At least 29 former employees of a refugee shelter sat on the defendants’ bench in a court in Siegen on Thursday, facing charges of abuse and mistreatment of refugees.

According to reports, the majority of the defendants were security guards at the shelter in Buerbach, next to Siegen. They are accused of locking the refugees in so-called “problem rooms,” where they abused, threatened and coerced them for allegedly breaking house rules.

Reports claim that the defendants also documented the acts with photographs and videos. In one photo that emerged, a security guard was seen posing with his boot on the neck of a handcuffed refugee who was lying on the floor.
