The Tunisian, crashed into a crowd at a Christmas fair in Berlin, before the attack wanted to leave Germany, but he was not given
Terrorist Anis Amri, entered December 19, 2016 in the crowd at the Christmas fair in Berlin and killed 12 people before the attack and tried to leave Germany, but the authorities did not allow him to do it, according to the magazine Der Spiegel with reference to the German investigators.
As stated by Der Spiegel, a German senior official, “Amri was afraid he was going to jail for past dealings with drugs and a fight. And because he really wanted to leave” (translation site InoPressa).
A native of Tunisia Amri, who for some time was engaged in drug trafficking, and then suddenly became very religious and began attending a radical mosque in Berlin, was detained by German police on 30 June 2016 in Friedrichshafen, in the bus EN route to Switzerland.
On questioning, Amri told the investigators that “wants to leave Germany.” “Personally, I want to leave. Why should I stay here?” – asked Amri.
Not release potential terrorists to other countries in the Schengen area – a standard practice of the German law enforcement. The judge placed amry under arrest for two days to see if it was possible to deport him back to Tunisia.

After a failed attempt to leave Germany behavior Amri has changed. It is much less began to sit on porn sites and started to study Islamic literature and money from the sale of drugs sent to the family in Tunisia.
Amri constantly took drugs and engaged in their sale. As expected, during the attack he could be under their influence.
