BERLIN, Aug. 23 (UPI) -- German authorities' deeply rooted prejudices allowed a neo-Nazi to carry out repeated, violent attacks against immigrants, a parliamentary report states.
The parliamentary investigation was ordered in 2011, after police discovered a link between a bank robbery and unsolved killings, the New York Times reported.
The three-member cell operated in Germany for more than a decade, and was allegedly responsible for the killing of nine small-business owners, eight Turks and one Greek.
Beate Zschape, the only survivor of the cell, is standing trial in Munich, the Times said.
The inquiry concluded prejudice led police to draw quick conclusions about the killings based on the ethnicity of the victims.
"Turks murder Turks -- that seems to have been the mentality," Sebastian Edathy, a lawmaker who was chairman of the investigative committee said.
The report, which was 1,357 pages, called for a number of changes, including more training and the recruitment of more ethnic minorities.
The report received mix reviews, the Times said.
Rainer Wendt, the head of Germany's police union, said the findings were unfair and excessive while lawyers representing the victims' families said the report did not go far enough.
