Abschiebungen nach Afghanistan: Weniger sicher geht nicht

< 1 min

Tageszeitung, 2 February 2017

Op-ed commentary by AAN’s Thomas Ruttig on the latest attempt of the German federal government to bring state governments in line of its deportation policy of failed Afghan asylum seekers (in German). Main argument: the German government continues to fail to tell the public where the allaged “secure” or “relatively secure” regions in the country are and to explain why it even deports more Afghans from provinces it considers “unsafe” than to those it deems “safe(r)”.
