< 1 min

Die Tageszeitung, 29 October 2013

Article by AAN’s Thomas Ruttig about the latest turn in the German government’s attitude vis-a-vis local Afghan employees of the Bundeswehr and other German institutions who feel threatened and are applying for asylum. He says the the new regulation increases the numbers of Afghan who can enter Germany without an asylum procedure but also excluded lareg groups of Afghans — all those who have worked for the Germans before June 2013. He also points out that there is not only a threat for Afghans working for foreigners in Afghanistan coming from the Taleban, but also from criminal network and from  anti-foreigner populism spread by leading Afghan politicians (in German).
