Internal Security: Faeser: Talks about deportations with several states

After the knife attack in Mannheim, the Chancellor announced that criminals should be deported back to Afghanistan and Syria. The Federal Minister of the Interior spoke about the current state of affairs.

Federal Interior Minister Nancy Faeser wants to inform her state colleagues confidentially about her efforts to deport serious criminals and Islamist threats back to Afghanistan. The SPD politician announced this before the start of the Interior Ministers’ Conference in Potsdam today.

“We are negotiating confidentially with various countries to open up ways to make deportations to Afghanistan possible again,” Faeser said in an interview with the “Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung”. The aim is to consistently deport violent offenders when they are released after serving a prison sentence in Germany.

“And we want to consistently identify and deport Islamist threats.” She said it was important that the federal police could support the federal states responsible for this as quickly as possible in taking such steps.

Faeser had already reported on her ministry’s efforts to do so when presenting the new report by the Office for the Protection of the Constitution. As far as Afghanistan is concerned, there are now contacts with the authorities in Uzbekistan. The same applies to Syria: “We are talking to neighboring countries,” she says.

Scholz: “Such criminals should be deported”

As a consequence of the fatal knife attack in Mannheim, Chancellor Olaf Scholz announced that the deportation of serious criminals to Afghanistan and Syria would again be possible.

“Such criminals should be deported – even if they come from Syria and Afghanistan,” said the SPD politician in the Bundestag. And: “Serious criminals and terrorist threats have no place here.”

The chairman of the IMK, Brandenburg’s Interior Minister Michael Stübgen (CDU), demands that the federal government follow up the announcement with “facts”. He also considers negotiations with the Taliban, who rule Afghanistan, to be justifiable.
