Crime: Buschmann: Criminals must serve sentence before deportation

After the knife attack in Mannheim, criminals should be able to be deported back to Afghanistan. The Minister of Justice warns that this should not create an “incentive for violent migration”.

In the debate about the deportation of foreign criminals, Federal Justice Minister Marco Buschmann stressed that they must first serve at least part of their sentence in Germany. “Criminals must not be able to expect to be deported without punishment after an attack here and then perhaps even celebrated for their crimes in their home country,” the FDP politician told the “Rheinische Post”.

“This could possibly motivate violent Islamists to come to us and commit violent crimes with virtually no punishment,” warned Buschmann. “We should not provide this incentive for violent migration.” He also argued that criminal prosecution and punishment of perpetrators here in Germany is also important from a constitutional point of view.

Interior Minister Nancy Faeser (SPD) had already stressed that the aim was to consistently deport violent offenders when they were released after serving a prison sentence in Germany.

Germany does not recognize the Taliban government in Kabul

As a consequence of the deadly knife attack in Mannheim, Chancellor Olaf Scholz (SPD) announced that the deportation of serious criminals and terrorist threats 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.

How exactly this will work is still unclear. Germany does not recognise the Taliban government in Kabul. The German government is negotiating with various third countries through which it wants to facilitate deportations to Afghanistan.
