Germany urges to roll out controversial deportation provision

Berlin, Jun 9 (Prensa Latina) Former German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel on Sunday urged Federal Chancellor Olaf Scholz to enforce a controversial provision to deport immigrants allegedly suspected of being dangerous criminals to Afghanistan.

The German government should try to negotiate with the radical Taliban movement to make the deportation of such elements to Afghanistan a legitimate act, Gabriel said, amid complaints from human rights groups opposed to the practice.

We must receive proven guarantees from Kabul that the people deported to Afghanistan will in no way be subjected to torture or killed, Gabriel considered in an article published by Bild am Sonntag.

Amid allegations of discriminatory policies against deportations of asylum seekers, Gabriel urged Scholz to be tougher on the deportation issue and called for punishing countries like Afghanistan if they refuse to take back their citizens.

Just three days ago, the German head of government vowed to tighten punishments for Islamically or politically motivated aggression and called for extending deportations of suspected criminals to Afghanistan and Syria, local television reported.
