Last Tuesday evening saw Germany cracking down hard and deporting 8 (eight) convicted Afghan criminals. The men were put on a flight from Düsseldorf to Kabul.
The men were taken directly from prison to airport. Their convictions are:
1. rape in coincidence with grievous battery,
2. rape and attempted grievous battery,
3. grievous battery,
4. grievous battery and coercion,
5. grievous sexual abuse of children,
7. grievous sexual abuse of several children,
8. sexual abuse of a child, two attempted rapes, several cases of sexual coercion.
And still, a coalition of about 180 “refugee welcome” and fake “human rights”* activists gathered in the departure hall of Düsseldorf airport to protest the deportation.
(* we are for human rights, but there is very much wrong with these activists’ definition in a case like this, hence the quotation marks.)
There are 15.112 Afghans currently residing in Germany who are obliged to leave the country immediately (in theory), and 43.000 whose asylum applications have been rejected but who were given a suspension of deportation.
The district president of the German federal state of North-Rhine Westphalia last year calculated that under current German practice, it would take 20 years to deport every rejected asylum seeker just from the state of North-Rhine Westphalia alone.
