Germany, Allies Asked to Stop Deporting Afghans

Germany, Allies Asked to  Stop Deporting Afghans

KABUL - The Afghans deported from Europe run the risk of being recruited and radicalised by militant outfits, a new study warned on Wednesday.
Deported from Germany and EU countries, they were at risk of death and radicalisation, said the Medico International and the Afghanistan Human Rights and Democracy Organisation (AHRDO).
The plight of deportees, who are given little reintegration support by the government or the global fraternity, was worsened by rising violence across Afghanistan.
According to Deutche Welle, AHRDO urged Germany and its allies in Europe to put a stop to deportations to Afghanistan.
AHRDO Executive Director Hadi Marifat was quoted as saying: "Deportations have to cease immediately because we are violating their human rights."
He said Germany, which did not deport Syrians, ignored the risk that the Afghans sent back home could be killed at any moment in their country.
Since 2015, EU nations have deported about 20,000 Afghans. More than half of them returned voluntarily under programmes that guarantee resettlement funds.
Fifty-eight percent of respondents said they were unable to return to their communities of origin because they felt unsafe. (Pajhwok)
