Refugees frequenting their war-ravaged countries on vacations will risk being deported from Germany, as such “holidaymaking” means they are no longer in danger at home, the European country’s interior minister has warned.
“Syrian refugees that regularly spend holidays at home can’t seriously talk about being persecuted in Syria,” Horst Seehofer told Bild am Sonntag, adding that those following that logic “should be stripped of asylum.”
Immigration authorities are closely following recent developments in Syria so that “repatriations” are carried out “when the situation allows.”
His comment came as a wrap-up to the tabloid’s report which highlighted Syrians who have consistently visited families or relatives back in their home cities without reporting these trips to German authorities upon return. (RT)
