The German Federal Government continues to transfer endangered Afghans and former local staff to German offices. The German government has always been criticized for slowing the transition of Afghans at risk.
In response to a question from the newspapers of the Funke media group, the German Foreign Ministry said that on average “about 200 Afghans are transferred to Germany each week from Pakistan alone.”
The report added that the transfer of Afghans from Iran is regular.
According to the German Foreign Ministry, the German consulates have been able to issue more than 18,000 visas to former local staff and high-risk individuals who have received German promises since the Taliban seized power.
According to the report, at the beginning of this year alone, in the first two months of this year, about 5,000 Afghans without passports were allowed to leave Afghanistan by land and then continue their journey to Germany.
Since the Taliban took power in August last year, there has been constant criticism of the slow transfer of former local staff to German offices and others at risk.
According to German media reports, many of Germany’s former local colleagues, who worked for the German army, for example, are still in Afghanistan or in neighboring countries.
Pro-Ozol, a human rights organization and supporter of asylum seekers, recently warned that former local staff and their relatives “should not be forgotten in Afghanistan.”
