Parvazol called on the German government to do more to rescue people at risk in Afghanistan. The organization said that Germany should not accept only the main members of families at risk; Because often all family members are at risk.
Günter Burkhart, director of the human rights organization Flightwell, has called for more efforts by the German federal government to rescue endangered people in Afghanistan. Burkhart told the German Writers’ Network media group on Friday that this would include signing an agreement with the ruling Taliban in Afghanistan so that those who had received protection promises from Western countries could fly out.
“The federal coalition agreement speaks of a non-bureaucratic process,” Burkhart said. According to him, what has been emphasized in the coalition agreement must now be turned into practical policy. “The dangerous situation in Afghanistan and the federal government’s move to evacuate the people are still a long way off,” he said.
Burkhart has called for a reconsideration of the hiring of former local staff. “The federal government should not only accept key family members at risk,” he said. “Because often all family members are in danger from the Taliban.” According to the director of the human rights organization Parvazol, the Taliban also hold adult girls and boys former employees of Western countries and organizations responsible.
As Burckhart put it, “the German government must begin evacuation flights immediately.” “These flights can transport food to Afghanistan on the way to Afghanistan, because the people of Afghanistan cannot be left hungry and on the way back, they can transport endangered people.”
