An asylum-seeker who was wrongfully deported from Germany to Afghanistan was flown back to Berlin on Sunday, according to the federal police.
His case was the latest in a series of deportation mishaps in Germany.
The 20-year-old Afghan man was one of 69 people deported on a charter flight from Munich at the start of July. The man, whose initial asylum request was rejected in April 2017, had been waiting on a decision on his appeal before an administrative court in the German town of Greifswald, and should not legally have been deported.
His case came to light two weeks after the deportation. The Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) has admitted there was a “procedural error.”
“I’m happy to be back in Germany.
I hope I may stay here, and I thank you for your great support,” the man, identified under Germany’s privacy laws only as Nasibullah S., told Norddeutscher Rundfunk shortly after his arrival at Berlin’s Tegel Airport.
In April, a 22-year-old asylum-seeker from China was wrongfully deported after a faxed court ruling failed to reach local authorities in Bavaria. His lawyer later said he had not heard from his client since his deportation. In December, a 24-year-old Afghan identified as Hashmatullah F. was brought back to Germany after being wrongfully deported three months earlier. He said he was threatened by the Taliban and almost killed because he worked with the Americans as a soldier. On his return, a court granted him a three-year residence permit and permission to work in Germany.
