German Refugees authority issues scandalous decision
The Immigration and Refugee Agency (BAMF) alleged that there is no systematic torture in Turkey according to their information and that the prison system is in line with the European Union standards.
The Immigration and Refugee Office took a scandalous decision over Kurdish refugee Idris Isen, who sought asylum in Germany last year.
Security units went to his flat and told him he was wanted by the Interpol and would be arrested if he leaved Germany.
Idris Isen was to be sentenced to 6.5 years in prison for his democratic struggle during his university years. He sought shelter in South Kurdistan in 2011 after his sentence was upheld by the Supreme Court. Isen, who has been working as a civil engineer for many years in Southe Kurdistan, suffered the pressures and harassment carried out by the KDP against the people of North Kurdistan since 2018. To flee the harassment, he went to Germany and applied for asylum last year.
The Immigration and Refugee Agency (BAMF) examined Isen’s asylum application, who is still in a refugee camp in the NRW State, and rejected his claim.
ANF has been able to see the 18-page ruling by the BAMF which contains praise for the Erdogan regime and claims Turkey is a state of law. Following the Turkish ruling, BAMF claimed that Isen was sentenced to prison for "membership of a terrorist organization" and therefore did not have the right to be granted asylum.
Suggesting that Isen had a fair trial in Turkey, the BAMF claimed he could be sent there and made his defense. The resolution also alleged that there is no systematic torture in Turkey according to their information and that the prison system is in line with the European Union standards.
Reacting to the decision of the German Immigration and Refugee Agency, Isen said: "I had to leave Kurdistan due to the pressures of the KDP, and now I am facing an unlawful decision in Germany."
