The assessment of asylum decisions by the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) raised only a few complaints, according to press information. The fear that many migrants might have unfair protection in Germany does not seem to confirm, writes the Süddeutsche Zeitung (SZ) in its edition of Monday.
Quote 0.7 percent
In the first half of 2018 Of the more than 43,000 completed test procedures, only 307 were terminated because the BAMF had withdrawn the previously granted protection status of a refugee. This appears from a reply from the Federal Ministry of the Interior at a request from the member of the Bundestag Ulla Jelpke (left), as the SZ reports.
Jelpke told the newspaper that the "politically oriented side" repeatedly gave the impression that there are significant safety deficiencies in the BAMF. "None of this is true."
The Bremen Affair
In the spring of 2018 it became known that the Bremen branch of the BAMF granted asylum to hundreds of people since 2013, although it was probably lacking the legal basis or the application of the applicants had been thoroughly tested. This led to a broad public discussion about asylum policy in Germany, which led to the replacement of the president of the federal government, Jutta Cordt, in June.
