Migrants Confess Murders They Didn’t Commit To Delay Deportations From Germany
Migrants in Germany are increasingly confessing involvement in serious crimes, including murder, in their home countries to avoid deportation, according to a new report.
“Primarily male” persons from Afghanistan, Somalia, Pakistan and Libya are confessing to murders as a last resort. People from these countries have slim chances of being granted protection in Germany unless they risk torture or the death penalty upon returning home.
“The number of these investigations has increased significantly,” said Nadja Nielsen, a spokeswoman for the prosecutor’s office in the city of Frankfurt, according to Austrian daily OE24. “Since November we have been carrying out more than 60 procedures in which an asylum seeker has committed a criminal offense in his home country, forcing us to investigate.”
Most of the claims are “not very detailed, superficial and not credible,” Nielsen said. German law still forces authorities to launch an investigation into the confessions, which will delay deportations. None of the 60 ongoing investigations in Frankfurt have been finalized, Frankfurter Rundschau reported Saturday.

Many Afghan asylum seekers claim they used to be members of the Taliban, the German office form migration and refugees (BAMF) reported in April.

Germany has taken more than a million refugees since 2015. It is currently in the process of deporting tens of thousands of people back to Afghanistan.
