April 25th 17: 04.17: Consideration of Human Rights and Law during Deportations (more)

A comprehensive questionnaire was handed in by the faction of Bündnis 90/ Die Grünen and answered. Some findings can be reported on but some questionable excuses were made by the state government as well. As an example: the government does not record the incidents whenever a pilot rejects flying a deportation flight. This is hardly plausible. Saxony participated in funding“ Re-integration projects” which are supposed to show effect in the countries of origin after deportation with not less than 52.231,05 Euro for the years of 2015 and 2016. High risk pregnancy can only be diagnosed by public health officers. The expertise of specialized doctors does not count. Handcuffing a minor is simply the enforcement of an administrative act (which is the deportation). In front of other questions the government shuns away as it is the case with question 5 and 6 in the complex of questions on the hard ship commission.
