At least 27 Afghan refugees who were deported from Germany, arrived home on Thursday.
The Ministry of Refugees and Repatriation said the German government had deemed some of the 27 youths a threat to Germany’s national interests because a number of them committed crimes there.
The ministry said other deportees were those who gave contradictory information about themselves and their circumstances.
Abdulhabib, the father of a deportee, said he was informed at night about the deportation of his son from Germany.
He said his 21-year-old son left the country with a group of his friends eight years ago with the hope of starting a better life there.
“He was in Germany for seven years and then he went to France where he was identified and was jailed. Some days ago, I got an email which said my son will return home on Thursday,” he said.
“I spent at least 20 million Iranian Rials to tavel to Europe. I have not lived in Afghanistan. I went to Europe from Iran,” said Ismaeel, a deported refugee.
The Ministry of Refugees provides a primary facility for the deportees to spend some days and nights there, officials said.
“We have been given some bread and they will give us some money to go to our families,” said Rustam, a deported refugee.
