Human Rights Commissioner Wants Germany To Stop ‘Forced Returns’ To Kosovo

Human Rights Commissioner Thomas Hammarberg has written to Germany’s Interior Minister urging him to “avoid” further ‘forced returns’ to Kosovo.

“The infrastructure and resources available there are in fact not adequate for the sustainable integration of returnees,” the Commissioner said following the publication today of his letter to the German Federal Minister of the Interior, Thomas De Maizière.

“Many of them, in particular Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian families with children, have been severely affected, not least because of discrimination, marginalisation and fear for their safety.

“The German government should avoid any further forced returns to Kosovo.”
