Germany has ordered the deportation of Bahraini political activist Sheikh Ahmed Nawar.
AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): Germany has ordered the deportation of Bahraini political activist Sheikh Ahmed Nawar.
Shortly after the order was issued, Sheikh Ahmed Nawar told LuaLua TV that he faces the threat of arrest and torture as soon as he touches down in Bahrain.
It is unclear why the deportation order was issued, three-years into Nawar’s asylum application.
According to local laws, Germany’s Federal Ministry of Migration and Refugees (BAMF) decides on whether to grant asylum requests but it is untimely up to local authorities in Germany’s 16 federal states to rule on whether the person should be forced to leave.
In the past, so-called ‘threats of deportation’ have been overruled by local authorities in cases where the country of origin was not safe enough to return people to.
