Commissioner calls for release of immigration detainees while Covid-19 crisis continues

Die Menschenrechtskommissarin des Europarates Dunja Mijatovic fordert Staaten dazu auf, Menschen aus der Abschiebehaft zu entlassen. Diese sei aktuell rechtlich nicht haltbar:

Under human rights law, immigration detention for the purpose of such returns can only be lawful as long as it is feasible that return can indeed take place. This prospect is clearly not in sight in many cases at the moment. Furthermore, immigration detention facilities generally provide poor opportunities for social distancing and other measures to protect against Covid-19 infection for migrants and staff.

So wurden in Belgien, Niederlande, Spanien und UK bereits alle Abschiebehaftgefangenen entlassen.

Leave No one behind: Abschiebeknäste schließen – Lager evakuieren!
