“The deportation was never arranged because the North Rhine-Westphalian authorities concluded that expulsion was unenforceable.”
This is a good indication of what’s wrong with the political establishment in Europe and North America. The expulsion of Amri should never even have been a question. It should have been understood as a national security issue.
“German politicians were warned that Berlin Christmas market attacker was plotting carnage NINE MONTHS before the massacre,” by Allan Hall, MailOnline, March 26, 2017:
Evidence has emerged in Germany that politicians were warned nine months before Berlin’s Christmas market massacre that Islamic State disciple Anis Amri was plotting carnage.
The State Criminal Office in North Rhine-Westphalia made Tunisian-born Amri’s lethal intentions known to authorities in March 2016.
But the bogus asylum seeker remained at large until December 19 when he hijacked a Polish lorry and drove it into a crowd of revelers in Berlin, killing 12 and injuring dozens more.
Amri, 24, fled across Europe to Milan, Italy, where he was shot dead by police five days later.
It was known that Amri had moved in and out of the radar of police and intelligence services during his time in Germany.
But now a letter has surfaced written in March last year to the ministry of the interior of the state parliament in Duesseldorf which stated: ‘Amri presents a threat in the form of a suicide attack. The commission of a terrorist attack by Amri is expected.’
The letter went on to suggest deporting him and contained evidence of a tapped phone conversation in he had in February in which Amri used the word ‘Dougma’ – a metaphor, say German spies, that Islamists use to mean a ‘suicide bombing’.
The deportation was never arranged because the North Rhine-Westphalian authorities concluded that expulsion was unenforceable.
And additionally, Amri claimed to have no passport and Germany could not send him home because Tunis denied he was a citizen until the day after the killings.
Even after the attack, regional Interior Minister Ralf Jäger several times said it was not ‘legally possible’ to order a deportation.
The new details are a further embarrassment to the government whose intelligence services are struggling to contain terror threats from Islamic fanatics who smuggled themselves into the country disguised as refugees….
