Austria: Another brutal murder by a failed asylum seeker, yet the authorities may be handcuffed by insane laws that prevent his deportation.
The 33-year-old Turk, who on Wednesday stabbed the Dornbirner Amtsleiter because of a negative decision, cannot be deported because he could – at least theoretically – be threatened by the death penalty in Turkey. This is a loophole that needs to be closed.
The Turk claims to have been a member of a Kurdish militia and to have killed Turkish soldiers. Although the death penalty was abolished in Turkey in 2004, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has repeatedly announced that he will reinstate the death penalty, especially in connection with Kurdish militias. So far Erdogan has not found a majority in parliament. (So Turkey does not have the death penalty, but could someday…🤨)
For the time being, the suspected murderer, who was already subject to a residence ban in Austria in 2009 because of various crimes, will remain a “guest” in Austria, albeit in custody, but at the expense of the taxpayer.
To be honest, we have a hard time comprehending or even understanding this type of mentality. The V4 Report posted a story about a failed asylum seeker – wanted for murder in Afghanistan – who could not be deported because of the death penalty. A few weeks ago, he murdered an Austrian teen girl. This is the EU’s idea of justice and humanity?
* Interior Minister Kickl expressed his sympathy to the family of the victim. “My heartfelt sympathy goes to the relatives and friends of the assassinated official in Vorarlberg, whom I express my sincere condolences in. It is completely incomprehensible to us that someone who allegedly seeks protection here brutally destroys a human life.”
“Unfortunately, no-one can undo this crime, and our duty now is to fight for an asylum system at all levels that, above all, ensures the safety of our people as a core element, and I will do my utmost to help, even though I know it that it will not be easy,” concluded the Minister of the Interior.
** We have written extensively about Kickl in the past and we have no doubt that he will do his best to change the environment in Austria. Yet, his hands may be tied by the outdated laws and treaties of the past. Austria, for the sake of national security, has no other choice but to defy them.
If a country is free to sign treaties, they can surely withdraw from them. The European nation states may want to examine their prior commitments to global bodies, starting with this Council of Europe, to re-evaluate if its values and beliefs are still in line with the best interests of its people.
Organizations and circumstances change, and we no longer believe the Council of Europe represents the best interests of the European nation states.
If the Council of Europe or Brussels does not like the situation in Turkey, they can work with Turkey to try to change this; however, another nation’s laws regarding the death penalty should have no bearing on the government of Austria’s first and foremost duty of protecting its own citizens.
Regardless of what unelected officials in Brussels or at the Council of Europe think, the laws must be changed and Austria needs to deport this murderer and failed asylum seeker.
National security and the ability to govern one’s own country comes first…regardless of the empty threats from others. After all, what can they really do to Austria if the government deports this migrant back to Turkey?
It’s time to push back and to challenge the international elites…before it’s too late.
