Skip to comments.Ex-official in Bremen suspected of illegally approving 1,200 asylum cases [Germany: Yazidis]

A senior official at the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) allegedly granted asylum to more than 1,200 applicants without valid legal reasons for their approval. She has since been removed from her position.
The employee headed the BAMF office in Bremen and worked with three lawyers who assisted her in wrongfully granting asylum to refugees from other federal states, according to joint research conducted by Süddeutsche Zeitung (SZ), NDR and Radio Bremen.
Many of the applicants were said to have been Yazidis, a Kurdish religious minority living mainly in northern Iraq and northern Syria. During the reign of terror by the Islamic State in northern Iraq, they were systematically persecuted as infidels.

What the journalists kinda left dangling out there, without explanation...is that there was a middle-guy to the asylum bureau and the applicant....some mafia-like characters, who would take the cash from the applicant and ‘grease’ the deal.
They suggest 1,200 got the asylum approved via this way. I’m guessing around 1,500 Euro from each applicant was required...with 500 going to mafia connection and the rest toward the idiot asylum approval officer.
All of this will trigger people to now ask....who else took bribes, and they will have to go and start asking questions over the whole government organization. Maybe it’s just one single group...maybe dozens of folks took the bribes.
What I noticed is the focus on someone who was doing this for Yazidi Kurds. The Mahometans regard Yazidis as worshipers of the devil; they identify the Peacock Angel of that religion with Iblis (Satan). It’s almost as if BAMF was going after this particular official on behalf of the Mahometans.
I think the mafia guys probably convinced the Kurds that a greased ‘deal’ had to be done. We may find out that virtually all of these people would have passed with zero issues, even without the bribe.
For that BAMF individual....some kind of jail-time will come into play, plus the tax folks will ask questions as well.
Its a bit humorous that bribes come up on these visas....five years into this whole episode now.
