Germany could stop migrant relocation process – spokesperson

Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

A spokesperson for the German Interior Ministry said the country could seek to leave the planned redistribution of asylum seekers if the number of migrants relocated runs into thousands.

The website InfoMigratns stated that although Germany has been leading the way in accepting redistributed migrants, the country’s interior ministry continues to have some doubts about introducing an automatic mechanism to that end. 

It explained that Germany could abandon the automatic redistribution mechanism for asylum seekers arriving in Italy and Malta if the program ends results in human traffickers creating a significant increase in the number of migrant arrivals.

Steve Alter, a spokesperson for the German Interior Ministry, said that Germany might reconsider the automatic redistribution system of migrants that is supposed to be passed at the European Union Interior Ministers’ meeting in Luxembourg on October 8.
