Mr. Goebel, bring Arash back to Munich!

English

Imagine it’s summer and you’re on vacation in Greece. Then your passport is stolen. Actually no problem, right? In no time at all, you usually have a document to fly home. But it is not so easy for everyone. For five months now, the German Embassy claims not to be able to issue a paper for Arash. Although his identity has been confirmed and even his lawyer is behind it.

We demand from the District Administrator Christoph Göbel: help Arash with his immediate return!

Arash Dosthossein is a political activist from Iran who fled to Germany in 2012 due to his political activities. He participated in the protest march from Würzburg to Berlin in 2012, which is seen as the beginning of the militant refugee movement. His political activities in Germany have led to his criminalization several times, especially by the Bavarian state, so he has not been able to get a passport for three years. With his current residence permit as a recognized refugee, he has at least been able to travel within the EU with a fictitious certificate.

Since August of this year, he has been in Greece and cannot return to Germany because his documents were stolen from him in Greece. For several months, the German embassy in Greece has not given him permission to return to Germany. It is possible that this process will continue to be dragged out.

We are friends of Arash, and are trying everything we can to help him return. By the German Embassy refusing to allow him to leave the country, not only has his current existence in Greece become a challenge, but his livelihood in Germany is in danger of being shattered. Due to the embassy’s months-long processing time, his social benefits in Germany have been cut off and his apartment has been revoked.

Arash is not the only one affected by this arbitrariness of the German embassy. We do not accept this action of the German authorities.

We call on the German embassy to immediately issue the necessary travel documents and to create a long-term solution to these circumstances in Greece. From the district council in Munich we expect them to help Arash with his return journey.

Please help us – share the petition! Mr. Göbel, help us to bring Arash back! We will get back to you with the next steps!
