A militant Muslim nonwhite invader who was once Osama bin Laden’s bodyguard has been given “asylum” in Germany—because being sent back to Tunisia would mean that he faces the risk of being tortured.
The astonishing decision was made last week by a court in Germany after the invader, named as Sami A., appealed against his deportation order.
The 39-year-old nonwhite, who traveled to Afghanistan in the late 1990s, where he worked as Osama bin Laden’s bodyguard, will be allowed to stay in Germany after the administrative court in Gelsenkirchen ruled that he cannot be sent back to his home country of Tunisia.
As no other country is prepared to take him in, this means that he will now be allowed to stay in Germany.
German security services still consider Sami A. to be a dangerous and central member of the Islamist scene in the country and have had him under observation since at least 2006, the Rheinische Post reported.
“That such a man is allowed to stay in Germany is a punch in the face to all anti-terror investigators. He protected the most wanted man in the world and we treat him with kid gloves,” a security source told the newspaper.
The court ruled that it was precisely his links to al-Qaeda that put him at risk in Tunisia.
“Although the human rights situation in Tunisia has clearly improved over recent years, in this particular case there would have still been enough of a risk of torture and inhuman treatment that he could not be sent back,” the court said.
Sami A.’s case has been dragged through the courts for close to a decade as he has desperately fought the deportation order.
For years he won the protection of the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF), which judged Tunisia to be too dangerous, and the risk of torture in prisons there too high to justify his deportation.
But BAMF recently lifted this ban, arguing that the conditions in Tunisian detention had improved in a long-term way, meaning the bodyguard had to once again appeal a deportation order through the German legal system.
Thus Germany has, thanks to the “asylum” system, now also become home to some of the world’s most extreme Muslim terrorists.
