Lawyers: government abandons Afghan refugees | Inland

Afghans who worked for years for Dutch aid organizations or the Ministry of Defense have been unable to contact the Ministry of Foreign Affairs since last Friday. On that day, the government decided to stop registration via Kabul@minbuza.nl. In Afghanistan, this led to confusion among Afghans who want to be evacuated to the Netherlands, according to lawyer Barbara Wegelin, who represents about ten Afghan families.

“It is completely unclear where they stand,” says Wegelin. “They have to make do with rumors and fragments of information.” A tour of asylum lawyers – who all work for abandoned Afghans without financial compensation – yields the same picture.
