new asylum law

after austria’s constitutional court overturned the government’s last approach to reform the asylum law, parliament is in for another try tomorrow.
the constitutional court found that the “neuerungsverbot” (asylum seekers should not be able to give further information to the 2nd entity) was not compliant with austria’s constitution.

now the civically/right-wing government gives it another try.
with the new law they’re going to stop asylum abuse, they say whenever possible or impossible.
that our BZ

    maybe force feeding is the most controversial issue because it doesn’t comply with austria’s constitution either. but how many asylum seekers go on a hunger strike, i.e. how many people would be affected by that? it’s probably not that much of an issue, compared to the 10 month arrest, which i find to be the most egregious proposal. if i want human H to be in country C instead of A, why in the world would i want to keep H in A for ten months? in order to collect more of them and take advantage of an airline’s group rebate? really looks like punishing someone for merely existing, as heinrich said.
