German police have launched an investigation to find out how a Syrian deportee was able to sneak a nail file on board his plane and stop his family’s expulsion by threatening officials with it. They were set to be returned to Spain, where their asylum application was to be reviewed according to the Dublin III Regulation, the German magazine Stern points out.
As Frankfurter Neue Presse reports, citing the police, three officials brought the 33-year-old man, his wife and three kids onto a plane, bound to take them to Barcelona, at Frankfurt-am-Main’s airport. The man then suddenly pulled something sharp out of his pocket, which his initially thought was a knife.
Seriously Germany you gotta cut back on the benefits.
