A few months after being deported to Lebanon, Ibrahim Miri, a leading member of the Bremen Miri clan, is back in the Hanseatic city. This confirmed the Bremen Interior Authority. "There is a ban on entry and residence, so it was obviously illegal to enter Germany, and criminal investigations have been initiated," said spokeswoman Karen Stroink.
According to information from the SPIEGEL, the Bremen district court has now ordered deportation detention until 2 December against Miri.
Miri had arrived a few days ago, his lawyer Albert Timmer told the regional magazine "buten un binnen", which had first reported on the return. He had requested asylum for his client in writing, said the lawyer. Miri had returned to Bremen because he had been threatened with death in Lebanon.
According to SPIEGEL information, Miri had been provisionally arrested during a visit to the Bremen branch of the BAMF for illegal entry into the Federal territory.
Before being deported in July, Miri was, according to a decision of the Bremen Interior Authority, which is the SPIEGEL present, a seven-year entry ban. (Read more about the case here).
According to the report of "buten un binnen" according to his lawyer Miri "because of his entry without a required visa and passport" self-reported. Furthermore, he filed a complaint against the Interior Authority with the Bremen Administrative Court, as the deportation was unlawful.
