During the last month, 423 citizens who didn’t have a right to asylum in Germany were deported to Serbia. The number of the people encompassed by the agreement on readmission is not increased as compared to the recent years, said Ivan Gerginov, Serbian Deputy Commissioner for refugees and migration. Though Germany announced deportation of the tens of thousands Serbian citizens from Kosovo, i.e. Albanians who massively fled from Kosovo to Western European countries in 2015, this didn’t happen. “Germany is sending Albanians directly to Pristina. Our main problem is deportation of people, who lived in inter-ethnic places in Kosovo and fled in 1999. There were many cases when they were deported, so some Serbs finished in Pristina – town a which is now inhabited only by Albanians. Then they had to escape from there,” said Gerginov. In the past year, 2806 Serbian citizens who were deported from Germany, Sweden and Switzerland arrived at Belgrade’s airport.
