Deportation to Lebanon: Clan boss awakens rudely


Ibrahim Miri spent most of his life in Germany. Like many others from his family, he arrived in the mid-eighties without identity papers from Lebanon. At that time he was 13 years old. Later he became one of the main leaders of his family clan. The criminal activities of Miris include, among others, drug trafficking, arms trafficking and social fraud. But although Ibrahim Miri has been forced to leave since 2006, so far all efforts have failed to get him out of the country.

Now the authorities were successful. As the Interior Senators in Bremen and Berlin confirmed on Thursday, Ibrahim Miri could be spent on Wednesday in Lebanon. Details are silent about the "security interests" of the officials involved. According to a report of the "Bild" newspaper, it was a rather elaborate action, which was entitled "disturbing the night's sleep of Mr. Miri": Special forces entered at 3:40 in the morning Ibrahim Miris apartment in Bremen and sneaked to his Bed. The police awoke the sleeper with the announcement that he would be deported immediately. With a helicopter Miri was flown to the airport Berlin-Schoenefeld and spent there in a waiting Learjet. Already at 6:20 clock started the jet, so Miri could be handed over in the morning in Beirut to the Lebanese authorities.

Presumably, the action was related to a visit by the Berlin Interior Senator Andreas Geisel in Lebanon two months ago. The visit focused on topics such as the strengthening of the fire brigade there. But as it is said, "can not be ruled out" that the SPD politician has also spoken marginally about the deportation of Mhallami Kurds, which includes the Miri clan. At the Conference of Interior Ministers three weeks ago, Geisel had already announced that they were working on the repatriation of individual criminals in Lebanon. That Lebanon gets involved is remarkable.

The Mhallami settled until the last century, mainly in the south of Turkey. Only in the course of time they emigrated to Lebanon and were later – partly as a stateless person – involved in the 1975 civil war broke out. Prior to this conflict, many of the so-called M-Kurds (with ethnicity still controversial to this day) fled to Europe, especially to northern Europe. In Germany, the Mhallami clenched, especially in Berlin and Bremen, there in particular the family of Miris. The clan is said to have 3,000 members in the Hanseatic city. The police have already investigated more than 1,200 of them.
