Afghan families demand evacuation through the Netherlands via court | Inland

It concerns people who have worked for the Netherlands themselves, for example as an interpreter, or their family. In total there are seventeen people, including ten children.

“It is terribly bad there. They are in hiding and something has to be done now,” said their lawyer Barbara Wegelin. Not everyone has a passport, which would complicate the evacuation. “The Ministry of Foreign Affairs says it cannot evacuate people without a passport. But the Netherlands can do a lot of things, or at least try. I want to know what concrete efforts have been made to get those people out of there, because I don’t think the Netherlands is pulling out all the stops.”

In total, the Netherlands evacuated about 2,200 Afghans who have applied for asylum here. The mass flight of Afghans, also to other European countries, started last summer after the takeover by the radical Islamic Taliban. That happened when western countries withdrew their troops from Afghanistan.
