One family all has passports, the family members of the other three families do not all have them. “It’s almost impossible to get passports in Afghanistan right now,” Wegelin said. “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. It is now exactly three months after the last evacuation flight on August 26. 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.”
At the beginning of November, the group announced that it would go to court if they did not receive an answer to their demand within two weeks. At that time it concerned a group of 240 Afghans. Some of them did receive an offer for evacuation, others did not, according to Wegelin. With the summary proceedings, the lawyer now wants to force the families to be evacuated within two weeks of the judge’s ruling.
The hearing date will be announced tomorrow.
