The Eurosceptic Alternative for Germany (AfD) party intends to sue Chancellor Angela Merkel for human smuggling, the party’s deputy chairman announced Friday.
BERLIN (Sputnik) – Party leadership demanded the German government to curb the flow of migrants into the country, boost border controls and increase the federal law enforcement numbers.
“Mrs. Merkel has been operating as a smuggler,” Alexander Gauland said in a message on the AfD website in response to the Chancellor’s decision to accept thousands of refugees arriving from Hungary.
AfD co-chairwoman Frauke Petry said Germany’s capacities to accept new migrants had been exhausted and decried the government for failing to offer a unified solution.
This week, German media revised the number of refugees expected to arrive in Germany this year from the previous estimation of 800,000 to nearly 1.5 million people.
The Bavarian state government said earlier Friday it was ready to take legal action with the Constitutional Court if Berlin refuses to stem the migratory flow.
