German Right-Wingers Demand Probe Into Gov't Asylum Policy Amid Bribe Scandal

During his third month in office, Horst Seehofer, from the sister party of Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union, is under fire for alleged mass abuses within Migration and Refugee Agency. Officials from one of its regional offices allegedly granted asylum for bribes; other branches are now being investigated.

Germany’s Interior Minister Horst Seehofer from the conservative Christian Social Union from Bavaria has announced that a branch of the Federal Migration and Refugee Agency (BAMF) in the state city of Bremen would no longer decide on asylum applications following revelations concerning numerous cases of misconduct there.

"Confidence in the quality of the asylum procedures and the integrity of the Bremen arrival center has been massively damaged," Seehofer’s statement reads.
