Since the beginning of the year, we have deported about 400 people and these deportations are still planned
– Michalska said. She emphasized that this type of procedure is not explicit.
We are talking here about people who do not want to apply for international protection or have declared – we have many such cases among Iraqi nationals – that they want to return to their country. Although they would like to return on a certain day, our procedures are ongoing – so they should receive a formal administrative decision obligating them to return. Before receiving it, we have to confirm their identity, and these people do not have any documents
– Explained the spokeswoman for the border guards.
As she emphasized, most people have recently returned to their countries on scheduled trips, in this case 30%. Poland covers the costs.
We also have to wait for flights (…) On scheduled flights, usually 2-3 people are carried, for this number of people the carrier agrees
– She said.
As she added, border guards always travel with such people, and if necessary – also a doctor, psychologist or observer from an NGO.
It’s not like we put the person on the plane and they come back. This is a whole complex process, and it’s all going on
– Second lieutenant confirmed. Michalska.
