(de-news.net) – The temporary border controls are to be continued, Federal Minister of the Interior Faeser said in an interview. She justified this by saying that the controls were necessary until the reformed EU asylum system, which primarily affects people with little prospect of protection, takes effect. In addition, “we are primarily thwarting human trafficking routes,” said the SPD politician. Since October 2023, more than 750 human traffickers have been caught through controls on Germany’s external borders with Poland, the Czech Republic and Switzerland. The German-Austrian border has been monitored for several years.

Faser emphasized that controls will be carried out at all German borders during the European Football Championship. This will apply from June, the minister said on ARD television. The Federal Police are receiving support from more than 300 foreign officials from the participating nations, added a spokesman for the Federal Ministry of the Interior.
