Germany returns fleeing Afghan trainees to Czech Republic

Nov 22, 2016 - 13:38

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Two Afghan trainees at a Czech military school, who flew to Germany without permission, have been sent back to the Hradec Kralove airport in east Bohemia, a news report says.

Česká tisková kancelář(CTK) news agency cited Daily Pravo as saying since the two trainee helicopter pilots had not breached any Czech law, they would be held accountable by Afghan authorities.

Police spokeswoman Hana Klecalova was quoted as saying: "They had a permitted stay in the Czech Republic. By crossing the internal border of the Schengen Area, they did not breach any law,"

Czech police mounted a search for the missing soldiers based on a tip, the newspaper said. The German police found the men aged 20 and 26and returned them to Hradec Kralove.

The trainees went missing on Wednesday morning from a hotel in Lazne Belohrad. "We started a search and loaded the relevant data in the information system of the Schengen Area countries," Klecalova told the daily.

Later in the day, thesoldiers were tracked in Germany and sent back to Germany. The Afghan group is trained by private companies under USsupervision.
