German Interior Minister to Strip Migrants from Syria of Refugee status

German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer announced a tough response to Syrian refugees who leave Germany for holidays in their home country.

"If somebody, a Syrian refugee, regularly takes holidays in Syria, he cannot honestly claim to be persecuted in Syria," Seehofer told Bild am Sonntag weekly. "We would have to strip him of his refugee status".

As soon as German officials learn of such trips, they will launch a probe into the migrants' refugee status, Seehofer added.

Talking to the Sunday edition of the mass-circulation Bild newspaper, Seehofer said German authorities were closely monitoring the situation in Syria.

"When the conditions allow, we will conduct deportations," he said.

Seehofer has repeatedly clashed with Chancellor Angela Merkel over her refugee policy, which he believes is too liberal.

Thousands of Palestinian refugees from Syriaa have migrated to Germany and other European destinations in recent years, fleeing the deadly war, which started in 2011. Hundreds of thousands of people have lost their lives in the conflict.
