對於報道指黃台仰及李東昇獲德國給予難民身份,總領事館指出,出於保護私隱,不能提供有關個人庇護案件的任何消息。總領事館聲明強調,德國聯邦移民和難民事務辦公室(BAMF)負責授予難民身份的程序並獨立決定,BAMF在庇護程序期間,按法治程序審核每個尋求庇護者申請的原因。

聲明強調,德國外交部不參與有關決策,而總領事館會就此事與德國負責當局保持聯繫。

Press Release

The Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany has taken note of the concern expressed by the Chief Executive of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) over the granting of refugee status to two Hong Kong residents in Germany. The Government of the Federal Republic of Germany attributes great importance to the traditionally very good bilateral relations with the HKSAR.

The Consulate General would like to reiterate that the policy of the German Federal Government towards Hong Kong has not changed and that we will continue to foster our traditionally friendly relations.

With regard to the two cases of Hong Kong citizens who informed the press about having received refugee status in Germany, it should be noted that for data protection reasons the Consulate General cannot provide any information on individual asylum cases. The Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) is in charge of the procedure for granting the refugee status and takes decisions independently. The BAMF considers the motivation stated by every asylum seeker during the asylum proceedings in a case-by-case examination in accordance with the rule of law. The German Federal Foreign Office is not part of the decision-making process.

The Consulate General is in constant contact with the competent German authorities concerning the matter.
