Traffic police: waldgrundstuck near bamberg remains favorite

traffic police: waldgrundstuck near bamberg remains favorite

The dispute over the hauptsmoor forest is shaping up to be a tough one. The bavarian ministry of the interior has reaffirmed its commitment to the controversial site at moosstrabe for the construction of the new traffic police station (VPI). Neither the tank washing area nor an extension of the existing buildings on schildstrabe are acceptable solutions from the point of view of the free state.

If a new police station were to be built on the planned site, almost three hectares of forest would have to be felled – a horror scenario for many in bamberg. The intersection of moosstrabe and armystrabe is the main access to the hauptsmoorwald recreation area, and is equally popular with walkers, cyclists and joggers.

"The real estate state of bavaria had already been in talks with the city of bamberg since 2013 with a view to acquiring a plot of land for a traffic police station on the conversion site." Several alternative sites have been chosen, such as the tank washing area, emphasizes martin scholtysik, spokesman for the ministry of the interior. During the voting, however, it became clear that the site in the main moorland forest was not suitable "for police tactical and construction reasons" is suitable and has a good highway connection.

Lander: no detention pending deportation in normal prisons

Lander: no detention pending deportation in normal prisons

According to a survey, only a few state governments can imagine housing detainees awaiting deportation in normal prisons.

A draft law of the federal government, which is to be discussed in the bundestag, provides for such a possibility. However, this would only be allowed if the prisoners who are obliged to leave the country are housed separately from the prisoners who are in jail.

A survey by the "mediendienst integration" has shown that 11 out of 16 federal states do not intend to make use of this option in principle. Six of them raise legal concerns. Baden-wurttemberg, bremen, north rhine-westphalia and saarland have no capacity in their prisons anyway. However, the survey also shows that the low number of available deportation places is seen as a problem by the majority of state governments. Nine states are planning to build new facilities or expand existing ones.
