Germany: Bavarian politician explains why he sent busload of refugees to Berlin

Germany, Landshut

The governor of the small Bavarian town of Landshut, Peter Dreier, commented on his controversial decision to send a bus with around 30 refugees on board to the Chancellery in Berlin, Friday.

Dreir stated that all the refugees on board were informed before the trip why they were on the bus and all had agreed to participate in the action. "We urgently need free space. We have to accommodate all these people somewhere", he said.

The move followed a comment made by Dreier in October, when he said he would send refugees back in the case of asylum seeker numbers surpassing the agreed quota. The refugees will be accommodated in one of the reception centres in Berlin.
