Wenig bekannt, ist nach den Albanern, vor allem Bulgarien ein Top Mafia auch für Drogen und Menschen. Die Hintermänner, sitzen u.a. in Deutschland und Europa und vermitteln diese Geschäfte, oft als Aylanten mit Aufenthalts Status und als Haupt Einnahme Quelle, der sogenannten Parteibuch Migrations Beratungungen und wo Schleuser Mafia Zirkel, als NGO’s getarnt sind.
Jeder Kurde, jeder Afghane, Tamilie, schleust mit System seine Verwandten mindestens ein nach Europa, inklusive gekaufter Ehepartner. Bei den Albanern und Kosovaren, laufen zur Zeit die Scheidungs Wellen, weil man diese dummen und Geld gierigen Ehepartner nicht mehr braucht. Viele Aktive hatten frühere ein „Grünen Partei, heute eher ein „Linkes“ Parteibuch und in Wirklichkeit rein Mafiöse Umtriebe, für den persönlichen Profit.

Bulgarian Asylum System Pushes Migrants West
Bulgaria fails to integrate its refugees and routinely locks up asylum seekers, despite EU and national laws banning the use of detention centres, forcing even those who might otherwise stay to try their luck in western Europe.

“What crime have I committed to be held a prisoner?” “When will they set me free? They are telling me six months, why six months?” “On what grounds are they detaining me? I am a refugee, not a criminal”.
Visiting the Liubimets detention centre on the Turkish-Bulgarian border is not for the faint hearted. Within seconds the few outsiders who visit are mobbed by dozens of angry immigrants, all yelling the same question in different languages: “Why are we in prison?”
“We don’t know why we are being detained. We haven’t seen anybody. Nobody explains what is going on,” a Tunisian man in his 20s shouts.
Another, an Algerian in his early 30s, chips in: “I know my rights. Are you [Bulgaria] in the European Union? I know the rules; you don’t have the right to put me in a prison.”
Bulgaria currently locks up the 1,000 asylum seekers it receives on average each year in two secure units, the Liubimets centre and another in Busmansti, just outside the capital city Sofia.
Most are detained for months on end, something that is against both Sofia’s national laws and EU regulations.
While Bulgaria is already failing to properly manage its asylum system, many fear the situation could spiral out of control once Sofia finally joins the border control-free Schengen zone.
On joining, the number of immigrants heading for Bulgaria is expected to rise dramatically, as the many thousands who currently cross illegally into the EU via the Turkish-Greek border may opt instead to slip into Bulgaria en route to the West.
Detention the ‘Only Option’
Government officials acknowledge they are breaking EU rules and national law, but insist they can only properly cater for just 400 asylum seekers at any one time in dedicated, open reception centres.
Nikola Kazakov, director of the State Agency for Refugees, says they are forced to incarcerate asylum seekers because they simply do not have enough places outside of these secure units.
“The biggest problem in the Bulgarian system of reception is the low capacity of the open reception centres, so we are forced to keep people who applied for refugee status in closed camps,” he says.
“Yes, it’s against the minimum standards for reception of asylum seekers but that is the capacity of Bulgaria.”

Bulgaria’s interior ministry has also admitted it is failing to meet even minimum EU standards. In March this year, it published a draft strategy detailing the system’s failings, including too few residential places for asylum seekers.
Sofia and Bucharest’s bid to join Schengen was postponed in September, after the Netherlands and Finland objected on the grounds both are unable to secure their borders.
Schengen members do not want to see a replica of the situation in Greece where in 2010 alone, 41,000 immigrants illegally crossed the Turkish-Greek border in the hope of making it to western Europe.
