In the dispute over the admission of refugees, the tips are now flying.
As is well known, the city of Vienna – like some other municipalities – has declared its readiness to take in children rescued from the burned down refugee camp Moria. As AUSTRIA reported, this prompted the Ministry of the Interior to request that they accept refugees from the Traiskirchen camp in Lower Austria. If they already had space left.
Vienna’s mayor Michael Ludwig (SPÖ) countered on Monday with a letter to Interior Minister Karl Nehammer (ÖVP): Like many Viennese, the pictures from Moria “touched him very much”. Therefore, he renewed his offer to take in refugees.
Ludwig did not want to do without a tip against the turquoise in the letter: “However, I am really surprised that you compare the living conditions of those people for whom you are responsible as interior minister with the situation in Moria, a completely overcrowded and meanwhile burnt down Refugee camp, compare. ”The SP city chief is“ of course ”ready to help Nehammer.
