    London, UK, January 7 – Significant and credible evidence has been uncovered of a concerted effort by German authorities to harass, intimidate and terrorise members and supporters of the well known non-violent Islamic political party, Hizb ut-Tahrir.

    Despite claiming to be the flag bearers of “human rights” and “freedom of expression”, in one case in recent days [15/12/03], German authorities forcibly deported Nizar Jaffar Abdullah Al-Saqqaf, a student from Yemen studying computer science in Frankfurt, after denying him legal representation, handcuffing him and flying him back to Yemen, despite the fact that his visa was valid until 26th September 2004. He was given an ultimatum - spy on Muslims for German intelligence or be deported. Even though he just had three months of his course remaining, he was thrown out of the country like an animal without even being allowed to take his belongings. This is all the more worrying given that human rights organisations have consistently criticised German authorities for their abysmal record on forcible deportations, including the deaths in custody of those awaiting forcible deportation.

    In other cases, students have been ordered to spy on the Muslim community for German intelligence or face immediate deportation, businessmen have been threatened with the withdrawal of their trader’s licences unless they work for German intelligence, academics working in German universities have been threatened with losing their jobs and deportation, rendering some of them stateless, for refusing to become spies for German intelligence and Muslim employees have been dismissed from their jobs after German police alleged, without evidence, that they were linked to terrorism.

    Dr Imran Waheed, a UK based doctor and Representative of Hizb ut-Tahrir Britain, said, “Such policies continue the downward spiral of German society towards Islamophobia, bigotry and right-wing extremism. The intimidation and harassment of our members and supporters by the German authorities is akin to that meted out by the tyrant rulers of the Muslim world and is entirely unacceptable. These actions that are reminiscent of ‘Guantanamo Bay tactics’ must immediately cease.”

    “The German authorities know full well that Hizb ut-Tahrir works as an intellectual and political party and does not use any form of violence.”

    Notes to Editors:

    (1) Hizb ut-Tahrir is an independent political party whose ideology is Islam. The party works throughout the Islamic world to resume the Islamic way of life by re-establishing the Islamic Khilafah [Caliphate]. The party adheres to the Islamic Shari’ah in all aspects of its work. It considers violence or armed struggle against the regime, as a method to re-establish the Islamic State, a violation of the Islamic Shari’ah. In the Western world, the party seeks to explain the Islamic ideology to Muslims, to create a dialogue with Western thinkers about Capitalism and its ills and to present Islam as an ideological alternative.

    (2) Interviews with Shaker Assem, the Representative of Hizb ut-Tahrir in Germany, are possible by arrangement [in German].

    (3) Interviews with Nizar Jaffar Abdullah Al-Saqqaf are possible by arrangement [in German/Arabic].

    (4) “No one has accused them [Hizb ut-Tahrir] of violence.” [Time Magazine Europe, 25th August 2003]

    (5) “Despite the allegations of governments, there is no proof of its involvement in terrorist activities in Central Asia or elsewhere…the party’s record provides no evidence of it being involved in terrorist activity against civilians, or in military actions against U.S. or Western interests.” [ICG; Radical Islam in Central Asia: Responding to Hizb ut-Tahrir]
