"The German government must immediately gain access to the US air force base in Ramstein and find out whether it is being used for the drone war in Asia and Africa, which is contrary to international law. We have been calling for this for years. I am glad that the Higher Administrative Court in Münster now also has doubts as to whether the deployment practice in Ramstein complies with international humanitarian law", explains Andrej Hunko, member of the Bundestag.
In the "Bin Ali Jaber v Germany" case, the Higher Administrative Court ruled in favour of three plaintiffs from Yemen on decisive points. The German Government must urge the USA to comply with international law when using its Ramstein military base. The Foreign Office had always rejected this obligation and declared that there was "no reason to assume that the provision of the Ramstein Air Force Base could be an aiding and abetting of an international crime or itself an international crime".
