Fourteen individuals have been expelled by the Policia Nacional to Pakistan for their involvement in a radical organisation that glorified terrorist acts.

This joint effort between the General Information Commissioner and the General Foreigners and Borders Commissioner culminated in the expulsion of the detainees to Pakistani territory.

Coordinated operation across multiple cities

The operation took place on November 6. It involved a well-coordinated effort between the General Information Commissioner and the Information Brigades of various cities. These cities included;

  • Barcelona
  • Valencia
  • La Rioja
  • San Sebastián
  • Málaga
  • Lérida
  • Palma de Mallorca
  • Vitoria
  • Jaén

Furthermore, the individuals arrested were part of a Pakistan organisation with Pakistani origins that glorified terrorist acts.

New threat to national security

This radical group represents a new and serious type of threat to public security, consisting of individuals not directly linked to jihadist groups like DAESH or Al Qaeda. Instead, they hold an extremely intolerant and rigid interpretation of religion. Through their social media channels, they promote violence and idolize terrorist actions committed by followers of this organisation.

Expulsions in accordance with the law

The expulsions were carried out in accordance with Article 54.1a of the Immigration Law, citing their involvement in activities contrary to national security. The process involved thorough investigations, control, and monitoring under the guidance of the General Foreigners and Borders Commissioner. Such grave infractions automatically lead to expulsion and a subsequent ban on reentry into national territory.
