Norway to Send Back Afghan Refugees to Discourage Others – The Nordic Page

Prime Minister Erna Solberg says it is important that some of the Afghan asylum seekers sent to Kabul to discourage others from coming.

According to VG’s report, last week asylum seekers from Afghanistan made up the largest group to Norway. Most of Afghan asylum seekers come across the border from Russia. Directorate of Immigration (UDI) had previsouly wanred that unaccompanied Afghan men who pass the border that way, risk to be sent back to Afghanistan – not to Russia.

Prime Minister Erna Solberg told VG that she expects UDI to follow up the orders from the Ministry of Justice, and send these asylum seekers back as quickly as possible.

– When it comes to asylum seekers coming from Russia, we see that many have residence permits, but they may come because they feel they are in a difficult situation economically and believe in a rumor that all are granted residence in Norway, says Solberg to VG.

She notes that it will send a clear signal if they are quickly sent bac kto Kabul.
