Imprisoned Without Charge

Published tisdag 13 oktober 2009 kl 12.56
Migrationsminister Tobias Billström

Failed asylum seekers are being jailed before deportation, something that has led to international criticism.

In the first six months of 2009 128 people were remanded before being expelled from Sweden, despite a statement in the summer from the European Convention for the Prevention of Torture that this should be stopped.

Speaking to Swedish Radio News Mats Edsgården from the Prison Service says that one reason for imprisonment can be the deportee's own poor mental health.

The Migration Minister Tobias Billström says that this question will be dealt with by a government committee that will present its findings on the matter next summer.
