Migration Board Criticizes Its Own Policy
An asylum seeking father who was denied his application for a Swedish residency permit and forced to leave his family and return to Lebanon should return to Sweden. This is according to the Head of the Swedish Migration Board, Dan Eliasson.
Eliasson said the that the splitting up of the family is unnecessary. According to the current policy a person must return to their home country and wait 6 months before re-entering Sweden.
A law which Eliasson says must be followed, but which the government should also change. He went on further to comment that the policy was old-fashioned and unnecessarily formal.
