Worries Over ’Voluntary’ Deportations

Published tisdag 23 december 2008 kl 10.16

Support workers say the Migration Board is pressuring deported asylum seekers not to appeal.

This year around 1000 applicants for refugee status have signed a so called ’declaration of satisfaction’ for the Migration Board -double last year’s figure.

This means they agree that they have been treated fairly and commit themselves to leave Sweden voluntarily.

But an investigation by Swedish public radio has found that many asylum seekers have felt pressurised by their case worker to sign the satisfaction declaration.

The Migration Board will not pay for legal support, so asylum seekers are alone when they face what has been called increasingly aggressive treatment from the authorities.
