More aid money remains in Sweden

Published tisdag 18 juni 2013 kl 10.09

A seventh of Sweden’s development aid money stays inside the country and is used for covering immigration costs.

Over the past seven years, the amount of money taken from the development aid budget to finance immigration has quadrupled, say representatives of three Swedish aid organizations today, in an opinion piece in Dagens Nyheter Tuesday.

“Financing the costs of the Migration Board on a large scale, with money aimed for poor countries is not reasonable,” write the Swedish Mission Council, the Pentacostal church's PMU aid organization, and Diakonia.

Meanwhile, recent reports to the foreign ministry from Swedish ambassadors in Latin America sharply criticize the government’s planned phasing out of Swedish development aid to the region.
