Many asylum seekers can be kicked out of their accomodations
Around 1,500 asylum seekers who have been turned down by the migration courts risk eviction from their accomodations when a new rule goes into effect next Wednesday.
On June 1, asylum seekers who have had their applications refused by the Migration Agency will no longer be entitled to a daily allowance or permitted to stay at asylum accomodations. News agency TT reported that the Migration Agency has said 4,500 people may be affected. And 1,500 of those live in asylum accomodations.
"We are fully aware that there are people who aren't planning to go. Some people will leave, and some will find somewhere else to live and continue to have contact with us. Some will refuse to move and will remain in the residences," said Sverker Spaak who works with the Migration Agency.
The new rule affects adults without children. If people refuse to leave their asylum accomodations, the matter is handed to the police. Spaak estimated there may be as many as 800 people may fall under that category.
