Justice minister open to electronic tagging idea
Sweden's justice minister, Anders Ygeman of the Social Democrats, says his party is willing to listen to the Green Party's proposal for electronic tagging of failed asylum seekers who are deemed a security risk and are waiting to be deported.
"It is especially a good idea for those who are judged to be a threat and who should be expelled, but there is an enforcement barrier. I believe it can be an alternative to the custody or supervision that we have today, " Justice Minister Anders Ygeman tells Swedish news agency TT.
The Green Party proposal for electronic ankle tags will be up for discussion next week in cross-party talks on action against terrorism.
