3800 Rejected Asylum Seekers Request Reviews

Published fredag 2 december 2005 kl 11.46
Asylum demonstration outside parliament as the new law is adopted

Two weeks after the new law on asylum went into effect here, more than 3800 underground and rejected asylum-seekers have applied to have their cases reviewed.

This is somewhat less than the immigration authorities’ expectations.

So far 69 of the re-applicants have received permanent residence permits, 4 have been given temporary permits, and 4 have had their applications rejected again.

It’s unknown how many rejected asylum-seekers have gone underground in Sweden. It is possible that many will not seek reviews under the new law, as they could still be expelled from the country.
