Migration Officials’ Questionable Behavior

Published torsdag 22 december 2005 kl 11.59

More press reports have surfaced of questionable behavior among employees at the Swedish Migration Board.

Swedish Television News has broadcast a recording of a case officer insulting a blind asylum seeker. When he says he is ready to commit suicide, the case officer replies he can do as he wishes, finally ordering him out of her office, as her next appointment is waiting.

Swedish Radio News says that she has now been suspended.

The newspaper “Dagens Nyheter” reports Thursday that a second board employee has also been suspended, after she invited colleagues to share a cake because a single mother and her three children were being kicked out of the country.

Earlier this week “Dagens Nyheter” revealed that another board employee invited colleagues to champagne to celebrate the expulsion of a family with a severely ill child.

At a press conference Thursday, the board’s director general made a formal apology, and presented a six point program to improve the agency’s ethics. She resisted demands for her resignation.
