Fewer Iraqi Asylum-Seekers Welcome

Sweden is airing the welcome mat less and less when it comes to Iraqi asylum-seekers. 

With conditions for asylum tightening, individuals must now prove that they are personally under threat of persecution.  According to the Swedish Migration Board, the general situation in Iraq is no longer a basis for being granted asylum.

A pilot project is also spreading its wings with a view to bumping clear-cut asylum cases to the top of the queue for speedy processing. 

When it comes to granting asylum to Iraqis, Sweden leads the way in Europe, with the Iraqi community here coming second only to the Finns in size.
