Swedish Police want anyone who loses their passport to pay nearly SEK 1,000 for a replacement instead of the current fee of SEK 350 to help discourage people from selling their identifications to refugees.

Local newspaper Sydsvenskan reports that Swedish passports are being sold by traffickers to refugees who wish emigrate to Europe. 

According to Frontex, the European Union's border patrol agency, last fall one in four people attempting to enter the EU with someone else's passport had a Swedish passport.
