Migration Court: Small technicalities should not result in deportation

Published torsdag 14 december 2017 kl 16.36

The Swedish Migration Court of Appeal has ruled that the Migration Agency should look at the entirety of an individual’s case when making a decision and that small administrative errors should not result in deportation.

Danyar Mohammed, a pizza chef from Iraq, brought his case to the Migration Court of Appeal after he was issued a deportation notice last spring. Mohammed’s employer had been paying him SEK 460 below the minimum salary standards violating a collective union agreement. Even after the employer corrected the mistake and compensated him with back pay, the Migration Agency said that the oversight was grounds for deportation.

In light of the Court’s ruling, Mohammed has now been granted a two year residence and work permit.

Radio Sweden spoke to Dardan Gerxhaliu, a lawyer from the HI Law Firm which specializes in migration. He said that this ruling marks progress. 

"We hope to see a more human assessment of every applicant," he said.
