False asylum stories, double standards for mom and organic Christmas trees

23 min

Stories are for sale to help people get asylum in Sweden, a Radio Sweden and Swedish Radio investigation finds.

The investigation focused on websites that earn money by selling fake asylum stories and tailor-made packages for those who want to come to Sweden.

Also, a new book says working moms still face a double standard here despite the country consistently ranking in the top five of the World Economic Forum international gender equality study.

And, if you're buying a Christmas tree this year, are you going green when you choose one? Only a handful of growers in Sweden are certified organic, meaning they use no pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers on their trees, but more are coming onto the market.
