8,000 Iraqis to be deported from Sweden
The Iraqi Asylum Seekers Federation says 8,000 asylum seekers in Sweden are under the threat of deportation, including some people of Kirkuk.
Dashti Jamal, the Iraqi Asylum Seekers Federation Secretary told Kirkuk Now, “The Sweden government has decided to deport 8,000 asylum seekers in Sweden, and they talked with the Iraqi government.” According to him, the Iraqi government had agreed to the decision after a meeting between the Iraqi FM and the Swedish Minister of Immigration.
Jamal said, “Last week we met with a Swedish envoy from the MoI and they confirmed the same thing.” He added, “We want them to have a normal life when they are deported with jobs.”
Jamal claims that the deported people were exposed to many psychological problems, some of them even sought refuge in suicide. According to the federation, 20.000 Iraqis were deported in the last four years from Europe as many others are under the threat of deportation.
The Federation is due to issue the statistics of deportees. The Federation defends the rights of asylum seekers; their main office is in Britain with some branches in other European countries.
