Vlad Tepes blog: Norway getting ready to return Somali migrants to Somalia (wow!)
Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 5, 2012
Well heck, why not! It was only a few weeks ago we learned that Mogadishu is safe—read all about it here!
We have heard of Canada sending Somali criminals back, but this is amazing for Norway!
In deepest secrecy, the government has prepared a return accord with Somalia.
It means that asylum seekers from Mogadishu and other southern somali regions can be sent back by force.
Somalis are the biggest group of asylum seekers to Norway. All in all, 1422 asylum seekers from Somalia came to Norway in 2011.
Last week, hidden meetings were held among state secretary Pål Lønseth (Ap) [socialdemocrates] and Somalia’s home minister, Abdisamad Mo’allin Mohamud.
VG Nett [this paper] knew before about the meeting but chose, for reasons of security, to wait with publishing the information until the minister had left the country.
Be sure to read the comments.
