The commune has had contact with ISIS “returnees”
February 14, 2018
Nearly 509 people are believed to have returned to Gothenburg after participating in battles for terrorist groups such as the Islamic State. Of these, the municipality has had contact with “a handful”, reports the Gothenburg Post.
One third of the ISIS recruits who returned to Sweden are in Gothenburg, most of whom came from Angered and East Gothenburg.
According to the municipality’s coordinator for the work against violence-inducing extremism, Angered district administration is the only one that clearly has stated that they have been in contact with people who have been in Syria. Several of the ISIS recruits had a criminal background before they left the country and, after they returned, have continued to perpetrate crimes such as theft, violence and drugs, according to local police district manager in northeast Gothenburg.
