|00:18||For several years the Migration Board has carried out activity|
|00:22||and paid for renovations and cleaning of a migrant residence in Töreboda municipality.|

|00:29||Garbage is thrown wherever, and repeated damage to the property takes place.|
|00:41||One of the residence’s prayer rooms hasn’t been cleaned for a very long time.|

|01:33||Increasingly fewer doors in the property are free from damage.|
|01:37||Most of the doors to the common areas seem to be broken.|
|01:45||Doors and windows are often left wide open,|
