Afghans sentenced to deportation were “evacuated” back to Sweden
August 26, 2021
Two of the Afghans who were flown to Sweden on evacuation flights were previously found to have been deported from Sweden for crime, TV4 Nyheterna reports.
The two Afghans were arrested on Wednesday when they arrived on an evacuation flight from Afghanistan to Arlanda.
They have been arrested for violating the re-entry ban.
“I think that everyone who has seen the pictures from Kabul and the airport realizes that the situation is not entirely simple when it comes to conducting border control there,” says Carina Skagerlind, a spokesperson for the police in the Stockholm region, to TV4 Nyheterna.
The criminal Afghans will now apparently be allowed to stay in Sweden, as Afghans are no longer deported.
Foreign Minister Ann Linde announced this morning that as of that time Sweden had evacuated more than 900 people from Kabul.
