Migrant Tales continues to hear about how some security guards at Luona, a private company that operates eight asylum reception centers in Helsinki, Espoo, Vantaa, and Hyvinkää, abuse their power. In February, the company’s general manager, Milja Saksi, said that the company has taken the necessary steps to address the racist treatment of its asylum seekers.
Do asylum reception centers have informers? If so, what do they inform to the management and how do they make life difficult for the rest of the residents? Migrant Tales has heard of one such alleged case at Luona’s Sokkakuja reception center.
Migrant Tales continues hearing disturbing news about the poor treatment by Barona security guards and the Finnish police of asylum seekers.
Abuses at the asylum reception centers run by Luona have come to light from the occupants who consider their alleged treatment by the staff of the private company as “gross abuses” and a breach of their “human dignity” and “rights.”
Helsingin Sanomat, Finland largest daily, published a story this month about three Eritreans who had found work at a logistics company in Vantaa thanks to a fast-track employment scheme at Barona, an employment agency that owns Luona, a private subsidiary that manages eight asylum reception centers in Helsinki, Espoo, Vantaa, and Hyvinkää.
