At the moment we are faced in Iraq with terror coming from the militias and are not able to express opinions which are critical of the Iraqi government.
The Finnish Immigration Service (Migri) continues to insist that countries like Iraq, where Finnish nationals are discouraged from visiting, is a safe country to deport people. Migri deports everyone they don’t give residence permits. You leave either “voluntarily” or by “force.”
The Finnish Immigration Service (Migri) is planning to reassess the security situation in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Somalia after an initial assessment in May deemed these countries to be safe to return asylum seekers.
It was a sunny Saturday afternoon of June when Migrant Tales met Majid, an Iraqi asylum seeker who attempted to take his life after he had lost all hope and everything changed for the young man.
The suffering of tens of thousands of asylum seekers continues in Finland and there are no signs that matters will improve. The Finnish government, which has made it clear that it will deport the majority of asylum seekers who came to Finland, has risen the stakes.
