Government Wants to Keep People in Custody Longer

Sweden Proposes Major Changes to Detention Rules

The Swedish government is proposing extensive changes to the rules for when people can be detained and for how long. Migration Minister Maria Malmer Stenergard (M) and Ludvig Aspling (SD) held a press conference announcing the review of the current regulations.

Government to Review When and How Long People Can Be Detained

At the conference, Stenergard stated, “We are undertaking a comprehensive review of the rules.” The investigation includes looking into whether it should be easier to search people or their living quarters at the detention center. It will also examine whether more people should be placed in detention and for longer periods, up to eighteen months.

Minister: We Want to Keep More People in Custody for Longer Periods

The Swedish Migration Agency has been asking for these powers for some time, according to Stenergard.

Possible Alternatives to Detention Explored

The investigator will also look into whether high-security wards should be established at the repository and explore potential alternatives to detention, such as ankle shackles or requiring people to report to authorities regularly.

Review Signals Shift in Sweden’s Immigration Policy

In light of Sweden’s current immigration policies, it appears that the government wants to keep more people in custody for longer periods of time. This review could lead to stricter regulations and more stringent enforcement if implemented. It remains to be seen how this comprehensive review will affect those seeking asylum in Sweden and other countries.

Changes Likely to Have Significant Implications for Asylum Seekers

Sweden is shifting its approach to immigration policy. Proposed changes would make it easier to detain individuals and restrict their movements. This is likely to have significant implications for asylum seekers in Sweden and other countries, creating a more rigorous atmosphere.
