SWEDEN Fingerprint reason for transfer to Italy

A growing number of unaccompanied minors are transferred from Sweden back to Italy where they first sought asylum. The children themselves claim that they never sought asylum in Italy, but that they left their fingerprints there. These fingerprints can become the deciding factor in whether or not to deport the children, since the Swedish Migration Board (SMB) can interpret a taken fingerprint as a commenced asylum process. Fredrik Beijer from the SMB says that only a fingerprint match in Italy is not enough to consider it an asylum-application. Laura Boldrini, spokeswoman for the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) in Rome, confirms Beijers’ statement. She says that minors who have fled to Sweden and want to seek asylum there should have that opportunity. – It is the best for the children, says Laura Boldrini.

Swedish child deportations break asylum rules

Published : måndag 08 oktober kl 10:49, Radio Sweden7 gillar

Swedish Radio News reports that unaccompanied refugee children are being sent from Sweden back to Italy under apparently false pretences.

While the immigration authorities here claim the children have already applied for asylum in Italy, Swedish Radio News says all that’s happened is that they had their fingerprints taken there, which is not the same thing.

Under the Dublin Convention children should be processed in the European country where they first applied for asylum. But Swedish Radio News has spoken to several children who say they never applied for asylum in Italy, all that happened was the police there took their fingerprints. One Afghan boy says the Italian police specifically said this did not mean he was applying for asylum.

This claim has been backed up by the Italian authorities who tell Swedish Radio News that few children apply for asylum there. The representative of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in Rome, Laura Boldini, also says giving fingerprints there is not the same as applying for asylum, and she tells Swedish Radio News that they believe unaccompanied minors who seek asylum in Sweden should be processed here, as it is best for the children.

Italy has been strongly criticised over its treatment of refugees.
