The number of refugees who appeal their asylum decisions is expected to new record this year. The Migration Board estimates more than 32,000 cases, writes Ekot. Three times more than two years ago. The cases are relatively complicated and require considerable resources from the country’s administrative rights.
This is because more people who applied for asylum in Sweden will be refused earlier, according to Fredrik Bengtsson, communications director at the Swedish Migration Board.
“Last year there were very many Muslim from Syria and Eritrea, and there was a very high percentage of accolades.
“This year, there are other types of cases where the percentage of approval is lower. And that means, in turn, that the number of appeals is getting bigger, “says Fredrik Bengtsson.
The number of appeals that Migration Board will hand over to administrative law will reach record levels this year. It shows the Migration Board’s latest forecast released in late July.
The Migration Board thinks that the figure will exceed 32,000 cases. It is three times as much as the number of asylum cases appealed two years ago.
The number of appeals increased markedly last year, after record numbers sought asylum by 2015.
Last year, the Migration Board handed over 24,000 cases to the administrative courts, more than twice as many as the year before.
And many administrative courts took various measures to cope with the increased pressure.
For example, on administrative law in Malmö, two new units were set up last September, and that planning continues, according to Ulrika Geijer, Head of the Administrative Court in Malmö.
“We are planning to set up another unit that only works with migration targets in September 2017,” says Ulrika Geijer.
So far, in Malmö Administrative Court, more than 5 700 cases have been settled this year. It is 50 percent more than the same period last year.
The issues that take the longest time are those dealing with refugees, so if and on what grounds you have asylum reasons in Sweden.
In order to streamline the work further, the new unit will only work with a certain type of case so that they do not have to wait in the same queue as asylum.
“The risk is that if you have all such goals in the same business, then the asylum goals will be quite resource-intensive, to overcome other migration goals, so they stay longer than may be needed,” says Ulrika Geijer.
