malmoA Civil Liberties Committee delegation visited Malmö, southern Sweden, from 19 to 21 September to look into the country’s border controls with neighbouring Denmark. These were reintroduced in November 2015 in response to the vast number of refugees trying to reach Sweden. Members also checked how Swedish authorities are managing to integrate unaccompanied minor asylum seekers.
“Border controls may deter migrants from entering the country, but they come with limits and high costs. Sweden also continues to have a generous policy towards asylum seekers and refugees, but does not unfortunately seem to prioritize the tracking and safe-keeping of thousands of vulnerable unaccompanied minors: which may lead to human rights violations and entail security risks”, said delegation chief Anna Gomes (S&D, PT).The aim of the delegation, formed by 6 MEPs, was to evaluate the operational aspects of the ID and border control checks. MEPs also met with representatives from the Swedish Migration Agency to talk about the procedures for asylum in Sweden, with national police to discuss their work on combating human trafficking, as well as with NGO: s Save the Children and Öresundsinstitutet.They further visited the border control points on the Öresund bridge, at Hyllie train station and in the Helsingborg port.
Delegation: Ana GOMES (Head of delegation, S&D, PT), Kristina WINBERG (EFDD, SE), Malin BJÖRK (GUE/NGL, SE), József NAGY (EPP, SK), Anna Maria CORAZZA BILDT (EPP, SE), Emilian PAVEL (S&D, RO).
