The Immigration Appeals Board it to apprise the government of work a year on from issuing the asylum child policy whitepaper.
Information given to Klassekampen suggests the UNE finds their practices are in line with what the official ‘Barn på flukt’ document suggested.
This whitepaper deals with taking more account of the best interests of the child when the UNE examines applications that have been initially been refused.
Many have called for an amnesty for children of parents that have been in Norway for several years whilst waiting for a decision, which the government has turned down.
Deputy Minister of Justice Pål Lønseth is also of the same view as UNE officials, believing they are doing the best in asylum cases involving children.
“Reporting from UNE shows that 40 per cent of those who demand [application refusal] reversals due consideration to the child's best interests are granted this,” he told the paper.
Over half of refused asylum application cases involving families with children have been reversed, the figures show.
Tri-partite coalition Socialist Left (SV) politicians state they find this number too low.
They will be campaigning for the government to introduce further legislation changes.
“We’ll be presenting our concrete proposals after the figures in the report are laid forth,” said Party leader Audun Lysbakken”
“We’ll be making clear suggestions on how we can ensure that the child's best interests are taken into account in all matters, and how we can resolve the situation for the many people who have waited [for a decision] too long,” he added
The UNE’s update will be presented to the government, Monday.
