Asylum centre strike concerns officials

The recent release of 46 of 65 Trandum asylum residents due to 42 striking employees has led to the public being warned to take precautions.



Those staying at the centre were people who had been refused stay in Norway and were likely to have been sent out of the country.

Following police advice to people that they ensure they lock their homes properly and take extra care of their wallets and purses, an officer has underlined not all living there are criminals.

The Police Immigration Unit’s (PU) Geir Pettersen said, “Some of them are burglars, and one can only assume that they will resume their criminal behaviour when they are set free.”

Officers may have to spend the next couple of months tracking down those that are missing.

“I would assume that it will cost a six figure sum to bring back those who are released,” he said to NRK.

Progress Party (FrP) leader Siv Jensen feels that the strike action was very unfortunate.

“It can have serious consequences for those who are affected by crime, Many people have enough understanding that a strike can have consequences, but now it’s going too far. This is obviously very unfortunate.”

Unio have stated that a further 153 police will be out on strike on Thursday 7th June due to failures in negotiations..

A total of 1,137 police from different districts will be staging industrial action on Thursday unless a solution can be found.

The union also warns personnel at universities, colleges, and meteorologists at the weather centre in northern Norway will also be called out on strike, bringing the total number in the state sector to about 3,400.
