Norway deportations pass 200 / News / The Foreigner

Norway deportations pass 200. Southern Norway polices’ particular focus on some eastern European gangs this year led to an increase in certain deportation case types. Some types of returns are challenging, police say. “There have been a number of gangs from Eastern European countries, including Lithuania, Poland, Romania and Bulgaria. One of our main goals is to expel criminal foreigners,” Inspector Magnus Andreassen told NRK. The Agder police district officer added it is important to emphasize that most foreigners are not (this word was missing from the original article) criminals, “but there are a few who ruin it for everyone else. Therefore, it’s important to get those expelled. It’s a crime prevention tool which is very efficient.”

“There have been a number of gangs from Eastern European countries, including Lithuania, Poland, Romania and Bulgaria. One of our main goals is to expel criminal foreigners,” Inspector Magnus Andreassen told NRK.

The Agder police district officer added it is important to emphasize that most foreigners are not (this word was missing from the original article) criminals, “but there are a few who ruin it for everyone else. Therefore, it’s important to get those expelled. It’s a crime prevention tool which is very efficient.”

Current legislation provides for deportation of asylum seekers, foreigners working in Norway, as well as people who apply for family reunification. Police emphasize, however, that not everyone eligible for deportation can actually be so.

NRK reports police have been dealing with difficult cases of crime-related deportation. Inspector Andreassen stated, “This applies especially to young people who came to Norway when they were small but with little connection to the country they originally came from.” Others cannot speak their mother tongue which also causes difficulty, according to him.

Moreover, the Inspector declared another challenge is regarding those from countries they cannot be returned to because of the conditions there.

“It can also be a problem in cases where we lack identity documents and where the police cannot prove that he/she comes from the country that police believe he or she does. This means that nation will not accept them, so we can’t deport them either,” concluded Inspector Andreassen.
