Expelled foreigners convicted of serious crime could be locked up again after serving their sentences.

According to police, 13 perpetrators from non-Western backgrounds have been indicted or charged with a total of 35 cases of sexual assault and rape between the autumn of 2006 and the end of 2009. Six of them have been asylum seekers at some point.

“We must protect society against dangerous people,” Oslo police district’s assistant chief constable, Hanne Kristin Rohde tells Dagsavisen.

She wants to stop them offending again by putting them in secure custody until they’re deported.

“We’ve seen several examples of people permanently expelled after being convicted of serious crimes who’ve committed new ones after their prison term,” she says.

Rohde goes on to say this type of thing happens because there’s no system in place to pick this up.

“We don’t like having to release people and just wait for them to commit new crimes.”
