The Swedish Migration Court has overturned a 2015 decision, granting permanent residency to an Afghan migrant murderer, Aftonbladet reports.
The 25-year-old man had a dispute over land and money in Afghanistan with his cousin. He killed him with a rock.
He then fled to Iran where he lived with his family, but out of fear his relatives would take revenge, he decided to flee the country with his wife and two children.
Eventually ending up in Sweden, they applied for asylum in 2015. The Swedish Migration Agency rejected their application, but the Migration Court has now overturned the decision and granted the family permanent residence – because the court considers it credible that there is a threat to the 25-year-old due to the conflict with his relatives.
A Palestinian man was recently sentenced to prison and expulsion for attacking a synagogue in Gothenburg with firebombs, but the supreme court later suspended the decision claiming that there was reason to fear that his human rights could not be secured in Israel/ Palestine because of the nature of his crime.
Thus once again Sweden sends a clear message to criminals that crime is an advantage rather than a disadvantage if they seek asylum in the country.
