90 Per Cent of Moroccan ‘Minor’ Migrants in Sweden Are Adults

A new report claims just ten per cent of Moroccan “minor” migrants who have come to Sweden in recent years were actually minors, the rest adults.

Around 1,800 single Moroccan men have applied for asylum in Sweden in the last seven years but following closer cooperation with the government of Morocco the number has fallen to 55 so far this year, Swedish broadcaster SVT reports. 

Christian Frödén, group manager at the border police in Stockholm praised the cooperation with the Moroccan police who have allowed their Swedish counterparts access to fingerprint databases saying, “When we find their identity they leave the country and move on to other cities in Europe such as Barcelona or Paris. 

They do not want the police to know who they are because then they can be punished and be expelled to Morocco.”

The figures show the vast majority of those claiming to be children — that status comes with additional rights and protections — are indeed adults.
