Sweden injects asylum seekers during deportations

Abdul Ghafoor

Radio Sweden has reported on returnees being injected before deportation to on their destination routes.  Reports suggest; most of the returnees who resists deportation are injected to stop resistance. This issue was raised on Radio Sweden program called Callibar.

After Radio Sweden highlighted the issue in one of the programs called Callibar. They say; now the issue of using force and injecting returnees is taken to the court to investigate this inhumane behavior by the Swedish border police.

I working with returnees agree with the issue raised in Radio Sweden . I have witnessed many cases when the returnees has reported to me about them being injected when they have tried to resist deportation. Mahil is one of the cases i reported about in the earlier stage of my work with returnees. He was returned back to Kabul on 19th May 2013 and was unconscious for the following two days when i was regularly visiting him.

She was dragged to the plane as animals and sent back to Afghanistan on a charter flight with many other returnees.

Use of force, torture and injecting returnees is now being a common tool for the Swedish police while deporting returnees back to their countries. Therefor, Sweden as being one of the countries that leads human rights morals and values, must interrogate the inhumane act of abuse the Swedish border police and put an end to use of force, and force deportation to countries like Afghanistan or elsewhere.
