"On the Migration board's custody in Åstorp need lawyers who visit their clients nowadays go to be locked up."
"Unacceptable, consider the lawyer Fredrik Bülow. He refuses to be locked in and has JO notified the Swedish migration board."
"He intends henceforth to decline the mission for the inmates of the repository, to have only telephone contact, he does not see as an option – it is contrary to good advokatsed."
"– the Swedish migration board actually puts the client's right to a representative out of the game by demanding incarceration of the lawyer, he says to TT."
"Fredrik Bülow has through the years had hundreds of clients at the repository in Åstorp. Until recently, he had a key card, so that he has been able to get out of the room if a threatening situation should arise."
"It happens that the clients feel physically bad, or are under the influence of drugs and the knowledge that it is possible to get out of the room is crucial for that he should feel one hundred percent safe."
"– It is psychological, " he explains."
"the Swedish migration board shall issue an opinion to the parliamentary ombudsman (JO) and don't want to answer questions before it is done, but the work's press office writes in an email to the TT public to assistants and government officials who visit the repository in Åstorp be equipped with panic alarms."
"the Bar association secretary general Anne Ramberg think it is good that the issue is addressed."
"– What it is to be feared is that this issue will be brought to the fore even more, because now we are in a situation where the detention facilities and Correctional service is under incredible pressure, " she says to TT."
"the Risk is that overcrowding and a strain on the staff that there will not be enough resources to at each visit to have a guard standing outside the door when a public counsel talk with the client, she says."
"Can become problematic."
"the Incarceration of the lawyers appearing on their sides, according to Anne Ramberg, who believes that an assessment must be made on a case-by-case basis. She is not sufficiently versed in the details to comment specifically on the situation in the repository in Åstorp, she emphasises."
"– Very often makes it so, if you feel worry, to ensure that the lawyer is sitting closest to the door, that the door is open and there is a guard outside who can not intercept the call."
"It is absolutely crucial that the client can talk in privacy with their representatives, she emphasises, but also that the lawyer can feel safe. If more lawyers react as Fredrik Bülow, and to refrain from the mission for the inmates of the repository can be problematic, she believes."
"– It is serious if it would be so that all of the lawyers draws this conclusion, then, will these people not have any representation, " says Anne Ramberg."
"According to the Bar association should besöksrutinerna of the Migration board's detention to be in tune with what the case is in the Correctional institutions and prisons. The routines are regulated in a special handbook."
"If it is deemed necessary to maintain security, can the defender according to this user manual locked into a visiting rooms along with the prisoner. But such action may only be done if the defender accepts this and alarms provided."
"In some cases, prison and Probation service assess that lock-in cannot take place for security reasons. When must the visit be arranged in a different way, for example with the control of the staff outside the room. But the conversation between the prisoner and the defender may not be able to be intercepted by someone else."
