Anders Lindstam, coordinator for counter-våldbejakande extremism in Borås municipality, we, in common with several municipalities that it was a rewarding day. In the municipalities where it already has received several returner over the last few years, it was considered, however, that many questions remain to be ironed out.
According to Christina Kiernan, coordinator in Stockholm, for example, is it still shrouded in mystery if the security service will provide the municipalities any exact information about when, who and if anyone actually comes back.
" Is it someone need to meet up at the airport. It applies especially to the children. They could otherwise ”disappear”, especially if their families think social services will take the children away from them. But we have not yet understood if the secret Police will give us information so that we can meet them, " says Christina Kiernan.
family members who on his own volition, goes to Syria to try to download the home children, the problem is even greater:
" We have to presume that everyone who comes back needs care and support. It must be ensured that they do not carry infectious diseases and that the children vaccinated. Will they get here, completely outside the system, there is a great risk that we may not be aware of them until it is too late. But the question was not at all during the day, " she says.
Fredrik Hallström, deputy head of the security service, stressed that the municipalities 'readiness to receive the återvändarna also may affect the future security risks:
" this is far from just about återvändarna. The long-term threat exists in the fertile ground that exists here in Sweden, and in which people are at risk to be radicalised. Where will the municipalities have an important role in prevention work.
Christina Kiernan exactly what is expected of the municipalities of:
– In practice, not the social services interact at the individual level when it comes to crime prevention when dealing with adults. For that, there is in the new, sekretessbrytande rules for us to be able to share information or observations we make to the police.
to further increase the municipalities ' readiness to receive any returner is that the CVE will visit the the concerned municipalities individually. the work has already started.
