Norway to put ankle monitor on asylum seekers

Norway to put ankle monitor on asylum seekers
Norway continues to make it harder for asylum seekers to choose Norway, and with great success. Figures from last year show that immigration to Norway has not been so low in 20 years, and tougher measures and requirements are partly the reason.

However, many of those who have come to Norway, like in other European countries, came without any papers and have for unknown reasons vanished.

Last year 5482 asylum seekers left their asylum center without notice. The Government therefore now considers the use of ankle monitors to gain control, reports DB.

About half of these have subsequently returned or been unaccounted for, but at the end of November, still 2,743 asylum seekers were without a known address, writes Aftenposten.

Now it is considered whether the use of electronic monitoring may be the solution to apply to asylum seekers who are feared will evade deportation. Electronic control such as an ankle monitor is already used as an option in the correctional system.

- The ministry will look into whether it is possible to use electronic monitoring as an alternative to incarceration. And in addition, we will check whether this may also be used in cases where there are no imprisonment, says communications consultant Andreas Bondevik of the Ministry of Justice.

The Police Directorate is now asked to consider what kind of electronic control that may be applicable to asylum seekers, if there are alternatives, what such control tools will cost, and the need for law changes to put them to use.
