Iraqi asylum seeker family leave Kemi travel to Helsinki and end up in Tampere

by , under Enrique Tessieri and Wael Che

Migrant Tales received a message from the Iraqi family in Kemi, which had only received 10 days of room an board after being forced to leave the asylum reception with his wife and two children aged 6 and 5.

The family first went to Helsinki and then to Tampere.

Asylum seekers (from left to right): the father, son, daughter, and wife.

The message was sent Wednesday afternoon:

After making a call to him, we discovered that he went with his family to Helsinki and then to Tampere, where he is staying with some friends.

We at Migrant Tales are especially concerned about the fate of the family’s children. How is it possible that the Red Cross and the Finnish Immigration Service can throw families with children in the street?

This is shameful and unacceptable.

This is a developing story and I will report when I have more information.

    You mean you report like this. They have a change to go home funded by finns. They arent asylum seekers because their stories were checked and found weak. They are failed asylum seekers. They are tourist at most now.
