The Iraqi family with two children aged 6 and 5 will meet in Tampere with a representative of the Red Cross at noon. The family was evicted from the Red Cross-managed Kemi asylum reception center after the Finnish Immigration Service said their asylum process was over and had to leave the country.

The father said that he was worried if his family would get the same treatment as in Kemi.

The city of Kemi turned its back on the family by granting only 10 days of room and board in two 5-day installments.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
