When the regime in Eritrea [and Eritrea itself] this month marks 25 years [of independence], many Norwegian-Eritreans are expected to travel to Eritrea to celebrate. Those who travel are taking the risk of punishment, warns [the weird] immigration minister Sylvi Listhaug.
In May, thousands of Eritreans from all over Europe are expected to travel to Asmara, the Eritrean capital, NRK reported. They go to celebrate the 25th anniversary of a regime that the UN believes is one of the worst in terms of human rights [fu*k the UN].
Woldab Feshatzion, leader of the Eritrean Community Association, believes part of the Norwegian-Eritreans will travel down to Asmara celebrate [their country’s 25 years of independence silver jubilee].
I think that some Norwegian-Eritreans who have been granted protection in Norway, will go down. I do not wonder, he says.
Eritreans who arrived as refugees and not Norwegian citizens, are not allowed to go to their home country. It is contrary to the criteria for being granted asylum.
It is clear that once say they have fled a regime and seeking protection in Norway, then traveling down to salute the same regime, then there is reason to look into this, says Listhaug.
Norwegian immigration authorities will monitor which Norwegian Eritreans [those who got citizenship or those economic migrants who claim protection] traveling.
This will be the information that will be interesting for the immigration authorities to look into. So what I expect of course that they do, says Listhaug.
