Swedish Refugee Blues

Hat tip Fria Tider

As if the wave of migrants, asylum-seekers, refugees and pan-handlers hasn't brought enough problems to European countries, many of the shelters set up to house these people wind up going up in flames. Many of the tenants take out their grievances by setting fire to the facilities. Here we have one such case in Sweden. The below article is from the Swedish blog, Fria Tider. The translation is mine.

Asylum seeker tried to  set fire to his asylum home

A 20-year-old man in Kramfors has been arrested on suspicion of arson since he set fire to an asylum residence, writes Allehanda. The man himself should have been living at the home.

It was at 1 pm on Thursday that a fire started indoors at an asylum residence in the municipality of Kramsfors.

The fire was able to be put out and later a 20-year-old man was arrested suspected of having set the fire at the home.

"It is a man who is arrested suspected of igniting fire on an (housing) accommodation by lighting fire to a curtain, initially said prosecutor Jens Göransson to Allehanda.

According to SVT News Västerbotten , the man himself was living at the asylum home and after being arrested for probable reasons suspected of arson. The fire involved danger.

The police had several interrogations with the man and during Friday a detention hearing was held at Ångermanlands District Court.

The 20-year-old must have acknowledged that he set fire to the  asylum housing but does not consider it to be classified as arson.

No person was injured in the fire.
The suspect man is now arrested.

This is one of the many cases in Sweden where asylum seekers themselves set fire to their asylum residence.
