Swedish border police: 65 Moroccan asylum seekers used false documents

65 Moroccans have applied for asylum in Sweden with false documents, reports the Swedish news website Svenska Dagbladet.

False identities are a big problem with Moroccan asylum seekers in Sweden, says the site and adds that, on the basis of a memo issued by the border police, of the 77 Moroccan nationals who have arrived recently in Sweden, 65 false documentation shows. Moreover, from the 50 who claimed they were minors, there were only 2 minor.

In the memo States that the border police in Sweden for the first time the identities of the persons can compare with fingerprints that leave the person in the home country, reports Moroccoworldnews. The memo also points out that many asylum seekers come to the border without documentation and the police false names and birth dates.

"Although it is a small example and a specific nationality, and despite the limitations, it is the first time we can check the alleged identities and ages, thanks to the system of fingerprints in Morocco," wrote police head Patrik Engström in the memo.

Engström added that false identification a problem is because migrants could commit crimes under someone else's name.
