Swedish authorities to intensify border controls …extending to internal ports, airports


The police are extending internal border controls to include several airports and ports. The airports of Arlanda, Landvetter, Skavsta and Malmö will be covered as well as the ports of Ystad, Karlshamn and Karlskrona.

This decision has been made by government.

“The assessment now is that the threat image is somewhat different than before,” said Patrik Engström, Head of National Border Police Division at Noa, in a press release.

The decision gives the police a mandate to check travelers “in order to differentiate among travelers between asylum seekers, economic migrants as well as potential terrorists and other criminals.” – DailySweden
