The carelessness of Sweden's migration department may cost the country dearly as it could mean increasing numbers of ISIL infiltrators posing as migrants coming to the country, according to an article in the Swedish daily Aftonbladet by journalist and former refugee shelter employee Egor Putilov.
The issue is made worse by the fact that refugees coming to Sweden from Syria face an expedited interview process, limited to 1.5 hours, compared to 2.5 hours for refugees from other countries. The interview also does not focus on security issues such as whether the refugee is an ISIL member, but on whether the refugee's request is in accordance with the Geneva Convention on refugees.
Buzzfeed previously reported that ISIL has apparently smuggled fighters disguised as refugees to infiltrate European countries.
Calls for terrorism are also not unprecedented in Sweden. Michael Skramo, a Swedish convert to Islam who last year traveled to Syria to join ISIL, previously made calls on his Facebook to kill "infidels" and make bombs.
