Every third-country refugee accepted to EU territory has the right under the Family Reunification Directive to bring all his relatives later on. Demonstration of family ties is considered to be humiliating and therefore the refugee can invite whoever he/she wants and it does not have to be proven.
Finnish officials have taken a child into custody because her mother slapped her with a T-shirt, says Finnish human rights activist Johan Bäckman.
Recurring disinformation. The statement comes from well-known Pro-Kremlin propagandist Johan Bäckman. In Finland, a custody can be done if serious shortcomings are detected in the child’s care or other circumstances that may endanger the child’s health or development. The risk must be serious. Taking into custody is only possible if open care support measures are not suitable, feasible or sufficient to guarantee that the child’s interests are protected. Further debunking by the Insider and Echo Moskvy. The child is a Finnish citizen and the mother has a Russian citizenship.
