Refugees from Africa and the Middle East control ever bigger areas in Sweden. Swedish police chief Dan Eliasson begged for help on national TV: the police can no more ensure law and order and feel left behind by the politicians. The number of no go areas in Sweden has risen from 55 to 61.

Summary of Disinformation

Refugees from Africa and the Middle East control ever bigger areas in Sweden. Swedish police chief Dan Eliasson begged for help on national TV: the police can no more ensure law and order and feel left behind by the politicians. The number of no go areas in Sweden has risen from 55 to 61.

Disproof

Recurring disinformation. There are no "no-go-zones" in Sweden. In a report published in June 2017, the Swedish Police Authority identified 61 areas around the country that have become increasingly marred by crime, social unrest and insecurity. Of these 61 areas, 23 are considered to be particularly vulnerable. While the Police Authority has stated that working in these vulnerable areas is often difficult, it is not the case that police do not go to them or that Swedish law does not apply there. On the contrary, more, not less, effort from the Police Authority are put into these specific areas. bit.ly/2kRGskC
