The idea of ​​a demarcated area for refugees awaiting deportation is absurd and is out of the question, according to a member of the Left-Green Party. Yesterday, the Minister of Justice referred to such an implementation abroad.

The parliamentary session began this morning with a debate on the work of the parliament, where Bjarkey Olsen Gunnarsdttir, Member of Parliament for the Left-Green Party, said that arrangements for the accommodation of refugees, which Áslaug Arna Sigurbjornsdottir, Minister of Justice, referred to yesterday, are out of the question.

In an unprepared question time yesterday, Birgir Thorarinsson, Member of Parliament for the Center Party, asked the Minister about monitoring people who are to be deported. Áslaug said that the work procedures of the National Commissioner of Police’s support department were being examined.


“In many of the countries around us, this is done in such a way that the parties are in a certain area after they receive, for example, no from both levels of government, so that this can be done more easily and it does not happen that the parties are lost in the community. , “Said Áslaug Arna yesterday.

“What is in question is nothing but refugee camps or prisons and it is not possible to set such upon the part of the parliamentary party of the Left Greens,” said Bjarkey Olsen.

She pointed out that the Minister had referred to the need for a change in the law to implement this. Such an issue would not be on the Minister’s parliamentary register.

“And although the parliamentary register is often updated with regard to the situation in society, the position of the Left Greens would not change if such an issue appeared there.”

“Because this is a disgusting idea and it is out of the question,” said Bjarkey Olsen.
