Unbelievable: Asylum seekers came to Sweden in private jet!
Ten asylum seekers hired a private jet to go to Sweden to seek asylum. Permanent residence and social security for life tempts increasingly more to make the trip to Sweden.
There has been much discussion about whether asylum seekers coming to Europe and Scandinavia really have a need for protection. In Sweden, many are automatically granted asylum just on the basis of nationality. This fact had ten asylum seekers going when they hired a private jet and flew to Sweden to seek asylum. Two of them are already granted permanent residence permit.
A private jet with asylum seekers has landed at Sturup airport outside Malmo, Fria Tider reported.
A Cessna 680 came from Beirut with ten asylum seekers on board. They have now been handed over to the Migration Board and two of them are already granted permanent residency as they are Syrian nationals.

It is the Egyptian airline Smart Aviation, which owns the plane. They offer exclusive business and air taxis trips. Two of the crew members, both in their 50s, are being questioned by police and has been arrested on suspicion of human trafficking. A Lebanese woman is also suspected of offenses.
