‘It’s too cold’ Refugees would rather return home than face European winter

REFUGEES are abandoning their bids for asylum to return home after claiming Europe is too cold.


Almost 70 per cent of Iraqi asylum seekers have given up applications in Finland to go back to their war-torn country.

One Iraqi who decided to return said Finland did not live up to the expectations.

He said: “I don’t know what happens to me in Iraq, but here I will die mentally.”

Figures from the Nordic country’s immigration service revealed Finland processed 3,700 Iraqi asylum seeker decisions in 2015.

Almost 2,600 of the decisions have now “expired”, meaning the applicants have either cancelled the process or disappeared.

Juha Simila, head of asylum department at the Finnish Immigration Service, said applicants were disillusioned by the processing time.
