Sweden's Migration Board Approves Deportation of Radical Imams
Swedish police granted power to request for the deportation of 'security threats'
The Swedish Migration Board has approved the deportation of radical Imam Abo Raad after the Swedish security service Säpo issued an official request after arresting several Islamic leaders, according to reports.
Imam Abo Raad, who resided in Gävle, is one of two Imams listed for deportation after the decision by the Migration Board along with another man.
As part of the Act on Special Aliens Control, which grants Swedish police and security the power to request for the deportation for those they seem as 'security threats,' the three men where arrested, Sveriges Radio reports.
A Gävle mosque spokesperson said following the arrests, “it is very regrettable that Sweden takes such a serious decision to expel him,” adding that Raad may face persecution in his native Iraq or even face prison.
Abo Raad’s lawyer Alparslan Tügel declared that he would be filing an appeal saying, “The first reaction is of course that this is not the output we had hoped for. But we look forward with confidence to the next instance.”
Tügel reemphasized that the imam could face danger in n Iraq and that the situation for him and the case for him would make the deportation impossible to actually carry out.
A spokesman for Säpo said they would closely monitor the individuals who were unable to be deported.
Sweden has faced problems with radical Islamic extremists for many years as reports from the National Center for Terror Threat Assessment (NCT) noted that radical Islamic extremism was the number one threat to Swedish state security.

Last year, Sweden admitted it lost track of over 27,000 asylum seekers who failed to be granted citizenship and receiving expulsion orders from the country, 4,5000 of them were children.
While only this month, Neon Nettle reported that 90 percent of migrants from Morocco, who are claiming asylum in Sweden, are adults.
A large number of Moroccan nationals arrive in European countries claiming to be "unaccompanied minors."
For those arriving in Sweeden, however, it turns out that most of these claims are false, according to a report by Swedish broadcaster SVT.
Unaccompanied child migrants are far more likely to be granted asylum from the government and usually receive additional benefits such as free housing and education.
