Justice Minister Jøran Kallmyr (Frp) wants to introduce an anonymous tip system to expose asylum seekers who people believe are cheating.

“We are now preparing to give anonymous tip-lines to the Directorate of Immigration (UDI) about foreigners who, for example, have stated their identity incorrectly, have traveled back to their home country on holiday, or have done other things that violate the Immigration Act,” says Kallmyr NRK.

It is intended that tipers can go to the UDI’s website and submit tips digitally, both with full identity and anonymously. Until now, it has only been possible to tip about possible violations by telephone, email or regular letter.

One of the reasons for Kallmyr’s desire for such a tip scheme is an NRK report on Eritreans celebrating the Eritrean regime in Norway. Following the reports, the government has asked UDI to review the Eritrea cases in particular.

In the report, Norwegian Eritreans celebrated that it was 25 years since the national service was introduced. The National Service is a duty service for all citizens in either the military or civilian positions, and is the main reason many Eritreans have fled the country.

Kallmyr believes that what emerged in the report may help to undermine confidence in the asylum system.

    Norway is one of the countries where Eritreans who claim to be asylum seekers but are supporters of the regime exploit the asylum system. These violators of asylum claimed that they were imprisoned, tortured, shot at, condemned to endless military conscription (this is comparable to slavery because no one gets a salary except a pocket money of Ten USD), denied freedom of expression etc etc. and once they get asylum they go behind the door and travel to Eritrea through a third country. The regime collaborates with them and does not stamp their passport. For this they pay 2% tax of their income. They also dance at the festivals the regime prepares every year and worst of all they harass opposition groups and insult them by saying traitors, deserters etc.So, it is high time Norway scrutinizes them and we are prepared to give any important information about them.
