Minister of Justice and Immigration Jøran Kallmyr (Frp) will consider making it more difficult for Norwegian men to bring women from abroad to Norway.
In order to prevent foreign women from being exploited by Norwegian men, the government will consider specific measures that will help the relevant group to wait long before they can fetch new women from abroad, NRK reports.
– “We need to look at several things, but what may be relevant is a form of quarantine,” says Kallmyr.
The statement comes after it became known that several shelters find that Norwegian men deliver their foreign wives at the door when they “finish with them”.
– “Too many persons experience a life of physical and mental violence when they move in with their Norwegian husbands. After a period they are thrown out,” says Svein Gjerseth, head of the Telemark crisis center.
About ten women come to the crisis center in Skien every year, who say they have been thrown out of the house. Many of them are from Thailand and the Philippines.
2,818 people came to Norway to live with their Norwegian or Nordic partners In the period January to September this year, figures from the Directorate of Immigration show.
