The police are aware of a number of men circulating around refugee reception centers in Norway where newly arrived refugees are staying. They have intensified their efforts to prevent exploitation.
“We know that in large migration flows, when many people are on the run, the refugees are vulnerable to exploitation. This applies not only in relation to sexual abuse, but also other types of exploitation,” police director Benedicte Bjørnland told the newspaper VG.
She noted that the police are aware of a number of men circulating around reception centers where Ukrainian refugees are staying. According to Bjørnland, these are not just people who can commit sexual abuse but also human trafficking.
Therefore, the police have intensified their work on detecting and preventing exploitation, with increased control and stricter access to traffic hubs where refugees are staying.
