Several Somalis lose Norwegian citizenship

Several ethnic Somalis who came to Norway in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s lost their citizenships after suspected ID fraud.

The Directorate of Immigration (UDI) has over the last two years been working with a group of over a hundred ethnic Somalis, and the agency has concluded that several of them are not from Somalia, but from Djibouti or some of the other neighboring countries, writes the newspaper Klassekampen.
About half  the people have Norwegian citizenship, whilst the rest have other residence permits. Now, several of them have been told that their permits are no longer valid.
The newspaper writes about Mahad Abib Mahamud, who came alone to Norway at age 14 in year 2000. An anonymous tip led to that he has  now been given until 20 May to leave Norway. He believes that the anonymous tip was sent by political opponents, and he calls for better source criticism by UDI, who have not received a verification of  Mahamoud’s identity from the authorities in Djibouti.
– We have considered the information about his trip to Norway, his language skills and had interviews with family and his ex-wife, investigated his travels to Djibouti and his network of contacts  there, looked at the internet and telephone records and currency transfers, says department chief Georg Magne Rønnevig to the newspaper.
In Somalia there is a  lack of  public records of its citizens. Therefore,  Somali papers are not given any decisive weight by the Immigration Appeals committee.

    Fantastic news.
    This should have done earlier. Go for them all.
    Then start for other same type of countries.
    You guys can pick up Indians to fill up those vacant positions afterwards, we at least don’t harm others.

    • Stfu you st*pid hat*r. Nobody likes those hairy indians

    • you are a racist and selfish …… SHAME ON YOU A** HOLE

    • so i guess rape is not in the category of “harming others” to you guys.
      every country has it’s bad apples. you can criticize us if you want to, but don’t sit there and write “we don’t harm others”.
      we are getting enough hate and bigotry from all sorts of right wing extremists, we don’t need it from other refugees/asylum seekers.

    • Look who’s talking , little desi cunt-

    Hair is good, what can I do if some guys can’t grow it, we are helpless, sorry.
    Rape in India, mostly done by infiltrated citizens of Bangladesh or Pakistan or people influenced by them or same community and the same goes for terrorism, we should also kick them out. It’s all politics.
    I can’t be a racist as my skin is dark.

    And yes, some guys have proved with example by their language that what I have said earlier, is right.
