the Government and the authorities were not sufficiently prepared for the strain that the refugee situation in the autumn of 2015 meant. It writes the representatives of the national audit office on DN Debate.
the Authority will publish on Tuesday a review of how the government, the Swedish migration board and the relevant authorities handled the situation and how the readiness looked like. The national audit office argues that the Swedish migration board for several years, had increased its preparedness, but that the plan was not in practice.
"In October raised the Swedish migration board, their readiness substantially to include up to 16 000 asylum seekers in the week, but without that the plan contained some realistic measures", writes the Swedish national audit office also points out that it is noteworthy that the Authority for civil contingencies agency, MSB, has not taken up a large flight of refugees as a potential risk.
the Government and the government offices took their turn several decisions to manage the situation but most of the action had little effect on the urgency of the situation, which may have been due to the fact that one does not in advance had analyzed a similar scenario.
