PST chief warns against the consequences of immigration from Muslim countries
PST Chief Benedicte Bjørnland fear that increased immigration, especially from Muslim countries, can provide fertile ground for radicalization, increased conflicts in society and greater extreme-right.
The warning came at the Folk och defend national conference in Sweden on Monday where the chief of the Police Security Service was one of the presenters.
– A strong increase in immigration, especially from Muslim countries, can also lead to other challenges in the long term. When it comes a high number of asylum seekers to communities, this could have unfortunate consequences, said Bjørnland from the pulpit, according to TV 2 .
She warned about increased levels of conflict, violence and the emergence of the extreme-right:
– One can not take for granted that new population groups automatically adapts to the norms and regulations in the Norwegian society. New populations are not homogeneous, and they can bring their ethnic or religious differences from their homeland, said Bjørnland.
– If you eventually get the emergence of parallel societies, radicalization and extremist environments, so we have a challenge as security service, warned PST boss.
In Sweden, the threat level on the second highest level. The Swedish SAPO chief says the challenges are significant.
– The Islamist groups have grown significantly over the past five years, and the tension increases between the various ethnic groups said Anders Thornberg, head of the Swedish Security Service.
