Finland expects to expel 20,000 failed asylum seekers: govt

Helsinki: Finland expects to expel around 20,000 of the 32,000 asylum seekers it received in 2015, the country’s interior ministry said on today.

“In principle we speak of about two-thirds, meaning approximately 65 per cent of the 32,000 will get a negative decision (to their asylum application),” Paivi Nerg, the ministry’s administrative director told AFP.
