Norway's government has taken its campaign to scare away potential asylum seekers onto Facebook, launching a new page, 'Stricter Asylum regulations in Norway', on Friday.
In its first post on Friday afternoon, the page trumpeted the government's plans to:
- slash benefits for asylum seekers by 20 percent;
- increase the wait for permanent residency from three to five years;
- send people home if situations improve in their home countries;
- and work with the Iraqi and Eritrean authorities to send asylum seekers back to those countries.
