Sweden expects to expel up to 80,000 asylum-seekers whose applications have been rejected, the country’s interior minister has announced.
Anders Ygeman said that charter aircraft would be used to deport the migrants over several years.
“We are talking about 60,000 people but the number could climb to 80,000,” Mr Ygeman told Swedish media.
Some 163,000 migrants applied for asylum in Sweden in 2015, the highest per capita number in Europe.
Of the approximately 58,800 cases processed last year, 55% were accepted.
Earlier on Wednesday, Greece’s government responded to allegations in a draft European Commission report that it had “seriously neglected” its obligations to control the external frontier of Europe’s passport-free Schengen zone.
