Bribery Allegations Rock Sweden's Migration Board

The Swedish Migration Board has called in the police to help investigate an alleged residence permit bribery scandal. The investigation follows a Dagens Nyheter (DN) newspaper report about a 20-year-old immigrant from Afghanistan who claims he paid a Migration Board (Migrationsverket) employee 40,000 kronor ($6,750) after the employee promised to procure a Swedish residence permit for him.
