Refugees who have committed a number of sexual offences may be deported as well as banned from entering the country, according to the Supreme Administrative Court.
 
The Supreme Administrative Court issued the ruling after reviewing a judgment of an administrative court on a decision of deportation of an Afghan refugee who was convicted for sexual abuse.
 
A man who arrived in the country from Afghanistan as an underage was found guilty of aggravated child sexual abuse.
 
The Finnish Immigration Service cancelled the man’s refugee status and ordered the man to be deported.
 
However, the Administrative Court of Helsinki overturned the decision.
 
The Supreme Administrative Court, however, ruled that the man could be viewed in the light of crime as a danger to public order and safety.
 
According to the Supreme Administrative Court, the man did not have solid ties to the country.
 
Furthermore, the court stated that the security situation of the man’s home region had changed, and there was no reason to fear the threat of inhuman treatment due to his ethnic background.
