Fear has handcuffed the Mölndal government in Sweden, where they have refused to allow a memorial service for the murdered asylum worker, the young Swede, Alexandra Mezher.
Swedish media SVT reports that the co-workers of the victim wished to honour the memory of 22-year-old Alexandra Mezher who was stabbed to death by an underage Somali male on the 25th of January. The case provoked an international uproar which has led many to question the Swedish government’s handling of the migrant crisis.
The request for a memorial comes after Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven visited the centre for underage migrants in Örnsköldsvik and said “This is a tragedy. You should be able to feel safe at work and the children and young people who arrive in Sweden alone will be able to feel safe,” as he talked with police, trade unions and municipal officials.
So why does the municipal government in Mölnda cave in fear to the immigrants? How can this population, invited to resettle in Sweden, now control through fear, the very government that opened wide the gates? Why do the citizens suffer at the hands of their own government, in order to placate the refugees within their borders?
