Sweden extends border controls with Germany, Denmark by 3 Months

Sweden

Sweden has prolonged internal border controls with Germany and Denmark for a further three months over security concerns, the Swedish Justice Ministry said on November 8.

The ministry cited a persisting threat to domestic security and similar decisions by other EU members. In August, Sweden said that EU’s porous frontiers allowed potential terrorists to slip into the country.

Internal border checks were brought back in 2015, with EU’s permission, to get a grip on migrant inflows as they traveled north. Controls were last extended until November 11.
