“Barnevernet” The Norwegian Child Protection Unit must stop splitting minority families in Norway!

Posted by African Press International on November 7, 2006

“Barnevernet”, The Norwegian Child Protection Unit, an official institution, in Norway splits many minority families in pretence that they are interested in safeguarding the interest of the children.

A number of cases where children have been taken away from families are painful to narrate. Some of the children end up isolated, discriminated against. In some cases, they have ended up turning to drugs and crime.

When the Child Protection Unit removes a child from a minority home, they normally place the child in a Norwegian home or an institution basically run by Norwegians.

When that happens, they forget that the child they are taking away from the biological parents has a culture that will not be paid attention to, in a purely Norwegian home. This deprives the children of a culture important for them when they grow  up.

Norwegian homes that accept to receive the child is paid almost half a million Norwegian kroner in one year to car for the child. This incentive encourages ethnic Norwegian homes to base their income on taking over children from minority families.

African Press has learnt that some of the Norwegian adults that the Protection Unit use resign from their normal jobs to take on this well-paying task.

    This is the letter the United Nations sent regarding the Norway childcare agency expressing serious concern regarding the whole system:

    And this is a sample norwegian website speaking of what is going on in the name of child protection in Norway:

    Thanks,

    So, Don’t Be Quiet At All.
