    Man married his mother

    An Iraqi refugee with residence permission in Norway married his own mother, in a desperate attempt to bring the rest of his family to the country. It worked, inititally, but now both he and his mother face two years in prison.
    The bizarre story, reported in newspaper Romerikes Blad, started to unfold last winter when local police began investigating the case, several years after the man first came to Norway as an asylum seeker.

    The man in question initially had been granted permanent residence permission in Norway for humanitarian reasons.He settled in Lillestrøm, northeast of Oslo, and then quickly filed an application with the immigration agency UDI (Utlendingsdirektoratet) to bring the rest of his family to Norway under terms of the country's family reunification policy.

    He told the authorities that he had a wife in Iraq, and that she had two children from an earlier marriage.

    Suspicions arose
    The authorities accepted the man's claims and the documentation he provided, and granted all three permanent residence permission as well. They came to Norway, and all four lived in a flat in Lillestrøm for several years before local police began to be suspicious, mostly because of the apparent age difference between the man and woman.

    "It just didn't seem right," inspector Jan Eirik Thomassen of the Romerike Police District told Romerikes Blad. The man had said he was 33, and his wife was 44. Police went to court to get permission for DNA testing.

    Results showed that the couple actually were mother and son. Her two other children were the man's siblings.

    The man ended up making a full confession when confronted with the DNA results. Both he and his mother have now been charged with giving false information to the authorities, which can result in two years in prison and deportation.

    Sad.

    There was a story here in the states about a man who packed his wife in a suitcase in order to bring her into this country. When he arrived he opened the zipper a bit and realized his wife had died and left the case behind.
    Customs opened the case later to find a dead woman and half eaten banannas in the case. They tracked the man down. I don't know what happened after that but he said he could not leave her behind in Iran and they were willing to risk everything to bring her in.

    Then there was a case in England a few years back. A truck arrives and was not allowed in the country until it was randomly searched. Inside were dozens of dead Chinese. They ranged in all ages and had taken this truck from someplace in Europe before ferrying to the UK. They figured they had been dead in the truck for days having suffored heat stroke. They were crowded like sardines with no lights, no food or watcher and had to stand.

    Then another story of a man climbing into the wheel well of an aircraft. When the plane lowered the landing gear out he fell , already dead. He was trying another way into the states.

    The stories of what people will do for freedom go on and on...so all you anti Americans out there....realize what you have is more than any bank account and fancy clothing can give you....freedom is everything!
