Members of a popular Iraqi Facebook page have been posting messages relating to their experiences as migrants in Finland. In one cellphone video posted on the page three Iraqi men advise their compatriots in Arabic:
"If you are thinking about coming here, seriously, don't! We are already considering coming back to Iraq. We regret coming here. We were wrong! We paid huge amounts for nothing," Ali, Kadar and Ali are heard saying in the video. "Coming here was a mistake."
The trio also bemoans a lack of clothing, high prices and small meal sizes in reception centres in addition to bad employment opportunities.
