An employee of the Swedish Church recently tried to stop an asylum seeker's participation in SVT's reporting on women at Spenshult's asylum accommodation. In SVT's secret recording, the employee of the Swedish Church says that asylum seekers "should shut up", that "all refugees who are Arabs" live with honor culture and that the Migration Board should not be criticized in the media.



The Church of Sweden is one of several organizations that regularly visit Spenshult. After contact with an employee of the church, an asylum-seeking interviewee chose to drop his participation in SVT's reporting on women who experience housing as unsafe.
