Prime Minister Juha Sipilä (Centre) revealed during his weekly interview on YLE Radio Suomi on Sunday that he will not be able to open his home in Kempele to asylum seekers. Prime Minister Juha Sipilä (Centre) has stumbled into the global media limelight after announcing that he will not be able to fulfil his promise to open his home in Kempele, Northern Ostrobothnia, to a family of asylum seekers.

The BBC and the Guardian, for example, reported on his reversal earlier this week.

Sipilä revealed during his weekly interview on YLE Radio Suomi on Sunday that the idea to accommodate a family of asylum seekers in his home in Kempele has been put on hold on grounds of security concerns. He received worldwide media attention in September for announcing that he would offer his home to asylum seekers.

The Prime Minister has been accused of encouraging migrants to head to Finland with his announcement by both his fellow lawmakers and members of the public, the Guardian writes. The BBC, meanwhile, reports extensively on a growing anti-immigrant sentiment in Northern Europe and estimates that the attitudinal shift is the main reason for the reversal of Sipilä.

Sipilä stressed to YLE that his offer will be back on the table if the security situation improves.
