Botswana Commended Over Asylum Seekers

NGOs commend the Botswana government for declaring that a group of Eritrean soccer players seeking political asylum in the country should go through the normal application process

A group of Botswana non-governmental organisations (NGOs) have commended the government for declaring that a group of Eritrean soccer players seeking political asylum in the country should go through the normal application process.
 
In a joint press statement, the NGOs pointed out that they are convinced that the Botswana government is committed to international, regional and national human rights standards in accordance with the country’s membership of the African Union and the United Nations.
 
The comments came after Defence, Justice and Security Minister, Shaw Kgathi, earlier said the Eritrean team members who were seeking asylum should go back to their country.
