Groups Urge Govt to Tackle Xenophobia

Rights groups call on the government to reinforce their human rights-based legal framework in order to prevent and redress human rights violations against migrants

Lawyers for Human Rights (LHR) and the International Federation for Human Rights are calling on the government to reinforce their human rights-based legal framework in order to prevent and redress human rights violations against migrants.

LHR spokesperson, Patricia Erasmus, points out that there are too many misconceptions about foreigners, adding that, "It does not take into account the circumstances under which people document themselves in South Africa.”

Erasmus states that apart from a very restrictive immigration legislative framework, which makes the opportunities to become very limited, “There are severe backlogs and a lot of inefficiencies in the determination procedure.”
