SAHRC Welcomes Refugee Ruling

The SAHRC welcomes a ruling compelling the Department of Home Affairs to re-open  a refugee reception office

The South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) has welcomed the Western Cape High Court's ruling that a refugee reception office (RRO) be re-opened by the Department of Home Affairs.

The SAHRC says it has been receiving complaints from asylum seekers on this issue and in September 2012 was approached by 80 asylum seekers, including children, seeking relief from actions of department of home affairs.

In the same vein, the People Against Suffering, Oppression and Poverty (PASSOP) says hundreds of asylum seekers had been unable to get documentation since June 2012 and lived in fear of being detained and deported to countries where their lives and freedom were at risk.
