UNHCR Ends Refugee Status for Angolans

Angolans and Liberians living abroad will no longer be regarded as refugees as of 1 July 2012

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) says Angolans and Liberian refugees who live abroad are no longer regarded as refugees.

UNHCR spokesperson, Adrian Edwards, points out that, their refugee status came to an end on 30 June 2012 because both countries ‘have enjoyed many years of peace and stability after bitter civil wars’.

Edwards says that the agency is working with the governments of origin and of asylum to find solutions for refugees who wish either to return home or to remain in their host countries.
