The Department of Home Affairs (DHA) is currently arresting asylum seekers and refugees who are going to renew their permits. This is purely an intimidation, so that people don’t renew their permits therefore become illegal and deported back to their countries. This is happening when people arrive at the centres.
The African Diaspora Forum (ADF) wants to address this issue.
Colleagues, if you know of anyone facing this situation, currently arrested, who is in police custody or at Lindela repatriation centre, please kindly send us the details.
Please send this information to our Hotline number
