Khulumani Supports Calls On The State To Honour Its International Obligations To Protect Refugees And Asylum-Seekers

June 20 was World Refugee Day. The situation of refugees and asylum-seekers in South Africa has been rendered even more difficult with the closure of the Refugee Reception Centres at Crown Mines, Johannesburg and at Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape. Further closures have been threatened.

Court orders requiring the re-opening of the centres in Johannesburg and Port Elizabeth have been ignored. The Department of Home Affairs stands guilty of a contempt of court.

Khulumani joins Lawyers for Human Rights and the member organisations of CoRMSA, the Consortium on Refugees and Migrants in South Africa, in their call on the South African state to provide effective and real protection to refugees and asylum-seekers in South Africa.

 

Many Khulumani families have been grateful for the protection of other African states of their spouses and children who sought refuge in their countries during apartheid.

 

Khulumani calls on government to honour their obligation to protect refugees and asylum-seekers in South Africa and to provide access to documentation to everyone living in South Africa without fear, favour or prejudice based on compliance with international and domestic obligations including the universality of human rights.
