International Organization for Migration invited to investigate situation with Africans in Antigua



The Cabinet has extended an invitation to the United Nations High Commission for Refugee (UNHCR) and the International Organization for Migration (IOM) to investigate the situation of migrants in Antigua and Barbuda, specifically the West Africans who arrived here three months ago.

Their investigation will likely reveal who wants to return and who prefers to stay.

The UNHCR and the IOM will make recommendations to the Government following their investigation.

  1. the main opposition marching against “human trafficking”

    i dont know of that because information coming from Africans who i talk to say they were not coming to antigua they were passing through

  2. With ALP involvement, the inquiry is pointless. The author of the article has already indicated that it is not going to be an inquiry based on establishing the truth regarding how those fraudsters got into Antigua in the first place, nor does it sounds like the inquiry will demonstrate the validity of claims of persecution.

    Why should they be given the choice to stay or to leave. They should all be given support to leave.

  3. You invited them. Did they give a yes or no answer. Why don’t use the investing money to help the people?.please ask sir Ron Saunders how them SAY things nar go.
