ALGIERS- The National Human Rights Council (CNDH) expressed its “satisfaction” at the repatriation conditions of Niger’s migrants, an operation for which the public authorities have mobilized a multidisciplinary team.
“CNDH which participated in the humanitarian caravan accompanying the repatriation of Niger’s migrants to their country of origin underlined its satisfaction on the course of this complex and exacting operation which lasted four days from Zeralda (Algiers) to Tamanrasset, through the provinces of Laghouat and Ghardaia and sub-province of In Salah,” said a communiqué of the Council.
CNDH participated in this operation for which the public authorities “mobilized a multidisciplinary team made up of doctors, teachers, social assistants and psychologists as well as material means made up of 11 buses, two trucks carrying foodstuffs and clothes and one truck of fuel to ensure the comfort and security of repatriated migrants.”
This operation was marked by the participation of other institutional non-institutional players, representatives of the written press and public and private, national and international radios and televisions in addition to representatives of the UN agencies accredited to Algiers in charge of the migratory issues in order to observe the conditions in which the repatriation operation of 355 migrants was conducted.
Pointing out that it is about “enquiring on the migrants’ accommodation conditions in the transit structures, notably vulnerable people”, CNDH said it “is aware of the complexity of these operations and their sensitiveness for the public authorities which spare no human or financial effort to better manage the migratory phenomenon in Algeria.”
