S. Sudanese officials arrive to oversee repatriations

June 13, 2012 19:25

A delegation of officials from the South Sudan Interior Ministry arrived in Israel Wednesday morning to help oversee the deportation of South Sudanese citizens detained by immigration officials this week, the Foreign Ministry said Wednesday.

The delegation is purely bureaucratic and is in no way political in nature, a Foreign Ministry official said, adding that the officials will help process the repatriation of their citizens and will also examine if any of those slated for deportation could be, in their estimation, eligible to receive refugee status in Israel.
