The Interior Ministry announced on Thursday that it would suspend the activities of the Oz immigration authority unit for 24 hours in order to allow Christian illegal aliens to celebrate Christmas in peace. The decision followed criticism by human rights group who accused the unit of going too far in its efforts to prosecute foreign workers and of not respecting people's right to worship.
