100 Stranded Migrants Repatriated From Senegal

One hundred stranded Gambian migrants that were intercepted at sea by the Senegalese naval forces on Thursday were repatriated back to the country. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, International Cooperation and Gambians Abroad, emphasized.The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, International Cooperation and Gambians Abroad,disclosed that they are anticipating the return of one hundred and sixty- five (165) Gambian migrants from Libya through an operation to be conducted by the In- ternational Organization for Migration (IOM) on the 2nd, November. Subsequently, on 7th November and 14th No- vember, another one hundred and ten (110) migrants each will be evacuated from Niger. “We would like to emphasize that embarking on such journeys carries significant risks. Re- grettably, some stranded migrants who are currently in Algeria and Niger particularly during the Tunisian crisis were offered evacuation opportunities twice but declined at the eleventh hour, despite having been granted ETCs and exit visas. “It is important to note that the challenges we face are not unique to only Gambian migrants, as many other nationals are yet to be evacuated. Evacuations are coordinated by IOM, fol- lowing established protocols and procedures, which can at times necessitate a patient ap- proach and understanding of the process.” The Ministry states.
