Mozambique to repatriate 444 illegal Asian immigrants

Mozambique will soon repatriate a group of 444 illegal Asian immigrants.



Maputo: Mozambique will soon repatriate a
group of 444 illegal Asian immigrants, including 11 Indians,
who were sent back from South Africa after they entered the
country illegally, a police spokesman said Tuesday.

Neighbouring South Africa sent the people back in
buses on Saturday after they entered the country with tourist
visas for Mozambique, said Maputo provincial police spokesman
Joao Machava.

The group originates from four countries. There are
268 Bangladeshis, 124 Pakistanis, 11 Indians and 41 Chinese,
Machava told .

"They will leave group by group in the next few days,"
he said, adding that the 11 Indians would be the first to
leave on February 18.

In January police detained 93 Bangladeshis in the
Mozambican capital, shortly after they entered the country.

A South African farmer also discovered 96 Bangladeshis
hiding on his farm just across the border with Mozambique.
Promises of a better life in South Africa, the largest
economy on the continent, attract scores of immigrants yearly,
mostly from Africa.
