Thursday, 20 April, 2017 - 09:15

Attorney Morgan Moseki has written a letter to the Attorney General demanding the release of hundreds of asylum seekers from Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo and Namibia who are detained at Francistown Center for Illegal Immigrants.

Moseki told Gabz Fm news that he has given the Attorney General 14 days to have released the asylum seekers or else he will take the government to court.

He revealed that government is ill-treating the asylum seekers as their children are denied access to education.

Moseki noted that most of the asylum seekers who are more than 500 have been detained for more than 7 years after the government rejected their applications to be refugees.

He added that the refugee's act stipulates that an asylum seeker cannot be detained for more than 28 days.
