Call to Rethink of Operation Fiyela

Lawyers for Human Rights has secured a court order in the Johannesburg High Court halting the deportation of those held at Lindela repatriation centre for two weeks

Human rights activists, Lawyers for Human Rights (LHR), has secured a court order in the Johannesburg High Court halting the deportation of those held at Lindela repatriation centre for two weeks.

After LHR secured a court order allowing its lawyers access to their clients late‚ Johannesburg police station commanders refused to comply with it over the weekend.

Meanwhile, People’s Coalition against Xenophobia’s Stephen Faulkner points out that, “To equate crime with the presence of undocumented people in our society is not tackling xenophobia‚ it is legitimising xenophobia.”
