Niger nationals: All measures taken for smooth repatriation
All necessary measures have been taken for the repatriation, in respect of human dignity, of nationals from Niger who entered Algeria illegally, the chairwoman of the Algerian Red Crescent (ARC), Saida Benhabiles, said Monday.
Physicians, psychologists and ARC workers will accompany Niger's nationals, to be carried in comfortable buses to the reception centre of Tamanrasset (1970-km south of Algiers) and subsequently transferred to Niger with the collaboration of their country's authorities, Benhabiles told APS..
During their trip to their country, they will receive the most appropriate care, including "comfortable buses," "good health care" and "healthy food," she underlined.
Vulnerable people, who cannot make the trip by road, including pregnant women, will travel by air.
Ill people will not be repatriated until they receive an appropriate healthcare, she said, adding that the operation was carried out in coordination with Niger's Red Crescent and authorities.
Mentioning the reception centres in forty provinces to receive nationals from Niger, Benhabiles said they will be outfitted with all the necessary conveniences allowing their guests to have a comfortable stay before being repatriated to their country.
