CSRSIR preps final ‘solution’ to Bedoun issue, eye legal center
The Central System for Remedying Status of Illegal Residents (CSRSIR) earlier this month started preparing final solutions to the Bedoun issue which had been suspended for more than 40 years. The solutions include determining the legal center of each Bedoun resident and specifying it in the reference card given to them, reports Aljarida daily.
According to informed sources, the new cards currently being issued to Bedoun residents include their legal status. Those with first-grade or second-grade relatives of known nationalities will have the word “Related” inscribed in their cards, which means they have known origins.
The system based this procedure on the official documents belonging to the father, grandfather or brother such as passport, the census of the country from which the people under this category came from or the recruitment card of their country of origin.
The word “Observation” will be inscribed for those with security restrictions registered against them by the State Security or the Intelligence and Security Department of Ministry of Defense. These restrictions include communication and cooperation for purposes of the invasion, and participation in demonstrations including by the head of the family and first-grade relatives.
The sources revealed that CSRSIR, as part of the final solutions, has suspended the disbursement of visiting cards to those included in the 1980 and 1985 censuses.
They indicated that the owners of files under this category have been notified on the need to modify their status, adding that the cards will not be issued to them unless acknowledgement statements are signed.
The sources stressed that CSRSIR is in the process of preparing the final report after which it will be submitted to the government so that appropriate decisions on a caseby-case basis can be taken.
They affirmed that Bedoun residents without any restrictions will be issued with cards with no special inscriptions for observations, which means their files are good.
The Cabinet issued a decision on the transfer of Manpower and Government Restructuring Program (MGRP) from the Civil Service Commission (CSC) to the Public Authority for Manpower (PAM), reports Al-Anba daily.
Article Two of the decision mandates the ministers to implement this decision and work on it from the date of its publication in the official gazette.
