Govt starts registration of foreign nationals to deter cross-border crime
SOUTH SUDAN: The government has started registration of all foreign nationals living in the country in a bid to deter cross-border crime.
“We are asking foreigners to come to the designated centres for screening,” said John Akot Maluth, head of the Nationality and Immigration department in the Ministry of Interior.
Over two million South Sudanese are living as refugees in neighbouring countries since conflict erupted in December 2013. South Sudan's warring parties signed the revitalised peace agreement in September, ushering in normalcy and fresh hopes of peace.
