UN Special Rapporteur on Migrants Commends Senegal (News)

Jorge Bustamante, the UN Special Rapporteur on the human rights of migrants, praised Senegal after a visit.  The number of African migrants who leave the Senegalese coast by boat for Europe and the number who perish during the attempt have fallen sharply during the first half of this year.

“Bustamante welcomed Senegal’s efforts to spotlight the issue of irregular migration and, through the implementation of bilateral and multilateral accords, to protect the rights of people who try to migrate along dangerous international routes, such as by sea.”
