Palestinian Refugees in Sudan at Risk of Refoulement

Palestinian Refugees in Sudan at Risk of Refoulement

Palestinian and Syrian migrants seeking refuge in Sudan have expressed deep concern about their ambiguous fate after the Sudanese police spokesman announced the government’s decision to reconsider the status of foreigners who acquired citizenship in the country while ousted President Omar AlBashir had been in office. A bundle of preconditions has been set by the local authorities to determine the migrant’s eligibility for citizenship, a move which reportedly aims at keeping work permits in check.

A migrant from Syria in Khartoum said the Sudanese authorities ruled that refugees from Syria should have their legal situation worked out within a 30-day time-limit.

Nearly 100 Palestinian families from Syria have been subjected to abject living conditions in Sudan. Low wages, high rates of unemployment, and socio-economic marginalization have made life unbearable for Palestinians in Sudan, forcing dozens of refugees to beg in the streets in order to feed their starved families.

Dozens of families who fled to Libya, in a life-threatening journey via the Sudanese desert, attempting to head for Europe onboard the “death boats”, have fallen prey to arbitrary abductions, exploitation, and looting by human traffickers and sea gangsters.

Palestinians from Syria in Sudan are scattered across Khartoum, Khartoum Bahri (North), and Omdurman.
