Gov't. Official: Israel Sending 'Asylum Seekers' to Uganda

A senior government source revealed to the newspaper Haaretz that Israel has secretly started to send the illegal African 'asylum seekers' to Uganda, and although there has been no confirmation of such yet, that last month dozens asked to be transferred with several already having left.

The Immigration Authorities have refused to comment, while a spokesman for the Ministry of Interior and spokesman for Prison Services told Haaretz that this was not in their jurisdiction, and then proceeded to refer them to the Immigration Authority.
