GIS to implement Immigration Amendment Act
The Ghana Immigration Service, GIS, says it will fully implement the Immigration Amendment Act 2012, Act 848 passed last year to deal with criminals who engage in migrant smuggling and human trafficking across the country's borders.
The Service says it will leave no stone unturned in its mandate to reduce the increasing number of people who indulge in these practices.
Speaking at a Seminar organised for the media on “Countering Human Smuggling and other Irregular Migration” in Accra, Assistant Director of Immigration and Upper West Regional Commander, Laud Affrifah, said Ghana is recognised as a country of origin, transit and destination for these migrants and smugglers and this calls for an elaborate and preventive measures to curb the menace.
