THE Parliamentary Committee on Foreign Affairs, Defence and Security has asked the government to scrutinize thoroughly refugees’ background before granting them citizenship status.

Presenting its annual report on Wednesday, the committee cautioned that there were some dangerous indicators from some of the refugees, who had been granted citizenship.

“There’s a pressing need for the government to review the status of the refugees who have been granted citizenship in accordance with international laws in order to tackle emerging security challenges,” stated the Committee Chairman, Mr Salum Rehani.

“There’s also significance for the government to deploy those refugees in separate areas in order to avoid security challenges that might happen in their current areas of living,” he added.
