Mission to Re-vet Red-Coded Cases. The mission to re-vet former Liberian refugees who were at risk of statelessness, as a result of the Government of Liberia red-coding them on nationality grounds, continues. The team was in Ghana from 31 October 2016 to 25 November, where 251 persons out of the 364 red coded were processed with an additional 38 dependents making a total of 289 processed cases in that country. 5 persons are still maintained as red coded as they were unable to show their ties to Liberia. The Bureau of Immigration and naturalization (BIN) will provide written reasons for the denial of Liberian citizenship. The team had previously visited Gambia, Guinea, Nigeria and Senegal. 369 cases out of the total 910 cases have been processed and a further 146 dependents were processed bringing the total processed to 515.
