For this, the former minister of Interior, Noka said that he has deposited today in parliament the request to obtain information on the measures that have been taken, on the welcoming capacities and on the standards offered for their treatment.
Mr. Noka also requests the exact number of the people who have arrived, how many are expected to arrive, the deadlines, whether they have the refugee status, whether their movements have been registered, etc.
