MONROVIA, LIBERIA-The Liberia Refugee Repatriation and Resettlement Commission (LRRRC), in collaboration with the UNHCR, has begun an assessment tour in four refugee concentrated counties in North and South-eastern Liberia.
The counties include Nimba, Grand Gedeh, Maryland and River Gee.
According to LRRRC Deputy Executive Director for Operations, Alphonso Wallace, the tour is aimed at verifying claims of Ivoirian refugees applying for exemption for local integration.
Director Wallace said:” Huge Ivoirian refugees residing in the four counties have opted to remain in Liberia under international protection.”
He noted that following the verification process, those qualified will be locally integrated.
The LRRRC Deputy Executive Director added that the process is expected to be concluded at the end of this month.
