On the other hand The evil Corruption affects affects even Refugees who forgotten in India for the past three decades and they living under Corrupted systems and now the Innocent displaced societies what is more they losing their valuable lives In Indian streets and it is unacceptable thing also it is at all against the Human Rights violation act in 1951 in Geneva-Switzerland.
As we are the Central Somali Community in India since 2000, we are also concerned with the future of our Youth, since they are jobless they may end up doing illegal activities and breaking the law and seek corruption services as they trying to find ways to make a living. Since there is no UNHCR assistance at all.From now we request the Indian Government to follow up this issue of UNHCR cutting down all assistance to the Somali Community to avoid further violation of laws of Human Rights on Indian soil. It is the responsibility of the host Government to ensure that a voice is heard on behaves of the refugees after they have voiced their concerns. We request that action be taken against those who are corrupt officials at the UNHCR, so that this kind of issue comes to an end no only in India but all over the World.
