70 illegal immigrants sent back to Asia
- Government has sent back 70 Asians who were trafficked into the country under the pretext that they were being taken to South Africa for better jobs.
- Mr Moses Binoga, the coordinator of Anti-Human trafficking, said the last group of 10 Asians was flown back home yesterday.
However, the suspect who trafficked them is still on the run.
- Binoga said after the group was rescued, another 47 Asians who were also trafficked into the country reported to an embassy in Uganda and to the police.
- Police say the 47 Asians were in transit to South Africa.
When they arrived at Entebbe International Airport, they were received by a man of Indian origin, and booked in one hotel.
The man later disappeared and cut off communication with them.
They run out of cash and were stranded to a point of having only a meal a day.
