Conference hears migrant language testing worries UN’s refugee agency UNHCR says migrants’ claims of abuse are a worrying security issue UN’s refugee agency UNHCR says migrants’ claims of abuse are a worrying security issue Riot police use tear gas to disperse a group of migrants in Calais during a protest against the Jungle migrant camp near the Eurotunnel terminal near Calais on Friday. |AFP Photo PARIS (AFP) – Two migrants on Saturday were arrested after a week-long dispute over a language test which, the migrants say, made it 더킹카지노impossible for them to travel to the United Kingdom. The dispute over a test conducted by a public agency in the French port town of Calais escalated after 더킹카지노a British official ordered an official at the centre of the camp on Thursday to take part in the test. https://www.cifnet.it/products/cover-samsung-j5-2017-marvel-8custodia4cover3314 The tests were intended to confirm the ability to speak French and to assess the likelihood of being approved as a legal refugee by the UK. A British immigration official who attended the test was ordered to do so. The migrants’ claim was backed up when a migrant who was part of the group arrested by French riot police after their protest last week claimed that the test rendered him incapable of traveling to Britain, as was claimed by the UK government. https://www.cifnet.it/products/abstract-doodle-o0809-cover-iphone-7-iphone-8-1covers8samsung3624 A spokesman for the French interior ministry, Bernard Cazeneuve, said: “The migrants who were arrested were under suspicion of violence and v우리카지노iolence… https://www.cifnet.it/products/iphone-6-6s-plus-women-glamood-outlet-13custodia4iphone3796 They were taken into custody during a violent incident in which they broke the windows of French police vehicles.” Cazeneuve said the migrants were detained “without violence or violence being threatened.” The clash escalated with one member of the group claiming that he had been beaten up by police for refusing to take part in the test, although the police spokesman later clarified that the migrant had been not assaulted during the fight. The migrant has been placed in custody without charge, Cazeneuve added. https://www.custodia4cover.it/products/coque-custodia-cover-fundas-hoesjes-j3-j5-j6-s20-s10-s9-s8-s7-s6-s5-plus-edge-d23178-engine-audi-sports-1-samsung-galaxy-note-9-case The migrants have demanded the test be withdrawn immediately. “We have a right to be able to live and learn in the country we’ve come from. We’re not being treated as second-class citizens by the authorities,” said one. “We’re being discriminated against now. https://www.cifnet.it/products/carolina-panthers-x4457-cover-iphone-7-iphone-8-1covers8samsung13108 What this demonstrates is that the situation is not normal,” the migrant told AFP, without giving further details. “The state is not giving us the right to settle here. https://www.custodia4cover.it/products/custodia-samsung-young-s6310-1custodiasamsung9611 It’s not right,” he added, before being allowed to enter Britain.
