Almost two hundred foreign nationals nabbed just outside the UN Refugee Agency for trespassing are due to appear in court today.
The people were arrested on Friday when the police arrived at the headquarters in Pretoria after receiving numerous noise complaints from the local residents.
A crowd of foreigners, — in total, about 500 men and women — have been camping on the parking lot there for weeks asking the officials to transport them back to home states. According to the reports, all of them feared for their lives due to severe xenophobia in South Africa.
The law-enforcers had to use water cannons to disperse the protesters who were not willing to leave the scene.
Most of the arrested individuals have since been transported to the Lindela Repatriation Centre in Krugersdorp awaiting their hearings.
