20,000 expatriates re-registered: Fayyaz

Up until to-date 20,000 expatriates have re-registered under the registration programme implemented to legalise illegal immigrants, said Minister of Economic Development, Fayyaz Ismail. He requested not to mislead the public by giving false information.

Fayyaz said that in some media it is reported that the re-registered number is 2000.

He further added that the damage caused by providing false information will not be recovered even after the information is corrected later.
