Lebanese public security has denied exerting pressure on Syrian refugees to return to their country
BEIRUT, November 13 (Xinhua) – The Lebanese Public Security Directorate denied in a statement on Tuesday that Human Rights Watch reported that public security was putting pressure on Syrian refugees in Lebanon to return to their country.
The public security statement said it did not put pressure on Syrian refugees to return to Syria.
He added that all returning refugees from refugees had returned voluntarily either individually or in voluntary repatriation packages organized by the Directorate of Public Security in coordination with competent Syrian authorities, attended by UNHCR representatives who ensured that refugees were relocated voluntarily and volunteer.
A representative from Human Rights Watch said at a press conference that in Lebanon pressure was on Syrian refugees to return to their country ahead of time.
The organization said it believed there was direct pressure from Lebanese public security so that Syria returned to their area lacking electricity, water, protection and control to ensure that they did not experience violations.
The latest census of Syrians displaced in Lebanon through Lebanese public security shows that there are still 1.3 million Syrian refugees in Lebanon and that the number of people returning voluntarily to their country in Syria with public security facilities is approaching 87,000 displaced people.
