The Scalabrini Centre is going back to court to demand that an official be appointed to oversee the reopening of the Cape Town Refugee Reception Office, says a Cape Argus report.

‘Scalabrini Centre is disappointed and dismayed that there is still no fully functioning Refugee Reception Office in Cape Town. In September 2017, a full Bench of the SCA issued an order declaring the decision to close the Cape Town Refugee Reception Office unlawful,’ said the centre’s Sally Gandar.

The SCA directed Home Affairs to reopen and maintain a fully functional Refugee Reception Office in the Cape Town metro by the end of March 2018.

But to date, there has been no indication as to where or when the centre would open its doors.
