Madiet said the suspects had their passports and visas expired since 2016 and have been hiding from the authorities.

Madiet revealed that, all are Bangladesh nationals working at some hotels in Juba.

He said after a silent search, the suspects were apprehended on Monday.

“The information officers got six aliens from Bangladesh whose passports visas and aliens registration have expired since 2016. That mean they have been in the county without document”, Lt. Col. Madiet revealed.
