Some 301 migrants from Haiti who entered Turkey illegally were returned home to their country by private plane.
According to the statement made by Turkey's Directorate of Migration Management on Sunday, the "Assisted Voluntary Return and Reintegration of Irregular Migrants in Turkey" project is being carried out in partnership with the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and the Directorate of Migration Management.
A special flight was organized to ensure the voluntary return of 301 Haitians who were irregular migrants in Turkey and do not have a representative in the country.
This is the first time for the Turkish authorities to arrange for a trans-oceanic private flight to repatriate illegal immigrants.
