Immigration Service warns landlords not to rent out to illegal immigrants

The Ghana Immigration Service (GIS) has warned that it would prosecute landlords and property owners who rent out their facilities to foreigners without proper immigration documents.

If we come to your premises and such people are there [without documentation] then you have contravened the law,” he said.
