GLAN, Sarangani (June 6, 2017) – Some 108 Persons of Indonesian Descent (PIDs) residing in Glan for several years wait for their turn to receive their birth certificates in ceremonies at Glan Municipal Hall on May 30 under the auspices of the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). By receiving their free birth certificates and having their citizenships confirmed by representatives from the Governments of the Philippines and Indonesia, the PIDs will finally be able to enjoy the full extent of their rights. With over 2,400 PIDs registered in Glan, the municipality has one of the largest populations of PIDs in the country. (Jake Narte /SARANGANI INFORMATION OFFICE)
