No information on the clans of origin of the majority of the teachers in Djibouti could be found among the sources consulted by the Research Directorate.

However, in a 15 February 1999 e-mail letter to Research Directorate, the former Secretary General of the union of Djiboutian teachers of the second degree (Syndicat des enseignants djiboutiens du second degré-SYNESED) stated that teachers are organized in [unofficial translation] "free and independent" unions, which comprise members from all djiboutian society. She added that [unofficial translation], " unionists' tribe of origin is not the cause of harassment: all union members, especially the most active ones are active are targeted by the régime".

Please see attachment for the copy of the SYNESED former secretary general E-mail letter.

This Response is not, and does not purport to be, conclusive as to the merit of any particular claim to refugee status or asylum.
