According to information received by fax
from the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) Resident
Representative in N'Djamena, neither Gendarmerie nor Bol are formal
designations (2 Dec. 1998). However, the representative's letter
states that in common speech in N'Djamena this is a popular way of
referring to the quarter within which the Gendarmerie camp is
situated. The proper name for this quarter is "Béguinage".
The representative's fax confirms that there is no quarter in
N'Djamena referred to as "Bol", rather that there exists a quarter
named "Bololo" near "Béguinage".
This Response was prepared after
researching publicly accessible information currently available to
the Research Directorate within time constraints. This Response is
not, and does not purport to be, conclusive as to the merit of any
particular claim to refugee status or asylum.
