“Nassat” employees have received visas
Farting now wants to use a charter plane to leave the country with about 140 dogs and 60 cats, his Afghan staff and their family. According to Farting, the British government on Monday issued visas to all employees of the Now Now Chad Association and their family members. There are a total of 68 people.
