In addition, the ministry is also willing to resettle unspecified numbers of gay, lesbian, transgender, bisexual, queer who had been referred by a third-party aid organization.
Though the specific date of taking in the people is not clear, it is said that the judges along with their family members will be resettled in 2022.
