UNSC plans to visit Bangladesh too

UNSC plans to visit Bangladesh too”

Saying Myanmar was still unsafe for the Rohingyas, Rizvi stated that more global pressure was needed to ensure safe return of the refugees back to their country. However, many started emigrating and made perilous sea journeys to various countries as the camps in Bangladesh are reportedly overcrowded.

While the origin of the Rohingya has not be determined, Krabi police chief Col. Pattanachak Chakrabhan said most of the boat's occupants likely came from Myanmar's Rakhine state and had planned to take refuge in Malaysia. Thai authorities confirmed that they sent the boat back out to sea.

Myanmar's military has forced some 700,000 Rohingya Muslims out of Rakhine and across the border to Bangladesh since August, in a brutal crackdown which United States and UN officials say amounts to ethnic cleansing of the minority.

He said that he hoped the Council would be able to visit Rakhine state, the epicentre of the Rohingya crisis from where an estimated 700,000 refugees have fled to neighbouring Bangladesh.

Two ships and four boats were mobilized off Langkawi island, in northwestern Malaysia, after officials received reports that a fishing boat with 56 people had stopped off the west coast of Thailand early Sunday due to bad weather, First Admiral Haji Rozali Mohammad, the maritime director for the northern Malaysian region, said in a statement.

"They had no connections with human trafficking syndicates", he said.

In Bangkok on Monday, human rights advocacy group Fortify Rights urged Thailand and Malaysia to provide protection for Rohingya refugees in accordance with global law and standards.

Myanmarese authorities have lured dozens of mainly Buddhist Bangladeshi tribal families to cross the border and resettle on land abandoned by Rohingya people, officials said on Monday.

Adisorn said Thai villagers supplied them with food and fuel before sending them on their way.

Many of the Rohingya ensnared in the 2015 boat crisis ended up in Muslim-majority Malaysia and Indonesia because Thailand stuck to a policy of not accepting the vessels.

While describing Bangladesh's achievements, including its becoming eligible for graduating to a developing country from a least developed one, Ali narrated how the possibility of outstanding economic and social development tempo of Bangladesh may face challenge by the Rohingya influx.

Thai authorities push Rohingya refugees back out to sea, putting lives at risk (BANGKOK, April 2, 2018) - The governments of Thailand and Malaysia should cooperate to provide protection to Rohingya refugees in accordance with worldwide law and standards, Fortify Rights said today.

Around 400 families have already been relocated from low-lying areas and the UNHCR has begun engineering work to protect refugee camps from the region's intense monsoon season and tropical cyclones.

"In line with the UNHCR study on vulnerability of the Rohingya living at the hills in Ukhia, we have identified some 25,000 most vulnerable people facing the threat of landslide, flooding and cyclones", Chowdhury told BenarNews.
