About 300 illegal migrants, mostly Bangladeshis, are feared dead after they jumped from a boat and tried to swim ashore in India¢s remote Andaman islands, the Indian coast guard said on Sunday. A senior coast guard official said they had rescued 88 people from a small boat near Little Andaman island on Saturday.(The Newage)

Another 11 men were found on nearby Sandy Point island, said SP Sharma, commander of the coast guard for the Andaman region, adding that about 300 men were still missing.

¡Around 300 of them reportedly jumped into the sea hoping to swim across to the shore,¢ Sharma told reporters in Port Blair.

¡While all of them are feared dead or missing, search operations are still ongoing,¢ he said.

A survivor told officials there had been 412 men, aged between 18 and 60, on the boat, which had little food or water and only a plastic sheet for a sail.

Sharma said the man told the police seven others had died at sea and their bodies were dumped overboard.

Preliminary investigations suggested the men had left Bangladesh bound for Malaysia in six motorised boats about 45 days ago. At some point on their journey, the men had changed vessels, a coast guard statement said.

One survivor, identified as Mohammad Ismail Arafat, said he and others had paid a Bangladeshi agent for promised jobs.

¡We were left to the mercy of God … after drifting for 10-15 days when finally we saw a lighthouse, many jumped into the water,¢ the statement quoted him as saying.

Coast guard vessels were still combing the area and the police were searching nearby islands for survivors.

Indian authorities said on Monday they still hope to find survivors, although the navy said it had recovered two more bodies.

Two Indian navy ships have joined coastguard vessels searching for the missing men, officials said.

¡We are looking for them in all possible places near the south of Little Andaman as we think there could be more survivors,¢ the Andamans defence spokesman, Mannu Virk, said in Port Blair.

The Andaman and Nicobar Islands lie about 1,200 km off India¢s east coast.

In Dhaka, the Bangladesh Sangbad Sangstha reports: The foreign adviser, Iftekhar Ahmed Chowdhury, said Bangladesh had sent letters to embassies of India, Myanmar and Sri Lanka for taking initiatives for the rescue of the victims while issued a general appeal to other neighbouring countries for any possible supports in this regard.

¡We are seeking more details on the reported incident,¢ said Chowdhury, who is also in charge of the ministry of expatriates¢ welfare and overseas employment, also expressing his deep shock at the deaths.

Japan to Accept 30 Burmese Refugees from Thailand


source from Irrawaddy news, 19 Dec 2008,

Japan will accept about 30 Burmese nationals from among the more than one hundred thousand now sheltering in refugee camps in Thailand sometime after the start of the 2010 fiscal year, according to reports.

The Kyodo news agency reported that representatives from 11 Japanese government agencies, including the ministries of justice and foreign affairs, held a meeting on Friday at the prime minister’s office to work out the details of the resettlement program, such as reception facilities for the Burmese refugees.

Under the program, the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees will compile a list of eligible refugees, while Japanese officials will interview applicants from among those listed.

Japan will be the first country in Asia to accept refugees under the program, Japanese officials were reported as saying.

It is a rare move for a country known for keeping its gates tightly closed to asylum seekers. The decision to accept the refugees may help to deflect criticism of Japan for what many international observers call its overly strict assessment of asylum cases.

There is also growing pressure from within Japan, where a growing number of foreign nationals, many in the country illegally, are applying for refugee status after years of shying away from an assessment process that has overwhelmingly rejected asylum requests in the past.

Asylum seekers to Japan will likely exceed 1,450 this year, nearly double the number of the previous year, according to the Japan Association for Refugees. The previous record for applications was 954, set in 2006.

Burmese nationals make up one of the largest groups applying for refugee status in Japan, and the number has continued to increase since the junta’s crackdown on large-scale protests last year, the Japan Times newspaper reported.

Burma One of the Worst Crises in the World: MSF


source from Irrawaddy news, 22 Dec 2008,

Military-ruled Burma is hosting one of the world’s worst humanitarian and medical emergencies, alongside the Democratic Republic of Congo, Somalia, Iraq, Sudan and Pakistan, according to a Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) report on Monday.

But whereas massive forced civilian displacements, violence and unmet medical needs were identified as causes of crises in many nations, MSF singled out Burma and Zimbabwe as having humanitarian emergencies in 2008 due to government neglect.

In its annual list of “Top Ten” humanitarian crises, the Geneva-based organization, which won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1999, stated: “In places such as Myanmar [Burma] and Zimbabwe—where governments fail to make health care a priority or view NGO interventions with suspicion—humanitarian organizations are either limited in the type of assistance they can provide or are left to deal with overwhelming health crises on their own.”

MSF added that hundreds of thousands of people in Burma are needlessly dying due to a severe lack of HIV/AIDS treatment as the Burmese government “does far too little to help its own people.”

The organization reported two specific humanitarian disasters in the country which it termed “critical”—the Cyclone Nargis disaster, which killed an estimated 130,000 people, and the HIV/AIDS problem, which was responsible for around 25,000 Burmese lives in 2007 alone.

“Governed by a military regime since 1962 and enduring low-intensity conflict in certain areas, the disaster was the latest blow to a people largely forgotten by the outside world,” MSF stated.

“Sadly the struggle to get an appropriate level of assistance for Myanmar’s most vulnerable people is one that extends throughout the country,” it added.

MSF said an estimated 75,000 people in Burma urgently need antiretroviral therapy to treat HIV/ AIDS, but less than 20 percent of those can get access to it.

“EVERYTHING IN UNHCR”


researcher James,

By regardless of the different plight, while frontier quarters paved to overwhelm a tempo-status in the host, the various violations took place in the part of refugees’ lives, and the equal treatment of the right to eligible for resettlement process is yet to be met.

 

The frontier UNHCR was doing little by neglecting its mandate to tackle longstanding Rohingya refugees by refusing under UN protection. It makes false impression, devastation, like UNHCR was not doing its jobs. Its process for Rohingya refugees is being same results in long time ago and now, it is not respecting the current situation. Therefore nothing was done except frustrations.

 

And actively accessing migrants for refugee status by issuing UNHCR ID card, and processing through relocation to destination country. Certainly, it makes hard to understand the situation of the refugees.

 

UNHCR particularly against its mandate, mission and violates its right to protect the same refugees in the same manner. It leads ultimately the intentional violates the human rights of the refugees. However, Rohingya is the most oppressed group in Burma and they can’t enjoy like others and they are not recognized like others.

 

In the other hand, US president George W. Bush had seek to provide assistant by changing its restrictions relevant to material supported groups. But it has yet to reflect for unfortunate Rohingya refugees. It is against towards American’s compassion, tolerance and humanity as the largest resettlement country. It means that all of restrictions are targeting to vulnerable Rohingya refugees.

 

Beside, resettlement countries replied that UNHCR itself can be considered in the context of resettlement quota. Our countries accept refugees regardless of race or religion and also serious in helping UNHCR. But, they are not determiners of the refugees.

 

Moreover, in the meeting between UNHCR and host government: “All of refugees may are set to return home following a peace deal between the government and rebel there”.

 

While UNHCR has lack to approach a truly Universal Convention’s proposal that the refugees (who were forced to leave) faced penalizing as illegal and other violations, can the status be sure through international obligation are met? Instead, we are facing illogical informing without any logical reason as :

 

UNHCR’s illogical thesis;

Non-Rohingya refugees are likely to be resettled in European countries, as Rohingyas are Muslims and there are Christians.

Chin community is very active and they got a strong network team.

Some numbers of resettlement affects concerned by the causes of 9-11 post.

We are doing our utmost to protect and assistant genuine refugees.

They are closed to Malaysia, the process would be soon.

Resettlement is always determined by resettlement countries, not by UNHCR.
We are unable to breach our office policy.

Rohingya refugees had not claimed resettlement, before.

There is some a great hope in the marked of the first major political change in 50 years and much hope Rohingya refugees. Something going to be changed for Rohingya.

 

But, do you think in the principle of resettlement process required to have a good net work team? Then, never be happen that if the process of local integration would be overwhelmed, and the need in signature of process;

All Rohingya refugee detainees should be release unconditionally from detention center.

Various arrests made by enforcement authority may not apply on Rohingya refugees unless committed the crimes.

The fundamental needs of medication, schooling, traveling to others, and others obligations should be applied equally.

 

Beside of that process, whether local integration is widely use as resettlement or not, the rest of un-affair Rohingya refugees in Malaysia should be passed to any 3rd country if they had reasons for no condition or not closed , in order to ensure their obligation. Due to home country rulers denied them and had announced that :

 1) In Nov 2003,.. Malaysia Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Alber had been concerned about Rohingyas but Myanmar Government is not willing to accept and Embassy of Myanmar Counselor U Khin Maung Lynn said that Rohingya is not among from Ethnic groups and infected from Bangladesh in 1970s.

2) Burma citizenship law denied citizenship to member of Muslim minority in Arkan State, generally known as “Rohingya”. (according to a join statement release by six independent human rights expert on 04 April 2007, NST).

Have you see some welcome words in the following articles for refugees?

We have to think firstly that how long the host can allow illegals by hosting. Thus, the host followed its rules of clarification of illegals and had having announcement continuously as follows;

In the announcement by Enforcement Director Dr. Ishak, “Illegal immigrants (included recognized refugees or asylum seeker under embark by UNHCR) would be subjected to arresting, (jail including whipping), detention or deportation”.(Source from Stars News, P-22, 16 Jan 2007)

 

Malaysia has no signatory to any agreement concerning refugees which mean do not recognized UNHCR asylum seekers or refugees.” “Malaysia is like other United Nations Member Countries, do not recognized UNHCR’s power.” (Source from NST, P-2, 02 Feb 2007)

 

We are happy in if the UNHCR here had their own camp, they provide shelter, funding.. and promise to repatriate the refugees.” (Source from malaysiakini, at 09:18 am, 15 March 2007.)

 

Refugees have become a perennial problem for us, anybody who comes into the country without proper documentation will be consider illegal, we have more than our fair share, they should be relocate to a third country, the fact is we are not signatory to 1951 or 1967 Refugees Conventions, we have called the Agency, US came to see, where they can absorb, they will..”(source from NST, P-8, 18 April 2007)

 

Kota Kinabalu: “Sabah has rejected a federal proposal to issue permanent resident status to thousands of Filipino refugees (who claimed as victims of civil war in the Philippines in the late 1960s), in the state.”

Foreign Minister said, “we won’t recognize refugees,.. a view to escape hard-ship in their home country”

(source from NST, in Nov 2007)

(when some of political officer or consultant from the various embassies approached for refugees’ issues)

 

Auxiliary Police Unit (Rela) director Zaidon Asmuni said, “If talking about human rights, can’t talk about security. Illegal migrants are enemy no.2, No.1 is drug.”

(source from multimedia in an interview on Dec 2007, http://www.iht.com and others)

 

Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar said, “ for illegal immigrants, we have to deported over 100,000 since 2000. Such problems existed in Peninsular Malaysia with the Rohingya issue. Previously, we discussed with the United States who accept a few thousand Rohingya to their country. Malaysia hoped to discuss with other countries to help take in the stateless people. We understand the fears of the local people.”

(source from http://thestar.com.my, 20 June 2008)

 

Imm-13 permit, it does not entitle them to become a PR or citizen. No country or state would like to see their population demography change in such a short time from the admission of illegals. For who comes in illegally, we have to deport them. That’s all. What kind of punishment can we give? If enforcement officers don enforce, all the enforcement officers can be charged in court for not performing their duty as prescribed under the law.”

Illegal Migrant Workers Arrested; Others Hide in Jungle


source from Irrawaddy news, 12 Dec 2008,

An estimated 100 Burmese illegal migrant workers in Mae Sot are being arrested daily by Thai authorities and hundreds have fled to hide in the jungle, according to a labor rights group in Mae Sot.  

Mae Sot, a border town opposite Myawaddy, Burma, is home to an estimated 100,000 Burmese migrant workers, most of them illegal. About 40,000 are legally registered, according to the Yaung Chi Oo Workers Association.

Moe Swe, the head of the Yaung Chi Oo Workers Association, said between 100 and 150 Burmese migrant workers have been arrested each day since early December. Others have left the city to hide in the jungle, he said.

“They hide in the jungle for two or three days, and if the situation improves, they return to work,” Moe Swe said. “If they hear that there will be a raid, they flee again

“Now, illegal migrant workers are not able to work everyday, and it is hard for them to make a living,” he said.

Recently, about 3,000 Burmese workers were laid off due to the global financial crisis and an estimated 500 returned home, according to the labor rights group. 

Many migrant workers only earn enough money to provide for their daily food. If they are arrested and sent back to Burma, they usually re-enter Thailand. 

Thai authorities regularly launch crackdowns on illegal migrant workers in Mae Sot at the end of each year.  

There are about 1.5 million legal and illegal Burmese migrant workers in Thailand.

“Abuses In UNHCR-Malaysia”


 By Researcher James,

Have you been heard about abuses in UNHCR?

We well accept that abuses is the weapon of the vulgar and more important may be the will to prepare. As every uplift-ment of humanitarians must be guided under the right path of humanism.

But here different story is humanitarian officers were committing human rights violations in its premises, today. However, UNHCR is acting a main actor for refugees. It is come to believe that such officers are practicing inhumane rules as living as in the  Asean region. Then, we heard easily of their denying of the accusations.

As we see in the photo, the recognized refugee with green shirt, who came from deportation to trafficker agent, was surrounded by a group of UNHCR’s security. According to the order by senior officer, he was strangled and lifted to outside by security forces for his seeking assistance from UNHCR as a deported refugee. He cried-out and said that if UN agency violate it laws and rules, there is terrible and a great devastation in both human rights and dignity.

A few hours later, poor refugees including sicks, children and women were forced to leave from the outside area of UNHCR office by gendarm holder securities. Hard to understand that who give them the power. Some were also pulled the nape and some were strangled. And somewhere, everyone can find security-man pulled the women’s  hand.

Even though refugees waiting along the street where is not UNHCR premises, to hire car to back, security forces following by FST senior officer had driving them through to reach federal highway by treating gendarm. Beside, some UNHCR card holders were allowing to sit beside of the different compound’s wall for their approaching for assistance.

A taxi driver said, “I known that there are many ethnicities and the most oppressed group is Rohingya in Burma. But I had seen mostly non-Rohingyas are very bright as sometime, I had lifted them. If polices stopped my taxi, they also showed passports instead of UNHCR card. And they also paid respect to polices as the same manner. Once I asked for how they know how to respect, they replied that they had been trained to liberate their land. The card is being useless but it is just try to get card as transit pass to be resettled in 3rd country”.

Testimony by Community from Selayang,

UNHCR recognized a Burmese refugee Mr. Abdu Majid was paralyzed for receiving treatment of modern tortures by custody.

Mr. Abdu Majid, from the front (who hold the play-card of "No Human Rights In Burma")

 

UNHCR recognized a Burmese refugee Mr. Abdu Majid, (who holding the banner worded with No Human Rights in Burma), with 4 children under 12 years old and his wife, were provided shelter under UNHCR-GBV(Gender Based Violence) team in Rawang area, Kuala Selangor since one year ago, after he was stabbed by knife and robbed and then life under the threat for his reported to police. There is no UNHCR camp in Malaysia, or no shelter accorded in international recognized. But he had no choice after all police stations had surrendered for his security and police had proposed to seek from UNHCR.

I will tell you about how the shelter and food received by Abdu Majid that the place was shared by Malay–Indian Christian welfare. No matter you are how vulnerable, Mr. Abdu Majid had been worked in plantation with unpaid wages but food and shelter were without charges. The room is narrow and shared with others, separated from wife and children. A few days later children had suffered sick and leprosy, cyst, diarrhea and emasculation.

Causally, he and his family had been passed scarcely however the custody manages as modern day slavery, perhaps providing a safe environment through relocation to 3rd country. UNHCR’s protection officer had well known the treatment of who suffered life security in the host region while the host authorities surrendered, but remaining unpracticed. During working in six months, half of his body was paralyzed and very disability now. Although his wife seeks hospitalization of Mr. Abdul Majid, it was denied by concern quarter.

“Chance To Seek Refuge In USA”


source from: “U.S. Department of State”
Date: Thu, 4 Dec 2008 10:50:03 -0600 (CST)
Subject: Democracy, Human Rights, Refugees: Fraud in the Refugee Family Reunification (Priority Three) Program

Fact Sheet
Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration
Washington, DC

Fraud in the Refugee Family Reunification (Priority Three) Program
Q: What is this program?
A: The State Department’s Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration (PRM) is responsible for coordinating and managing the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP). A critical part of this responsibility is determining which individuals or groups from among the millions of refugees worldwide will be able to apply for refugee resettlement in the United States.

There are currently three priorities or categories of cases that have access to the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program. Priority One and Two applicants are granted access to the program through an individual referral by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), a U.S. Embassy or qualified NGO, or by membership in a group of cases designated as having access to the program by virtue of their circumstances and apparent need for resettlement. Priority Three, or P-3, refers to individual cases from eligible nationalities who are granted access for purposes of family reunification with certain legal residents in the United States.

Qualifying for access to the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program is only the first step in the process, however. Officials of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) conduct an interview with all refugee applicants regardless of priority, to determine if the individual is a refugee under U.S. law, is not firmly resettled in another country and is otherwise admissible to the United States.

Access to the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program based on family ties has been available to various nationalities since the 1980s. In recent years, more than 95% of the applications to the P-3 program have been African – primarily Somalis, Ethiopians and Liberians.

Q: Why did the US decide to conduct DNA testing of some nationality groups applying for resettlement in the US?
A: PRM and DHS/USCIS jointly decided to test a sample of refugee cases due to reported fraud in the P-3 program, particularly in Kenya.

This pilot program later expanded to test applicants in other parts of Africa. (See questions and answers below.)

Q: What rate of fraud did you discover?
A: The rate of fraud varied among nationalities and from country to country, and is difficult to establish definitively as many individuals refused to agree to DNA testing.

We were, however, only able to confirm all claimed biological relationships in fewer than 20% of cases (family units). In the remaining cases, at least one negative result (fraudulent relationship) was identified, or the individuals refused to be tested.

Q: Which refugees are being tested? From which countries?
A: We initially tested a sample of some 500 refugees (primarily Somali and Ethiopian) in Nairobi, Kenya under consideration for U.S. resettlement through the P-3 program. After that sample suggested high rates of fraud, we expanded testing to Ethiopia, Uganda, Ghana, Guinea, Gambia and Cote d’Ivoire. Most of the approximately 3,000 refugees tested are from Somalia, Ethiopia, and Liberia, as these nationalities make up the vast majority of P-3 cases.

It is important to note that the initial DNA testing was limited to members of families applying for the P-3 program, and not between the applicants and the anchor relative in the United States.

Q: What does the suspension entail? When did resettlement in the US stop?
The State Department halted most aspects of P-3 family reunification processing in Kenya and Ethiopia in March, and in Uganda in May. In these locations, all P-3 processing activities have been suspended, including Overseas Processing Entity (OPE) pre-screening and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) interviews.

All cases that were approved by USCIS prior to March 2008 in these three locations have been offered the opportunity to undergo DNA testing of all claimed biological relationships within the case. Travel to the U.S. is proceeding only for those cases where DNA evidence supports all claimed biological relationships, or where there is no claimed biological relationship to test, as in the case of a spouse.

In West Africa, the situation is somewhat different due to the fact that PRM stopped accepting Affidavits of Support (AORs) for Liberians on September 30, 2006 and has committed to completing Liberian P-3 processing as expeditiously as possible. P-3 processing of Liberians in Ghana, Guinea, Gambia and Cote d’Ivoire continues, but all USCIS-approved P-3 cases must agree to undergo DNA testing of all claimed biological relationships

P-3 processing continues for Affidavits of Support (AORs) that were forwarded to the Overseas Processing Entities (OPEs) in Bangkok, Cairo, Havana, Ho Chi Minh City, Istanbul, Kathmandu, Moscow, and Vienna before March 2008. (Note: most of these OPEs are regional and cover processing in a number of surrounding countries.)

It is important to remember that fewer than five percent of P-3 cases are processed outside Africa.

Q: Have you stopped accepting applicants for the P-3 program?
A: We stopped accepting all applications for the P-3 program on October 22, 2008. The Departments of State and Homeland Security, along with our resettlement agency partners, are currently discussing the disposition of applications (other than the small number that were forwarded overseas prior to March 2008 as noted above) that were submitted earlier this year.

Q: How does the Department plan to address the fraud?
The Department is working closely with the Department of Homeland Security to develop and implement new procedures for verifying family relationship claims. These new procedures will likely include DNA testing. The P-3 program in Africa remains suspended as noted above until we have finalized and implemented these new measures.

Q: What measures will be taken against the thousands of refugees who have come into the United States through the P-3 program in the last 20 years?
A: We refer you to the Department of Homeland Security, which is responsible for any actions taken on individuals who have already been admitted as refugees under the P-3 program.

Q: Why did you only conduct DNA testing in Africa?
A: We began in Africa because African P-3s have accounted for more than 95% of P-3 refugee arrivals worldwide in recent years. In addition, we received frequent reports and anecdotal information that there was widespread fraud in the program there.

Q: How many relatives of refugees or asylees have come from Africa to the US via the P-3 program in recent years?
A: Since October 1, 2003, some 36,000 people have arrived from Africa through the P-3 program.

Q: How many P-3s were admitted to the United States, from elsewhere in the world, in recent years?
A: Since October 1, 2003, some 400 people have arrived from other parts of the world through the P-3 program.

Q: Please explain how the P-3 application process works.
A: A person who entered the United States as a refugee, or who was granted asylum after arriving in the United States; and who is a member of an eligible nationality (18 in FY 2009) may file Affidavits of Relationship (AORs) for family members overseas (parent, spouse, and/or unmarried children under 21) in order to establish their family members’ eligibility to apply to the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program.

The Refugee Processing Center (RPC – a Department of State contractor) logs in the AORs and sends them to DHS for review.

DHS reviews the AOR to determine whether the individuals claimed are eligible for processing under P-3. For more information about this aspect of the process, we refer you to DHS.

DHS returns approved affidavits to the RPC, which forwards them to the appropriate Overseas Processing Entities (OPEs) for processing.

The OPEs open refugee admissions cases for the eligible family members, prescreen them, and present them to DHS for the final interview.

Q. Which countries’ citizens are eligible for consideration through the P-3 Program?
A: For fiscal year 2009, the following nationalities are eligible:

Afghanistan
Bhutan
Burma
Burundi
Central African Republic
Colombia
Cuba
Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK)
Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC)
Eritrea
Ethiopia
Haiti
Iran
Iraq
Somalia
Sudan
Uzbekistan
Zimbabwe

Q: Is the P-3 program suspended in those countries where DNA testing has not taken place and/or there is no evidence of fraud?

As of October 22, 2008, the Department of State stopped accepting Affidavits of Relationship (AORs) for all nationalities.

In locations where we have no evidence of fraud — Bangkok, Cairo, Havana, Ho Chi Minh City, Istanbul, Kathmandu, Moscow, and Vienna — the small number of AORs that were submitted and cleared prior to March 2008 are being processed. However, no new applications are being accepted for any nationality at this time

Q: What is the State Department doing to ensure that African refugees continue to be included in the Refugee Admissions Program in numbers commensurate with the humanitarian needs of the region?

A: We continue to work closely with UNHCR to determine which African refugee populations are appropriate candidates for group and individual referrals. For example, we recently authorized the processing of several thousand Eritrean refugees in a camp in Ethiopia and continue to receive P-1 (individual) referrals of Congolese, Burundians, Somalis, and other African nationalities.

In August 2008. PRM’s Acting Assistant Secretary Sam Witten visited Kenya and East Africa where he reconfirmed with UNHCR and other partners the U.S. government’s ongoing commitment to the resettlement of African refugees in need of resettlement.

Reviewing the Reported Numbers of recognized Rohingya Refugee Detainees In 2007


By James,

Reviewing the Reported Numbers of recognized Rohingya Refugee Detainees In 2007
Due to local human rights thinkers do not dare to highlight the numbers of reported Rohingya refugee detainees in 2007, the real figure had been kept as unseen, even in UNHCR’s reports or informings. Whereas, whether fear of low reflection or not the reports was ignored. Beside, more than double numbers of Rohingya refugee detainees were unreportedly remaining and at least 20 people had been missed every year. However the truth should be revealed with a view to achieve the goals of human rights and dignity. The reason why did reports miss, was made ignorance of the situation.







Therefore, we would like to review the reported numbers of UNHCR recognized Rohingya refugee detainees in 2007. These were only reported numbers and they are as follow: –
