UNHCR card holder 3 Burmese Refugees arrested from Seremban state on 7 Jan 2012.

They are Rohingya Burmese refugees and one of them was identified as Mr Saleh Ahmed, joint-secretary of Rohingya community based in Serdang, Kuala Lumpur.

They were arrested by immigration while they are working in a restaurant at around 1:00am of the day.

He also confirmed that their leader had already approached to UNHCR and NGOs for their release.

A newly registered Rohingyan says that registration of undocumented Rohingyan refugees is suspended at the moment on the occasion of corruption. “I had to pay 1,300.RM for the card”. He said.
