Rohingya refugees present Burma with repatriation demands
REFUGEES in Kutupalong camp in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh have issued a visiting senior politician from Burma (Myanmar) with a list of demands regarding the planned return of Rohingya Muslims to Rakhine State. Social Welfare Minister Win Myat Aye visited the camp on Wednesday as part of a three-day trip to Bangladesh, where he met with dozens of refugees. They provided 13 demands regarding their repatriation, calling upon Naypyidaw to guarantee a dignified and safe return to their homes. The UN has said more than 671,000 Rohingya refugees have fled Rakhine State into Cox’s Bazar in neighbouring Bangladesh since Aug 25 in response to so-called “clearing operations” by Burma’s Tatmadaw army.
