Malaysia Intercepts Boat Carrying Dozens of Rohingya

Posted April 05, 2018

The UNHCR estimated that more than 670,000 refugees have fled to Bangladesh since August previous year to escape a campaign of killings, arson and rape targeted at the predominantly Muslim Rohingya community in Myanmar's Rakhine State.

"It is hard to convey in words the extent of the humanitarian crisis now being faced in Bangladesh", Rae wrote in an interim report released in December.

"Canada is determined to help respond to this crisis".

Boats can originate from Myanmar or from overcrowded Bangladesh camps, rights groups have said.

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.

Bob Rae, Canada's special envoy on the Rohingya crisis in Myanmar, will release a report outlining what he recommends the government do about the humanitarian and security conflict. World leaders and global organisations such as the United Nations have repeatedly referred to the violence as ethnic cleansing.

Rae recommends Canada take a lead role with like-minded countries in a United Nations genocide investigation.

"I urge other philanthropies, governments, and the private sector to develop a comprehensive action plan to provide Bangladesh with major financial support, debt forgiveness, and trade concessions while continuing to call on the Myanmar government to ensure safe, voluntary, and dignified return for the Rohingya", said Soros.

In response, Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov praised the efforts by Bangladesh and considered the recent engagements of Myanmar and the proposed inclusion of United Nations agencies and UNHCR in the rehabilitation arrangement.

"The lesson of history is that genocide is not an event like a bolt of lightning".

Most Rohingya Muslim refugees have fled to neighbouring Bangladesh.

A boat carrying dozens of Rohingya Muslims from Myanmar arrived in Malaysia on Tuesday and the refugees will be allowed to enter the country, but an expert played down fears of a new exodus. The coastguard said there were 19 men, 17 women, 12 girls and eight boys on the boat. This right extends to migrants, who may be detained only in exceptional circumstances and in accordance with global law.

Maj. -Gen. Maung Maung Soe, the head of Myanmar's western army command is on such lists and Rae makes clear others could be added - "anyone deemed to share responsibility for the abuses of human rights and the crimes against humanity in Myanmar".

"To cut off development assistance to or collaboration with the entire Myanmar public sector or to stop engaging with the government of Myanmar would have the effect of making Canada nearly entirely irrelevant to any debate or discussion on how to move forward".
