Refugees escape Cox's Bazar

However, life has remained difficult for the Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh, as they lack food, security, education, and work opportunities in the crowded camps.

A report by Human Rights Watch published this year said criminal gangs and affiliates of Islamist armed groups were causing fear at night in the refugee camps in Cox's Bazar.

A 19-year-old Rohingya refugee who recently arrived in Aceh province with her family told the AFP news agency that criminals in Cox's Bazar threatened her and her family every day, and she paid over $1,800 (€1,640) for the boat journey to Indonesia.

Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh: Myanmar military pursues repatriation project

Aljzeera
May 31, 2023

Delegates from Myanmar's government have visited Rohingya refugee camps in Bangladesh as part of a repatriation scheme. It's the second such visit in the past three months. Both countries want to send more than 1,000 Rohingya to Myanmar. Some refugees say they've been pressured into signing repatriation documents. About a million fled Myanmar in 2017 after a military crackdown. Al Jazeera's Tanvir Chowdhury spoke to Rohingya refugees in Cox's Bazar, where few trust the repatriation plan. And live to talk with us is Nay San Lwin, a Burmese human rights activist and co-founder of the Free Rohingya coalition.

Our attention was drawn to a recent news story on statements made by notable people and international organizations on the occasion of the fifth anniversary of the Rohingya catastrophe. Reiterating their assurances, they all essentially stated that they will “continue efforts to find a durable solution to solve the man-made humanitarian disaster.”

A deadly military campaign that began in Rakhine, Myanmar, on August 25, 2017, forced almost a million displaced Rohingyas to seek sanctuary in Bangladesh. Since then, thousands of babies have been born, bringing the total to more than 1.2 million.

The ethnic minority Rohingya Muslims suffer severe persecution in Myanmar. Following a deadly crackdown by the Burmese army in 2017, some 740,000 Rohingya fled to neighbouring Bangladesh, where they were settled in the southern town of Cox’s Bazar. Five years on, the town is home to the world’s largest and most dangerous refugee camp, with frequent floods, fires and gang wars. In December 2020, the Bangladeshi government decided to relocate some of the Rohingya refugees to a remote island in the Bay of Bengal. Our reporters Alban Alvarez and Mathilde Cusin managed to gain access to it.

(New York) – Bangladesh authorities should immediately investigate allegations that security forces beat and arbitrarily detained Rohingya refugees who tried to leave Bhasan Char island, Human Rights Watch said today. The Bangladesh government has relocated nearly 20,000 Rohingya refugees to the remote island without consulting international experts to ensure their safety or determining their humanitarian needs.

Bangladesh security forces on April 6, 2021 arrested and beat at least 12 refugees who were caught trying to leave the island, restricting their freedom of movement. The authorities have not informed family members of their whereabouts. On April 12, a Bangladesh sailor allegedly beat four children with a PVC pipe for leaving their quarters to play with refugee children in another area. The authorities should immediately release any refugees who are arbitrarily detained, and hold to account those responsible for abuses.
