Local NGOs for immediate relocation of Rohingyas


Cox's Bazar-based NGOs and voluntary groups on Thursday suggested immediate relocation of Rohingyas to other areas fearing their sudden and massive influx endangered the delicate ecosystems alongside the social and economic systems of the scenic tourist destination on the coastlines.

Cox's Bazar's Civil Society Organizations-NGO Forum (CCNF) made the suggestion at a press conference in the capital also seeking enhanced UNHCR involvement in handling the crisis and Rohingyas relocation.

Rezaul Karim Chowdhury of COAST, Aminur Rasul Babul from Unnayan Dhara and  Moqbul from COAST spoke at the press conference while the forum placed a 41- point demand also seeking direct government intervention in relief operations and enhanced UN and foreign aid agencies involvement in tackling the crisis.

They also called for sustained political campaign to expose the Myanmar  government and army to international justice system for their crimes against humanity.
