    Nobody Buoy Rohingya in Cambodia for Asylum Seeker

    September 21, 2013 

    (Burma Times) Ibrahim shah – It is learnt accurately by our correspondent that about 32 Rohingya people in Cambodia are in dire situation who fled Burma desperately to escape discrimination of the Burmese Buddhist majority regime and finally reached there since 2010.

    They are still out of refugee or asylum seeker status despite they pleaded many times to various NGOs, humanitarian organizations and UNHCR. In reiteration, many institutions interviewed them; however, in consequence it is in vain yet.

    A brief statement of the Rohingya in Cambodia: Chris Lewa, founder and director of The Arakan Project visited in Cambodia in 19 may 2010 and returned after three days. During her stay with us, She had met with UNHCR, JRS, and head of the refugee-office in Cambodia and submitted our matter and consulted it with them evidently. She told us that certainly we would be granted refugee status on the double. She worked hard relentlessly to solve our matter with JRS and UNHCR. Reiteratively, due to miscarriage she advised us to contact with Rohingya organizations and other humanitarian organizations. JRS helps us only for rent room, water and electricity except food. Here we cannot work since we are not granted officially as asylum seekers. For reiterative pleas to UNHCR, at last, told us that they can only help for medication.

    Apparently, the Rohingya in Cambodia are not granted as asylum seekers yet despite Rohingya are recognized by UN as one of the worlds most persecuted ethnic minority group. They pleaded in reiteration to concerned authorities and several institutions to be granted officially as asylum seekers so that they could earn something for their daily necessities. Without official grant as asylum seekers, they spend their daily lives with dead sufferings. In point of fact, it is miserable to hear their tearful pleas that how they inhabit there as human beings without adequate food despite Rohingya are descended from Human beings.

    Is the Rohingya commune not a part of this world?

    Moreover, it is terribly deplorable that the world charitable organizations, UN, UNHCR, OIC and other humanitarian organizations are out of concern to the plea of some Rohingya for survival as human beings who are remained distressed since 2010 without official recognition as refugee in Cambodia.

    If the UN declared Human right is not effective in the turn of human beings, when and for whom it will be effective?

    Currently, it is crucial to concentrate the crisis of Rohingya in Cambodia who are conveniently forgotten by their fellow human beings.

    Rohingya commune is the ethnic minority group who has been living in western Burma since immemorial decades and has been discriminated perpetually by the Burmese Buddhist majority regime.
