Burma Myanmar news
Some of the Muslim Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh come to the Kingdom for employment with fake Bangladeshi passports, a senior Dhaka government official claimed.
Information Minister Hasanul Haq Inu told a group of visiting foreign journalists here that some of these refugees, who were trained in militancy, have been sent to countries such as the UK, India and to some Middle Eastern countries such as Dubai and Saudi Arabia for various purposes.
According to the official, these refugees were arrested in those countries for committing various crimes. Subsequently, it was found that they were Muslim Rohingyas, who had crossed the Bangladesh-Myanmar border in the south of the country.
The minister alleged that these refugees have doctored the passports with the help of the NGOs that were working for the Muslim Rohingya camp in Bangladesh. He said that these NGOs have some links with local political parties dedicated to terror.
He said Bangladesh is home to more than 2,000 NGOs, and added that his government is greatly concerned about the issue that brings disrepute to his country.
“Muslim Rohingyas could be easily differentiated from Bangladeshis by their language since they cannot speak Bengali,” Inu said, pointing out they can only speak Rohingya and Myanmar languages. He said that the upkeep of the refugees in the camp is partly funded by the UNHCR and maintaining them is going to be a huge financial burden on the state. With the new government in power in Myanmar, Bangladesh plans to take up the issue of sending them back home.
Arab News learned that the recent Saudi delegation that visited Dhaka, had expressed concerns over the fake Bangladesh passports found among Rohingya refugees and their misdoings in the Kingdom.
Last month, the Bangladesh government urged the international community to work closely with Dhaka to assist in the process of repatriation of Myanmar refugees in the country.
The government said repatriation of Myanmar refugees was important to prevent transnational crimes including human trafficking, illicit drugs and arms trafficking as well as religious extremism along Bangladesh-Myanmar border.
Black Case Number: A 517/2556 Case Type Criminal Prosecution: Natural Fruit Company Ltd.
Defendant: Mr Andy Hall
Case Claims: Defamation, Computer Crimes Act Date of Case Submission: 04/02/2556
Case Summary: Between 15th January 2013 and 21st January 2013, continuously throughout the day and night, the defendant had the audacity to recall and publically disseminate the results of his research which he claimed to have recieved from interviewing workers of the prosecutor. In addition, the defendant discussed and expanded on his research in the presence of many members of the public and media. As a result, media used the research findings that the defendant had disseminated and printed these findings on three websites and other websites. The research findings made allegations of human rights and labour rights violations including employment of child labourers under 15 years of age, employment of labourers for less than the legal minimum wage, refusal to allow workers days off and bonuses in line with the law. In addition, Myanmar workers claimed that their passports were unlawfully confiscated by the prosecutor. All of this information is false. The result of this dissemination of false information by the defendant has resulted in significant loss of reputation for the prosecutor who has been loathed and looked down upon by the public and overseas persons who recieved knowledge of the defendant’s claims, including via computer. The alleged acts took place in every district and every area of Bangkok. The prosecution requests that the defendant is punished in accordance with the Criminal Code sections 326, 328 and 332 and the Computer Crimes Act 2007 sections 3 and 4.
