Guterres Calls For Rohingyas To Be Granted Citizenship

Guterres Calls For Rohingyas To Be Granted Citizenship”

"I think nobody wants to see a return to military rule in (Myanmar), nobody wants to see a return of the generals", he said, adding that Nobel Peace Prize laureate Suu Kyi should use her moral capital to highlight the plight of the Rohingya.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a longtime Suu Kyi friend and ally, said that during a telephone call she "agreed with the need for immediate and improved access of humanitarian assistance to the region, particularly by the International Red Cross, and she conveyed that she is working toward that end".

In a Facebook post, Dr Balakrishnan said he had a "warm and open discussion" with Aung San Suu Kyi on the situation in Rakhine State.

We hope the world would speak loudly from the forum of UN Security Council as well despite concerns that after India, China too has come to the rescue of Myanmar, which stood isolated globally because of its unending genocide of Rohingyas, forcing 370,000 of them to flee to neighbouring Bangladesh.

Bangladeshi magistrates operating mobile courts in Cox's Bazar and nearby districts have now started sentencing boat owners and local villagers to terms of up to six months in prison, officials said Thursday.

"Violence in Myanmar has created a humanitarian catastrophe".

Ethnic cleansing is not recognized as a separate crime under worldwide law but allegations of ethnic cleansing as part of wider, systematic human rights violations have been heard in global courts.

Many members of the Rohingya community in Melbourne have family members who have been killed in the current genocidal attacks on Rohingya in Myanmar.

Rights group Amnesty International said evidence pointed to a "mass-scale scorched-earth campaign" across the north of Rakhine that was unmistakably ethnic cleansing.

Backing up the pictures, Amnesty said fire sensors also deployed on satellites had detected 80 large-scale blazes across northern Rakhine state since August 25, when the army launched "clearance operations".

It said it also had credible reports of Rohingya militants burning the homes of ethnic Rakhine and other minorities.

As de facto head of Burma's elected civilian government, she is in the peculiar position of having no control over the security forces carrying out the persecution, which are under the command of Senior General Min Aung Hlaing.

Bangladesh says all refugees must go home and has called for safe areas in Myanmar. Most Rohingya are stateless.

"Our little part, as a caring nation, can halt the horrific events in Myanmar", they said.
