Myanmar urges Bangladesh to extradite 1300 'rebel' Rohingyas

Myanmar urges Bangladesh to extradite 1300 'rebel' Rohingyas

It said they agreed that the process "would be completed preferably within two years from the commencement of repatriation". But it said the return effort envisages "considering the family as a unit", with Myanmar to provide temporary shelter for those returning before rebuilding houses for them.

"The worst would be to move these people from camps in Bangladesh to camps in Myanmar, keeping an artificial situation for a long time and not allowing for them to regain their normal lives", said Guterres, who was previously the head of UNHCR for 10 years.

The UN and other organisations have also repeatedly pointed out the existence of clear evidence of abuse, with the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights calling the operation "a textbook example of ethnic cleansing".

The current Rohingya exodus began when Myanmar's security forces launched a campaign in late August in response to the Rohingya rebels' attacks on security posts in Rakhine, home to an estimated one million members of the Muslim minority not recognized by the Myanmar authorities.

United States Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said the UN refugee agency United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) was consulted but it's very important the agency is fully involved to guarantee the repatriation adheres to global standards.

The meeting in Myanmar's capital Naypyitaw was the first for a joint working group set up to hammer out the details of the November repatriation agreement.

"Myanmar has reiterated its commitment to stop outflow of Myanmar residents to Bangladesh", it said.

At least 9,000 Rohingya were killed in Rakhine state from August 25 to September 24, according to Doctors Without Borders.

Speaking to SkyNews, Twigg said: "We need massive reassurances before there can be any suggestion of refugees returning and any return must be genuinely voluntary".

"Without investigation, transparency, and accountability for crimes against the Rohingya, any discussion of repatriation is a nonstarter".

Bangladeshi foreign secretary Mdshahidul Haque said the government had wanted Myanmar to accept 15,000 Rohingya each week - however, they eventually settled on 300 a day. "Why are basic issues like citizenship, freedom of movement and livelihoods not discussed now so refugees can make informed choices?"
