Help stop persecution in Rakhine

Urges Oxfam
UNB, Dhaka

Oxfam on Wednesday called on all states to ensure justice and protection for the Rohingya, and to immediately take all possible steps to support the cessation of ongoing violence and persecution in Rakhine. Reacting to the testimony of the government of Myanmar in the case at the International Court of Justice (ICJ), Oxfam's Head of Humanitarian Campaigns Fionna Smyth said all ethnic groups living in Rakhine state speak of ongoing violence committed against them by the Myanmar military. The case was launched by The Gambia, alleging Myanmar violated the 1948 Genocide Convention.

"The situation is particularly urgent and particularly stark for the tens of thousands of Rohingya forced to live in squalid camps behind barbed wire fences and military checkpoints, unable to take children to hospital or school, or to go fishing or to the market," Smyth said. Oxfam called on the international community to support the government of Bangladesh and the people of Cox's Bazar, who continue to generously provide for the Rohingya.
