Rohingya Survive Violence-and a Storm-Before Coming Ashore in Malaysia

Rohingya boat marks new exodus

The Bangladeshi government has made a decision to relocate about 100,000 Rohingya Muslims before the rainy season begins in June.

Canada should also consider granting refugee and resettlement status to Myanmar's persecuted ethnic Rohingya, 700,000 of whom have fled to neighbouring Bangladesh to escape a brutal campaign by Myanmar's military, he said. In a report, United Nations investigators said such violations may have constituted crimes against humanity.

The Canadian government will review the report and decide on what action to take.

"I wish that she had spoken out".

After the council proposed a visit in February, Myanmar's government said it was "not the right time", but it has now given the green light. World leaders and worldwide organisations such as the United Nations have repeatedly referred to the violence as ethnic cleansing.

"Canada should be actively working with like-minded countries to identify the individuals or parties that should be subject to sanctions", he wrote.

Dodgers finally score, beat Giants 5-0
In his first year of retirement, the 13-year Major League veteran remains the only Giants' pitcher to ever notch a flawless game. Only one of those eight games had as many as seven runs, and Kershaw was involved in two of those that finished below the total.

"The notion that these are all issues of absolute sovereignty, to be settled exclusively between the governments of Myanmar and Bangladesh, misses the point that the UN General Assembly has recognized: the duty to protect the security of individuals is the initially the duty of states, but failing that, becomes a wider regional and, ultimately, worldwide obligation", Rae writes.

"The lesson of history is that genocide is not an event like a bolt of lightning".

Fareed Khan, spokesman for the Rohingya Human Rights Network, said in a statement that the report is far from ideal but he praised Rae for raising the possibility of a genocide in progress.

Five months after being appointed to serve as Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's special envoy to Myanmar, Bob Rae is set to release his final report on the ongoing "humanitarian and security crisis" in the region, which he will present during a mid-morning appearance at the National Press Theatre. "Obviously, we are interested in Rakhine state", said Mr Meza-Cuadra.

Canada needs to deepen its commitment to human rights on the ground, by protecting women and girls, Rae says. They include 730 children below the age of 5. "Canada should also continue its arms embargo and should seek a wider ban on the shipment of arms to Myanmar".

While Canada has already committed more than CAN$45 million in aid to the Rohingya, Rae suggested more was needed and CAN$150 million be given in the next four years.
