It is learned that RAB-7 and RAB-15 are liable for the safety of the transfer from Cox’s Bazar to Bhasanchar. Earlier, secretary of state AK Abdul Momen had said that the govt features a decision to transfer the interested Rohingyas to Bhasanchar in December.
Meanwhile, a press release from the UN Resident Coordinator’s Office on Wednesday (December 2nd) said the UN was conscious of plans to relocate Rohingya refugees from Cox’s Bazar to Bhasanchar within the coming days. But the agency wasn’t involved in preparing for the relocation of the refugees or within the process of identifying the Rohingya.
The statement said the United Nations had little information about the transition process. The statement said that the United Nations was in a position to relocate the Rohingya to Bhasanchar, meaning that Rohingya refugees should be ready to make informed and free decisions when it involves relocating to Bhasanchar. That’s why they create decisions supported by relevant, precise, and up-to-date information about the place.
It may be mentioned that in August 2016, many Rohingyas fled the country to Bangladesh in the face of genocide and oppression by the Myanmar army.
In November of that year, the govt launched a project to relocate one lakh Rohingyas from Cox’s Bazar to Bhasanchar. The Bangladesh Navy was given the responsibility to implement the project named Asrayan-3.
But since their first relocation was planned in 2016, Rohingyas are reluctant to travel there. Following this, a team of Rohingya representatives was taken to Bhasanchar last November. The party then agreed to travel to Bhasanchar but returned to Cox’s Bazar and began procrastinating again.
