Through Thailland's "HELP ON" policy, all the landed Rohingya boat people fall at the hand of greedy human smugglers (the local Thai authority call them agent or guider to Malaysia).
May be concerned Thai authorities do not know the dirty money making project of Human smugglers or agent's hidden plan keeping the Rohingya victims at their secret concentration camps .The inmates are everyday inhumanly beaten to realize equal of 2000 USD as passage fee to Malaysia.Some victims die or become partly disable due to torture at secret camps.If the victims are failed to arrange demanded money,they are sold to fishing trawlers .
There are still many secret camps along Thai and Malaysia boarder where Rohingya boat people are kept as captives.
Thailand and international medias must get full access to this 366 unfortunate Rohingyas . The captives must be interviewed by the concerned parties.
Due to genocide in Arakan, the Rohingya flee their centuries old home land. Tens of thousands of Rohingyas were killed in their homeland . Some fleeing people die in remote jungle of Arakan and some die in the sea.
We have been asking international protection since June 2012 The Thein Sen government police, security forces and Aye Maung's RNDP muscle men have jointly been committing genocidal crimes against the Rohingyas for eight months. Rohingyas are not given National protection. So the UN must deploy peace keeping forces to protect the remaining Rohingyas. If Rohingyas get international protection and justice , no boat people and refugees will be seen.
I would also like to urge Thai government to grand shelter to the Rohingya boat people and UNHCR access .
I would also like to make" HELP ON POLICY" to be meaningful.
