The death person name was Mohamed Hussain s/o Khala Meya ,vill:Ambari ,Sisttwe. His wife and five children live at IDP camp .He was sick when I visited Sadao IDC.There are many inmates fall sick due to long term living the crowded environment at different IDCs.The Rohingyas fled from genocide to save their lives only. They are political Refugees.They must be kept at Refugee camp. Thia authority has already allowed UNHCR to determine Refugee since last month but we didn't see any satisfactory result yet .The UNHCR must finish their job before six month time frame of Thai government. The UNHCR have their own procedural of work to handle the Refugees rather than include and talk to other NGOs which delay and complicated the case.
Every so called HELP ON policy towards Rohingyas is not international standard .Its makes Rohingyas fall at the hands of traffickers.
According to the Phuket wan news ,it is clear that many families,women ,minor children and old people are seen among the boat people. How some neighboring countries still say Rohingyas are economic migrants.
It is the moral duty of every civil society to save the Rohingyas .There lives are every where very dire.
