INVITATION : PRESS CONFERENCE ---The Rohingya – "unwanted and alone in Thailand…”

Dear Sir/Madam

The Burmese Rohingya Association in Thailand (BRAT) invites you to attend an important press conference which will focus on the current crisis facing the Rohingya in Myanmar and neighbouring countries like Thailand. The press conference will be held on Saturday, 24 August between 9:30 - 13:00 on Saturday, at Student Christian Centre (SCC), Phayathai road, Rachathewi Sky train Station

As you know, this is a critical period for the Rohingya in Thailand. More than 2000 are now held in atrocious conditions in Thai detention centres and their future in this country is uncertain. The six month deadline allowing them to stay on Thai soil has now passed. Furthermore, Thailand is being used as a transit zone by ruthless criminal gangs to traffic which Rohingya on to countries like Malaysia.

Your personal contribution to this press conference and round-table discussion would be greatly valued and I do hope you will be able to make it. Please get in touch using my contact details listed above.

The Rohingya – "unwanted and alone in Thailand…”

The Rohingya are an ethnic minority person now fleeing a vicious ethnic conflict in Arakan, north-west Myanmar. The situation there is desperate; according to civil rights group like ‘Human Rights Watch’, the Rohingya are victims of ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity. As a consequence, we are witnessing the start of a ‘general exodus’, with tens of thousands now fleeing genocide north-west Rakhine State by boat.

This exodus has thrown an intense spotlight on neighboring countries like Thailand. Some 2000 Rohingya are now being held in atrocious conditions in Thai detention centers while many more are being moved through remote Thai locations by criminal gangs. Pressure is building on Thailand’s government to provide better accommodation and long-term certainty to Rohingya detainees. Activists are calling on Thai government officials to lobby their counterparts in Myanmar for better treatment and long-term solutions – like international protection and to return citizenship for the Rohingya in Myanmar.
