Maung Kyaw Nu said Human traffickers must be traced out and severely punished!!!
We are very thankful of Human Rights Watch media release of unfortunate and forgotten plight of Rohingyas. We are also pleased of regular ground news of Phuketwan despite facing defamation cases in regards of Rohingya boat people. Though the continue trafficking of Rohingya including women and children ,the severe action should be taken by concerned parties. Though Thailand is failure to stop inhuman human trafficking ,this is time for international joint team to cooperate in this dangerous case. I am sure the local southern people including some Rohingya know where the camps are established and who run the trafficking and where the ships reach.It is only need "will to do " and "will to cooperate" . We are ardently asking Thai authority to grant temporary shelter to this genocide escapees at the refugee camps under the supervision of UNHCR . This is the time not for highlighting tragedy news only but for practical action to end humanitarian crisis in this region.We sincerely call urgent intervention and severe punishment for traffickers.
