Activists appeal for rescue of Rohingya refugees stranded at sea in leaking boat | Rohingya

Dec 10, 2022

| Rohingya Eleon 4 mins ago Activists have called for emergency aid to rescue 160 Rohingya refugees, including young children, who they say have been stranded at sea on a damaged boat and without food or water for days. The boat, which activists say is near Malaysian waters, is believed to have left on November 25 from Bangladesh, where nearly a million Rohingya live in squalid and cramped refugee camps. Every year, at the end of the rainy season, many Rohingya attempt the perilous journey across the Andaman Sea, hoping to reach Muslim-majority Malaysia or Indonesia. Their numbers this year have increased dramatically due to deteriorating conditions in refugee camps in Bangladesh and Myanmar, where the military took over last year. Chris Lewa, director of the rights group Arakan Project, which interviewed the families of those on board, said the boat was leaking and people had no water or food. There had been inaction by governments in the region, she said: “Nobody wants to take any responsibility.” Lewa added that the boat was in Malaysia’s search and rescue region, according to information sent by those on board on Thursday afternoon. “We have information about his whereabouts. It’s lucky that this boat has a satellite phone,” she said, adding that despite this no help had been forthcoming. Lilianne Fan, chair of the Asia Pacific Refugee Rights Network’s Rohingya working group, which consulted relatives of those on board, said a family member had last contact with the boat at 4 p.m. Kuala time. Lumpur (0800 GMT) on Friday, and that the boat had not yet received help at that time. “They say the conditions are extremely dire; people had no food or water. It really is a very desperate situation,” she said. Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) issued a statement on Saturday calling on Malaysia to urgently allow the safe disembarkation of refugees, adding: “Although MSF has no information on the specific health needs of those on board the boat, it is very likely that the provision of life-saving medical assistance will be required as fatalities have been reported. The Malaysian government has yet to respond to a request for comment. At least four boats left Bangladesh between November 25 and 27, according to Lewa. It was not possible for the Guardian to confirm this. The number of boats at sea has contributed to confusion over their status and which regional government will lead the rescue efforts. On Friday, a Vietnamese ship reportedly rescued 154 Rohingya from a damaged boat in the Andaman Sea and handed them over to the Myanmar military. It is feared that those on board will be imprisoned and persecuted by the army, accused of genocide against the minority. The UN refugee agency (UNHCR) recently issued an alert about a “dramatic increase” in the number of people trying to make the perilous crossing of the Andaman Sea. So far this year, 119 people have been reported dead or missing trying to do so, according to UNHCR. It is feared that the worsening situation in the camps in Bangladesh and Myanmar has pushed more people to take the risk. “They feel that the situation in Bangladesh is getting worse. The [are] lots of killings, kidnappings and violence, gang violence in the refugee camp,” Lewa said. The 2021 military coup in Myanmar means the prospect of repatriation is even more remote, she added. Rachel Chhoa-Howard, Southeast Asia researcher for Amnesty International, said quick action was needed. “Regional governments must urgently coordinate and cooperate on search and rescue operations. They must attempt to locate any boat in distress and ensure those on board are allowed to disembark safely and receive appropriate medical support, food and water,” Chhoa-Howard said in a statement. statement Friday.
