Bangladesh concerned over growing crimes in Rohingya camps
Bangladesh has expressed concern over the increased crimes, human and drug trafficking and unrest in the Rohingya camps in Cox's Bazar as their stay in Bangladesh is prolonging.
Bangladesh urged Myanmar as well as the international community to take effective steps to sustainably repatriate the Rohingyas to Myanmar at the earliest, said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs today.
Bangladesh is now hosting over 1.1 million Rohingyas in Cox's Bazar and Bhasan Char.
Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen condemned the murder of Mohib Ullah, who was a widely recognised leader of the Rohingyas in Bangladesh.
Mohib Ullah was an avowed supporter of the repatriation of the Rohingyas to Myanmar, according to a message shared by the MoFA on its verified Facebook page.
The government of Bangladesh is committed to investigating the heinous crime and bringing the killers to justice, the message reads.
Earlier in the morning, the Foreign Minister vowed to bring the killers of Mohib Ullah to justice soon, in his first remarks since the Rohingya leader's murder.
Dr Momen said a quarter with vested interest killed Mohib as he wanted to return to Myanmar, his homeland.
"The government will take stern action against those who were involved in the killing. Nobody will be spared," he said.
Unknown assailants gunned down the 44-year-old on Wednesday night.
