Myanmar’s Proposal: All that glitters is not gold

rohinga influx

Myanmar’s promise to take back the Rohingyas, who have taken refuge in Bangladesh, looks empty and seems to be a tactic to ease international pressure.

This is reflected in the contents of a hasty statement put on the official website of State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi hours after Myanmar Union Minister U Kyaw Zeya concluded his Dhaka visit.

The statement released yesterday clearly mentioned that repatriation has to be done on the basis of verification of the refugees in line with the criteria agreed to by the two countries in a joint statement in 1992.

And here comes the catch. If the 1992 agreement is followed, only around 14,000 may get the chance of repatriation, if at all. The reality is that more than five lakh Rohingyas have already arrived in Bangladesh over the last five weeks.

The mention of the 1992 agreement is devious and crafty. It’s a clear indication that Myanmar is most insincere and unfeeling about the brutal genocide that is going on there.

The 1992 agreement was signed after an influx of more than 2.5 lakh fear-stricken Rohingyas who fled their country following a crackdown. After prolonged discussions, Myanmar agreed that the Rohingyas having “Myanmar citizenship identity cards or national registration cards or other relevant documents” issued by the authorities concerned could return to Myanmar.

But since then, things have changed in Myanmar, making it impossible for Rohingyas to meet these criteria.

The Myanmar government began a citizenship verification process in 2014 under the draconian 1982 law which deprived Rohingyas of citizenship. It allowed temporary resident cardholders to apply for citizenship on condition that they are listed as Bangalees.

But in 2015, the temporary resident cards were also cancelled, denying Rohingyas voting rights in the 2015 elections that saw Suu Kyi’s return to power. Later in June that year, Myanmar started issuing Identity Cards of National Verification.

As the Kofi Annan Commission set up by Suu Kyi this year reports that around 4,000 Rohingyas out of one million have been recognised as citizens or naturalised citizens. Around 10,000 more Rohingyas got national verification cards considered as a preparatory step towards citizenship.

So Myanmar’s proposal basically means it is not willing to take back more than these 14,000 registered Rohingyas. The rest will remain with us. Around one million Rohingyas have already taken shelter in Bangladesh — five lakh entered this time and another five lakh in the previous years. They will remain a stateless people and multiply with stateless children.

The hollowness of the Myanmar union minister’s proposal is also reflected in the simple fact that while he was holding talks with the Bangladesh foreign minister, more than 5,000 Rohingyas crossed into Bangladesh.

Myanmar has done nothing to stop genocide. It has not restrained its military. It has not stopped the extremist Buddhists who are at the forefront of the ethnic violence.

Its only aim was to shift the international community’s focus and make the issue a matter of bilateral action.

There has been no reconciliation process in Myanmar that would make the refugees feel safe to return. Rather, their vacated lands and burned houses have been acquired by the Myanmar government.

The sad fact is that when Suu Kyi, who now says only the “verified citizens” would be allowed to return, has forgotten that while she was in prison, her party in 2005 had sought UN Security Council action against Myanmar for human rights violation and violence against ethnic communities after a commission headed by Nobel laureate Desmond Tutu and Czech President Vaclav Havel prepared a report on Myanmar.

Today, the same Suu Kyi doesn’t consider the persecuted Rohingyas as humans worthy of returning to their own land.

    • The cyberneticists have a saying, "It takes variety to control variety." By "variety," they mean the number of states that a system can take on. Put in longer terms, a control system must be able to take on as many states as can the system to be controlled. Otherwise the system to be controlled can get into states the controlling system cannot reach. I think this cybernetic axiom exemplifies the point you're trying to make.

    • Yo añadiría a lo de empresarios voraces el calificativo de insaciables. Si comiesen mucho, pero alguna vez estuviesen ya hartos…pero no.En cuanto a la crisis, las grandes empresas, pongamos como ejemplo la banca, se jactan en sus Juntas Generales de ganar cada año mas del 20% sobre el ejercicio anterior.Y dicen que es muy legítimo retribuir a los accionistas así y que además es una forma de generar riqueza.La precariedad en el empleo, los gobiernos socialistas y los sindicatos…… ufffff….eso daría para varios tomos…. y lomos.Saludos.

    • Verdelet / You’re probably right although I think it would be interesting if a manga would step outside of the status quo, instead of mindless otaku pandering, but I guess that doesn’t sell. I probably would be somewhat turned off by this if Juumonji weren’t already my favorite girl though, so you’re right about that.On another note, /a/ of 4chan seems to have heard a rumor that Im Dal Young is already “giving up” on this. I assume this is not true as apparently it’s getting two more chapters in this month alone according to the last page of this chapter?

    • Eens met Arno dat als men ook een vorm van matching zou hebben deze applicatie wel eens een killer kan gaan worden. Terechte opmerking van marc dat de tool wel vergezeld dient te gaan van een structurele periodieke activatiecampagne ( de valkuil voor elk referralprogramma). Complimenten voor netwerven voor eindelijk weer een recruitmenttool die waarde toevoegd aan het online recruitmentlandschap!

    • Jon chased you 'round the kitchen all I could think of was "waving a red flag in front of a bull"! So strange to see you blonde and suited up; working in the corporate world can suck the soul from those of us who can't squeeze our personalities into the boxes provided. I'm glad you were able to get out and let your awesome self shine! Love those colour-blocked platforms and the bikini!

    • (Paperback) I use these books for my preschool class. They’re great books that teach necessary skills. It teaches everything from cutting skills, to shapes to letter recognition. I do think it suits preschoolers better than kindergarteners, but would be a good help for those struggling in Kindergarten. There are books in this series that focus on just math, or just letters, but this is a good book that covers it all.

    • it poses a safety risk. Apparently the guys from the car sales place have been requesting that it get removed. It is one of the only standing significant trees of this type in the area. They are not going to replace with the same species. Not fair, the tree was there first, if anything we pose of a safety risk to the planet, not the tree to us… Anyway, not sure if this is the sort of thing you guys do. Thought you should know.

    • Howdy would you mind letting me know which hosting company you’re using? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different web browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most. Can you suggest a good internet hosting provider at a fair price? Thank you, I appreciate it!

    • 19 juin 2012Good blog post. Some tips i would like to make contributions about is that computer system memory ought to be purchased if the computer cannot cope with anything you do by using it. One can set up two RAM memory boards containing 1GB each, as an example, but not one of 1GB and one with 2GB. One should always check the company’s documentation for own PC to ensure what type of memory space is required.

Jaikussahan on mahdollista liittää RSS feedejä omaan presence tietoon mistä vaan, joten niitä voisi liittää täältä botsbot-palvelusta (esim. julkaisu tai paikkatietoa missä on ollut ja ehkä kenen kanssa).

  4. It’s becoming more and more of a soap opera to watch CJ and LGF heading directly towards oblivion and doing everything in their power to accelerate the motion in the aforementioned direction.Every intelligent and rational person is unfaltering being eliminated from all association with LGF and CJ, on even the most skimpiest shred of “evidence” and basically with the message: “You do not agree with our beloved leader, and thus you must be a blog-traitor, a recidivist… a racist, or even a genocidalist!”Expect more frequent openings for registrations to fill the ranks of fresh LGF sycophants…

  7. Good one.I only pitty the race of the dog. Portuguese Water Dogs are not common here in central and Northern Portugal but they are a fine race and somewhat common in Southern Portugal where they work as dogs should, helping fisherman and being great company dogs. They are smart dogs, good dogs.Unfortunetly, we can now see dogs of this great race being held in a “gayish” fashion, sometimes even dressed, it’s sad.This once great race will pursue the gayish path of the Poodle…Sad.

  9. I prefer the presentation of top as (exists x. x) and of bottom as (forall x. x) because explaining them doesn’t require const (which, ignoring some other requirements for top, would work for many other types as long as they are inhabited) or fuzzy arguments about not being inhabited (which feels a bit like cheating since you’re still claiming the function _|_ -> A exists, yet it can’t be defined in Haskell without nontermination in the function body).

  12. Leonard:I was trying to get at the results that MM doesn’t like, not the causes. If voting is a problem, it can’t be just because he doesn’t like voting, but because he doesn’t like the results of that voting. So what results are so bad that it’s worth throwing out the whole American experiment and starting over?

  13. Un régime nazi?

Dans ce cas, Obama n’innove pas vraiment.

  15. I love Grey walls. They’re so very calming without being either warm or cold. I had a very small closet sized bedroom this color.

  18. My dilemma could be the “beneficiary” of the trust remaining considered a member also, and thus allowed to serve. This would appear to point out that if the wife is definitely the trustee & grantor, but her husband is named a “beneficiary” and residing in the residence then he’s a member and can serve around the board. Am I looking at this correctly?
