No one Return to Myanmar on Dhaka’s Official Repatriation Date

Not a single one of the refugees who fled Myanmar to Bangladesh during a military counterinsurgency operation in August 2017 returned to Myanmar on Thursday, the day Dhaka had slated as the beginning of the repatriation process.

The Bangladeshi government earlier informed the government that 3,450 displaced people would be repatriated on Aug. 22, said Union Minister for Social Welfare, Relief and Resettlement U Win Myat Aye, who is currently in Rakhine State’s capital Sittwe to supervise the repatriation process.

“I haven’t received any report of their repatriation. We will see,” the Union minister told The Irrawaddy on Thursday.
