Union Minister Lt-Gen Yar Pyae presides over the meeting 1/2024 of the Central Committee on Repatriation of Illegal Immigrants yesterday.

The Central Committee on Repatriation of Illegal Immigrants held meeting 1/2024 at Areindama Hall of the Headquarters of Myanmar Police Force in Nay Pyi Taw yesterday.
State Administration Council Member Union Minister for Home Affairs Lt-Gen Yar Pyae, who also chairs the central committee, attended the meeting alongside responsible officials.
The chairman stated that since the committee’s establishment on 8 November 2023, it has played a crucial role in identifying, evaluating, and facilitating the repatriation of illegal migrants to their respective home countries in accordance with the law.
The authorities handle illegal immigrants under the Myanmar Immigration (Emergency Provisions) Act from 1947. The committee has facilitated the relocation of 53,089 undocumented migrants from 24 countries between 5 October 2023 and 25 March 2024. Among them, 51,010 were Chinese nationals.
Considering the diplomatic ties between Myanmar and the respective countries, as well as various circumstances, such as immigrants being trafficked or coerced into criminal activities, the committee refrained from taking punitive action against any individuals. Instead, it collaborated with the relevant embassies to facilitate the relocation of these immigrants.
As of 25 March, 84 undocumented foreigners who were detained in Myanmar prisons have been returned to their respective countries.
After the chairman’s speech, attendees provided updates on ongoing processes. The meeting concluded with the chairman delivering closing remarks. — MNA/NT
