The Immigration and Citizenship Verification Working Committee, one of the committees formed for the successful implementation of the Rakhine State Central Committee for Peace and Development activities, held its first coordination meeting yesterday morning in Nay Pyi Taw.
The Union minister said Rakhine State Administration Council requested approval under the CHRD programme to provide humanitarian assistance to 72 displaced persons who wanted to return home from Bangladesh if they were found to be living in Myanmar and not related to crimes, including violence.
Due to the terrorist incidents that happened in 2017 in Rakhine State, the displaced persons who fled to Bangladesh contacted the Committee on Humanitarian Assistance, Resettlement and Development-CHRD and asked for help to return home. As a result, as of 29 April 2021, 790 displaced persons were repatriated and given National Verification Card (NVC).
The meeting discussed the current repatriation of 72 displaced persons from Rakhine State to Bangladesh, further action plans and work requirements. The meeting was concluded after the Secretary of the working committee had approved the decisions of the meeting.
Displaced persons are returning on their own account as the Bangladesh government has not taken any action yet to repatriate those who have found evidence of residing in Myanmar, according to the agreement signed between two countries on the readmission of displaced persons from Rakhine State.
The meeting was attended by Chairman of the working committee Union Minister U Myint Kyaing of the Ministry of Labour, Immigration and Population, Vice-Chairman of the working committee Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs U Kyaw Myo Htut, members of the committee Deputy Ministers U Ye Tint, Dr Aung Gyi, U Zaw Win, Dr Aye Tun, U Htay Hlaing, and officials.
Chairman of the Rakhine State Administration Council Dr Aung Kyaw Min and three other members joined the meeting via a virtual system from Sittway, Rakhine State. — MNA
