The UN Special envoy for human rights in Myanmar will come to Bangladesh on January 18 to visit Rohingya camps in Ukhiya of Cox’s Bazar.

Ms Yanghilee will come on five days’ visit which is her 2nd trip in refugee camp in Bangladesh and she will spend most of her time in Rohingya refugee camps.

She was supposed to visit the Rakhine (Arakan) state to observe the human rights situation practically. But Myanmar government banned on her visit to Myanmar and so she could not have access to the country.

Finally she has decided to visit the Rohingya camps in Bangladesh to see the situation of Rohingya living in the makeshift camps in Cox’s bazaar.

A government official said, “Yanghilee want to come to Dhaka. We have welcomed her coming. She will meet with the Foreign Minister A.H Mahmood Ali and his Foreign Secretary M. Shahidul Hoque. She also came to Bangladesh and we welcomed her”.

Approximately 6,50,000 Rohingyas have already fled to Bangladesh since 25 August 2017 to escape violence of Myanmar armed forces in Northern Rakhine (Arakan) state.

More than 4,50,000 Rohingyas have already been here in Bangladesh who fled following systematic persecutions of Myanmar in different period.
