The United Nations calls upon Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand not to oust the carrier ships and immigrants should do something to save them.
The United Nations Human Rights Commissioner Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein said attention should be paid to save the lives of approximately 6,000 immigrants estimated to be still at sea. The United Nations says they are of ethnic Rohingya in Myanmar and Bangladesh.
“I was surprised by the reports that Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia restore boats full of illegal immigrants into the sea, which in the end will cause a lot of them died,” said Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein.
“Focus should be given to saving souls, not further endanger their safety,” added Al Hussein.
On one side of The United Nations Human Rights Commissioner Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein praised Indonesia which has received hundreds of immigrants and Malaysia which has been accommodating 1,080 people over the last few days.
According to the United Nations, Myanmar’s Rohingya ethnic policies become the base issue. After the ethnic Rohingya citizenship status was not recognized, they were forced to live in crowded camps.
Thousands of citizens of ethnic Rohingya by the UN referred to as victims of discrimination and challenges to the issue it dealt with then current immigrant Rohingya will continue to occur.
