The comments came after sixty-three Rohingya Muslims, including 23 children, fleeing the violence in Myanmar were found adrift in a wooden boat in western Indonesia, in the second such event this week.

Hong Xian Zheng's insight:

It is sad to learn that even with the UFORH agreement, countries are still blatantly and so cruely violating the rights of its people. The act of shooting and sabotaging the boats of the Rohingyan refuges constitutes a clear violation of article14 in the UFORH and they should have allowed them to seek refuge in Thailand instead. It has also been repoted that Bangladesh has also begun to refuse these asylum seekers of entry into the country. It is really disappointing to learn that there are people who choose to give a cold shoulder to these innocent people who are merely victims of discrimination and opression in their own country, by asking them to return to their country.
