Bangladesh Commence Registration of Rohingyas amid Catastrophe

By Rohingya Vision TV | 16th September 2017

Bangladesh government started registration for Rohingya, who recently entered Bangladesh by overcoming the Burmese Military’s shooting, anti-personnel land mine and slaughtering.

Various local sources of Bangladesh have said that the Rohingya registration and accommodation process is running very slow due to a lack of logistics support and expertise, as well as because the refugees are unaware of registration procedures.

During the first three days, the government has completed the registration of 800 refugees at Kutupalong via biometric procedure using four booths at the camp, since the government began the initiative on Monday.

According to Registration officials, increasing logistics support, additional spaces and computer setups, will help to speed up the process and as much is expected from next week.

When asked from the locals, many said they were unaware of the registration process, while others said they were aware but did not know where to register or why to register.

When questioned about the Registration Process, Cox’s Bazar Assisstant Commissioner and Executive Magistrate AKM Lutfor Rahman said that registration would speed up once they began the process in two more camps, hopefully within seven or eight days.

He further added that “From Thursday we will start registration at Noyapara camp. With just four booths, we registered 800 in just Kutupalong camp,” quoted Dhaka Tribune.

More than 400,000 desperate Rohingyas have arrived Bangladesh in 3 weeks, where many are either killed or trapped in the hilly areas of Maungdaw, Buthidaung and Rathedaung. Up till now death and property casualties are not fully counted yet for the ongoing massacre and arson attacks in Rohinga villages.
