Dozens of Rohingya migrants arrive in Jakarta

Thirty-six persecuted Rohingya  recently arrived in Jakarta from Aceh, seeking help from the city administration.

Jakarta National and Political Unity Office (Kesbangpol) head Ratiyono revealed that the group had sent a letter to the city administration and that the letter had been read by both him and Governor Basuki “Ahok” Tjahaja Purnama.

Ratiyono cautioned, however, that the city administration could offer only limited aid to the Rohingyas, as the city had “enough problems of its own”.

“Unfortunately, we cannot offer much help to the Rohingyas. We may be able to put them in homes managed by the Jakarta Social Agency,” he told reporters at City Hall on Wednesday.

More than 500 refugees, members of the Myanmar’s Rohingya minority group, entered Indonesia earlier this year. The government gave the migrants leave to stay one year while looking for a permanent home.
