Rohingya refugees refuse repatriation to Myanmar

A new push to repatriate Rohingya refugees from Bangladesh to Myanmar has apparently ended in failure after no one turned up to board the waiting buses.

Myanmar has given the go ahead for more than 3,000 refugees to be returned to Myanmar and issued them with documentation, but none of them have yet chosen to follow through with it, fearing what might happen to them on their return.

This is Bangladesh‘s second repatriation attempt, after a previous push in November failed.

Nearly 750,000 of the persecuted Muslim minority fled ethnic persecution in 2017 in Myanmar’s Rakhine state.
