Rohingya Will Be Deported, Supreme Court Says Myanmar Has Accepted Them

Rohingya Will Be Deported, Supreme Court Says Myanmar Has Accepted Them

Just after the court's order, the authorities concerned deported the seven, who had migrated to India in 2012.

Those deported are Md Jamal, Mohbul Khan, Jamal Hussain, Md Yonus, Sabir Ahmed, Rahim Uddin and Md Salam, all in the age bracket of 26-32 years, a Cachar district official said.

The Supreme Court said it would allow their deportation because Myanmar had accepted them as citizens. "The petition is dismissed", a bench comprising Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justices S K Kaul and K M Joseph said.

The nationality of the immigrants was confirmed after the Myanmar government verified their addresses in Rakhine State, another official said, reported PTI.

The fresh plea said that the decision to deport was in "grave violation" of India's worldwide obligation and moreover, the situation in Myanmar was extremely risky for the Rohingyas to return and they are likely to be subjected to torture and even killed.

The bench, asked Mehta that does his submissions made before the court were on an affidavit.

Almost 200 Rohingya are known to be detained in India on charges of illegal entry, Achiume said. The Rohingyas were later lodged at a detention centre in Assam's Silchar.

"They were handed over to the authorities of Myanmar at Moreh border post", said senior Assam police officer Bhaskar Jyoti Mahanta. They had been held in prison since 2012 for illegal entry into the country.

Bhushan said that Myanmar had earlier refused to accept these Rohingya as its citizens. 4, 2018 rejected a plea by Bhushan, a defense attorney, to let them live in India as they feared reprisal in Myanmar. The United Nations has termed the repression "ethnic cleansing" and "genocide".

"These are not illegal immigrants but refugees who have migrated due to genocide in their country". Less than 15,000 are registered with the UN High Commissioner for Refugees. "If they are willing to go back to their country, then its fine but they should not be sent under some kind of duress", he said.

"These individuals should be allowed to make an informed decision about their return to Myanmar in the current conditions and/or access their right to seek safe asylum", the statement said.

Bhushan said it is a matter of life and it is the court's responsibility to see that the lives of Rohingya are protected.

In response, the chief justice was quoted as saying: "We are fully aware of our responsibility towards right to life and no one needs to remind us about our responsibilities". "We very well understand our responsibilities". According to an estimate, there are now 40,000 Rohingya refugees in India after they escaped the state-sponsored persecution in their own country.

Thousands of Rohingya refugees had fled their country after the military and Buddhist terrorists launched sustained attack against them by killings hundreds of them in Rakhine state.
