Going ahead with its plan to partially relocate Rohingyas from the refugee camps of Cox’s Bazar, the government of Bangladesh sent a batch of 1642 Rohingyas to the newly developed facility at Bhashan char on Friday. Another 3500 Rohingyas will be sent to the Bhashan char this week and the relocation will be completed within a week, official news agency BSS quoted a navy official.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) in a statement reaffirmed that the relocation has been done in a completely voluntary manner. It said relocation is part of the broader plan to repatriate the Rohingya refugees which is the only priority for Bangladesh. Currently more than a million Rohingyas are living in refugee camps in Bangladesh after fleeing the military crackdown in the Rakhine province of Myanmar in August 2017.
