Minutes of Meeting on 14th May, 2010

Posted by Chris on May 27, 2010

Dear Mr. Ro Mawi,

Thank you very much for the very useful meeting we had with you and some other members of the Chin Refugee Committee (CRC) on 14 May 2010. Following is a summary of the issues discussed:

1. Increase in security incidents: UNHCR is grateful for CRC’s reports on the increasing frequency of such incidents against refugees and asylum-seekers from Myanmar. UNHCR appreciates CRC’s commitment to the community including its visits to police stations and follow-up on cases.  UNHCR has been engaged for a long time in sensitizing police in localities where refugees and asylum-seekers live as well as at a higher level and in ensuring appropriate responses to reported cases.  UNHCR will continue its activities and wherever possible will step them up. It should be clear though that UNHCR does not have the authority to ensure the arrest of perpetrators.
