MERHROM URGENTLY PRESS STATEMENT
17 June 2018
Myanmar Ethnic Rohingya Human Rights Organization Malaysia (MERHROM) & Ketua Rohingya Malaysia MRM welcome the move by the Malaysian government to work with Turkish government to help refugees. We thank both governments for their continuous support for Rohingya refugees in Malaysia, Cox’s Bazar and inside Myanmar. We truly appreciate the effort of both countries to support refugees.
Although some refugees came to Malaysia due to economic reason but Rohingya left our country due to continuous persecution by Myanmar government. The Rohingya faced Slow Burning Genocide in Myanmar for the past 7 decades. Now Rohingya is facing the last phase of Genocide.
We urge the World Leaders to come together to Stop Rohingya Genocide before all Rohingya disappear from Myanmar. We must learn from Rwanda Genocide. Delay action caused thousands of innocent people died. We must not allowed another Genocide to continue in this century. Rwanda Genocide is the worst in the world history but Rohingya Genocide is even worst.
We hope there is still future for our generation especially in this month of Syawal. We urge the World Leaders to support the initiative to refer Myanmar to the International Criminal Court. The Myanmar government and the military officials must be held accountable for committing Genocide against Rohingya.
Zafar Ahmad Abdul Ghani.
President of Myanmar Ethnic Rohingya Human Rights Organization Malaysia ( MERHROM)
& Ketua Rohingya Malaysia MRM
