UNHCR Saddened Over Death And Injuries As Refugees Attempt To Return To Bhutan
PDF File Size: 35 KB | Download   
The UN refugee agency is extremely concerned over a violent confrontation on the Mechi bridge, that divides Nepal and India, between marching refuges and Indian police and is saddened over death of one refugee and several injured. Starting Monday, thousands of refugees from camps in eastern Nepal organised a “march” to exercise their right of return to their home country. Reportedly, the march turned violent on Tuesday, when the marching refugees clashed with
Indian police. “We are indeed extremely concerned by the latest developments and fully understand the increasing frustration of the refugees about the lack of progress on repatriation,“ said Abraham ABRAHAM, UNHCR representative in Nepal. Consistent with the call of the Government of Nepal, UNHCR appeals to all refugees to return to their respective camps and urges all sides to refrain from violence and the use of force. Meanwhile, the situation in the camps was reportedly calm on Wednesday morning. The government has lifted curfew in the camps. The UN refugee agency together with the international community will make every effort to ensure that as many doors as possible are opened in terms of a lasting solution to the plight of the refugees, including voluntary repatriation and the implementation of third country resettlement. It strongly supports the right of refugees to return to Bhutan, but at the same time asks refugees to uphold the right of every individual to make informed choices and take decisions regarding his or her own future.
