The committee advised Home Ministry to take stern actions against traffickers

The Parliamentary Standing Committee on Ministry  of Foreign Affairs yesterday recommended that the government considers Thailand's experience to expedite Rohingya repatriation in Myanmar. 

The parliamentary body came up with the recommendation at its 6th meeting held at the Jatiya Sangsad with Muhammad Faruk Khan in the chair, reports UNB.

The committee discussed the progress being made in the repatriation process of Rohingyas and the latest diplomatic overture of the Myanmar government over the issue, said a Parliament Secretariat handout. 

In February last, the repatriation of forcibly displaced Myanmar refugees from Thailand has got under way and several hundred Rohingya refugees have already been sent back to Myanmar in phases. 

The parliamentary watchdog also recommended the Home Ministry to take stern action against traffickers and syndicates engaged in human trafficking. 

The parliamentary committee reaffirmed its commitment to protecting innocent people and upholding the image of the country.

The committee also advised the Foreign Ministry to continue its efforts so that the international community plays its part in bringing back Bangladeshis who are staying abroad illegally. 

Committee members; Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen, State Minister Md Shahriar Alam, Md Abdul Majid Khan, Md. Habibe Millat, Nahim Razzaq, Kazi Nabil Ahmed and Nizam Uddin Jalil attended the meeting.
