Myanmar is not safe for Rohingyas to return: UN investigator

The UN Independent investigator on Myanmar Yangshee Lee  in her report said that the living condition of the Rohingyas  in Northern Rakhine state is dreadful.

The report points out that the Myanmar government’s promise to issue ‘National Identity Cards (NID) to Rohingya’s after verification is not a solution to the citizenship issue of these people.

It says that the Myanmar government’s continuing conflict with the guerilla group ‘Arakan Army’ seeking autonomy for Rakhine is affecting the lives of Rohingyas in Myanmar adversely.

.In her report Lee urged UN member states to impose sanctions on companies owned by the Myanmar military as they are responsible for the sufferings of Rohingyas since 2011.
