The Sri Lankan Civil Security Department’s (CSD) activities in the Vanni have embedded and normalised militarisation in the region as well as creating an “economic dependence on the military,” stated a report by the Adayaalam Centre for Policy Research (ACPR) today.

“The growth of the CSD in the Vanni points to the larger issue of the Sri Lankan military’s failure to transition into a reduced post-war role,” stated a press release.

“Instead, the military’s approach to its post-war role has been to embed and normalize the process of militarisation, thereby extending its control and subjugation of Tamil populations in the Vanni.” ... [Tamil Guardian - 20/9/17]

 

 

According to the political, media and human rights establishment, Australia bears no responsibility for this crisis [Dhaka Tribune - 21/9/17]:

 

Unplanned accommodation for refugees in Cox’s Bazar, many of which are being built on the sides of hills, are at serious risk of landslides in the event of heavy rainfall or earthquakes, experts warn.

The 421,000 displaced Rohingya who have fled ethnic cleansing in Myanmar’s Rakhine state, are being housed in temporary shelters on the slopes of hills in Kutupalong, Balukhali and Palongkhali areas where a landslide may result in heavy casualties.

Cox’s Bazar district has seen a torrential downpour in the last few days, increasing the likelihood of flash floods and mudslides.

Expertise in this sector said that if the rain continues for a few more days, the slopes may become unstable.

Experts said the Rohingya refugees are not used to living in the area and don’t know the terrain.

The unplanned way in which government agencies are putting up makeshift shelters will compound the danger. ...

Can "advocates" who are unquestioningly promoting the cruel US fake "deal" lottery pantomime say where the refugees Australia tricked into exile from Nauru to Cambodia are right now?

Will the "lucky" US few have full civil rights?

What is their destination city?

Will they be detained at any time and/or pressured to return to their home countries?

The pro "deterrence" UNHCR - who are providing cover for the fake US "deal" - must at least advise whether the refugees will be subject to house arrest conditions, and denied access to health care and other services, as applies with the Cambodia "deal".

 

 

Two more Nauru refugees reportedly succumb to four years of torture; accept Australia/IOM false promises and lies for exile to Cambodia [Cambodia Daily - 14/2/17]:

 

Two more refugees being held on the tiny Pacific island of Nauru have "volunteered" to move to Cambodia and are now awaiting the go-ahead from the Interior Ministry, according to an immigration official.

The refugees, one from Syria and the other a member of the beleaguered Rohingya minority of Burma, will arrive under a controversial deal with Australia that allows those being held in detention centers in the island nation—after being caught trying to reach Australian shores—to be resettled in Cambodia [bullies men, women and children being denied the right to seek asylum, into accepting a stateless existance in Cambodia, as a way of escaping their punishment in Nauru concentration camp.]

Only a handful have taken up the offer since the deal was struck in September 2014, with the sixth refugee making the journey to Cambodia in November last year.

Four have already left to return to their home countries, saying they felt unsafe and abandoned by officials. ...

Australia's multi million dollar "Voyage of the Damned" refugee exile deal with Cambodia is no joke [BBC – 18/9/15]:

 

... When the first four refugees arrived in June, they were swiftly taken to a gated villa on a quiet street in southern Phnom Penh, where they have been sequestered ever since.

They have had limited contact with outsiders, including other people living in the neighbourhood.

Officials at the International Organization for Migration who are assisting the refugees will not be drawn on their daily activities, citing privacy concerns. ...
