Decade Detention - Current Situation of Rohingyas in Myanmar Camps

Orders based on international rules have failed for Rohingyas’ who have spent 10 years in Myanmar’s concentration camps.

June marks a decade of hardship for the Rohingya population in Myanmar’s Rakhine state, from which they have been evicted and are now living in open detention camps. Attacks on the Rohingya population in 2012 ushered in an era of escalating atrocities. Which laid the groundwork for a more vicious and systematic military clampdown in 2016 and finally in 2017 that led to the mass exodus of nearly one million helpless people to neighboring Bangladesh. The current situation of Rohingyas living in Myanmar is worse than it was a decade ago, without any concrete solution.
