For Immediate Release

It is obvious that since the year 2009, office of the United Nations High Commissioner for
Refugees (UNHCR) in Malaysia has been adjourned to deal with perfect Rohingya Refugee
organizations, which have been trying their level best to have appointment with the agency.

We at the Rohingya Arakanese Refugee Committee (RARC), Malaysia believe that the UN
Refugee Agency (UNHCR) in Malaysia is being monopolized by some kinds of influential
quarters whether application of power or high amount of under table payment. Otherwise,
UNHCR would not keep silent to 10 (ten) official letters in last 4 months from January to
April 2011.

This silence resulted to serious dilemma towards tens of thousands of Rohingya

undocumented refugees and asylum seekers. They have to pass life in sub-human condition
as no protection mechanism is introduced for them.

At the same time, various kinds of non-refugees and opportunist economic migrants are
trying to tarnish the fate of Rohingya refugees and asylum seekers, persuading to join in
different types of working sectors, with baseless hopes to UNHCR registration and
Malaysian Identification Card in order to enjoy percentage benefits.

Our organization has come to indentify that such kinds of people are bring defamations of
both UN Refugee Agency and the Government of Malaysia through out misguiding the
Rohingya refugees, while these people do not have any experience on the difficulties and
suffering of refugees in their lives.

In these regards, we appeal to the UN Refugee Agency UNHCR) and other refugee
concerned quarters to immediately convene talks with genuine Rohingya refugee
communities in order to ensure the protection and other facilities for the Rohingya refugee
victims in the country.

We also appeal to the UNHCR to repeal all kinds of discriminations against the Rohingya
refugees in getting registration, protection, assistance, resettlement and other facilities of
refugees which were setforth by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, International
Human Rights Mechanism, Human Rights standards and UN Refugee Convention of 1951
together with its additional protocol of 1967.
