Bangladesh government bars 41 NGOs from Rohingya Camps

This was announced on Saturday by Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen in Sylhet. He said A total of 139 NGOs have been operating in the Rohingya camps since the refugee crisis began in August, 2017.

Earlier on Thursday the NGO Affairs Bureau had suspended six projects being run by an NGO called Mukti for allegedly making sharp weapons for distribution among Rohingyas.

Government of Bangladesh has started tightening control over the NGOs after a massive rally was organized on 25 August at the Rohingya Camps in Cox’s Bazar to mark two years of being forced out of Myanmar. Government said it had not given any permission to hold the rally at the refugee camps.

On Thursday, the Foreign Minister had warned that action will be taken against the NGOs working in the Rohingya camps if they violated the terms and conditions of their registration.
