The experts, and over 200 participants of inspired people, activists, students, individuals and advocates including Australian barrister Julian Burnside and Staffs of Amnesty International Australia and Ivy Josiah from Malaysia and a few others who visited Burma, have joined in the conference. 


Habib's briefing from the 13 pages long full statement of ''The Destruction of The Rohingya'' is as below; 

The case of Rohingya is a long standing heinous horror crimes that been well documented and well known to international communities, world leaders and United Nations. The Rohingya people have been facing total destruction and slowly driven out from their homelands  throughout various pogroms by the military powered governments since 1960s.

The attacks resumed very violently from June 2012 under the banner of ‘transition to democracy led by former military general Thein Sein to popular Ms. Aung San Suu Kyi. The late military powered government of NLD became more powerful in defence of their brutalities and making them acceptable internationally due to lack of effective action by United Nations, international communities, world leaders, and also for vital supports from China, Russia and India.

Massive attacks from June 2012 have achieved wiping out of 90% of total Rohingya population numbering about a million of people, killing over 60,000 innocent people including children and women, destruction of about 500 villages, rapping thousands of women as young as aged  10, detention of thousands of people involving children, large scale of physical tortures, looting, extortion, permanently trapping about 150,000 people into concentration camps and systematic confinement of the remaining people followed by blockage of aid and ration supplies, destroying identities and forcing to accept foreigner identity.
These types of vigilante attacks, indiscriminate killings, brutal rapes, persistent persecution, systematic oppression, tyrant abuses, arbitrary arrest, corporal and collective punishments, violence and rapes, massive destruction of historical buildings and houses,  destroying identities,  practicing discriminatory laws and orders, rigid confinement and restriction, segregation and creation of muslim free-zones, permanent barrier in every social, cultural, welfare, health-care, education, livelihood sectors and cutting off of electricity and waters, are very clear evidences of genocide, ethnic cleansing, war crimes and crimes against humanity.

The Suu Kyi led NLD government defiantly blocked the UN Inquiry Commission, foreign officials, independent journalists, aid agencies and ration supplies. As well as, it has constructed fake stories, provided reverse information, and dismissed the crisis on the ground by forming commission after commission and fancily fingering the armed Rohingya resistant group ARSA.
Because of the repeating attacks and violence were very well planned and sponsor by the state rulers, as well as, the Myanmar judiciary is completely authoritarian that continued denial of their heinous crimes that is another attempt of dismissal of their crimes, all the Inquiry Commission set up by Myanmar government  in the past have not met the standard requirements of international laws and not capable of leading to the criminal prosecution of all of those responsible and address the root causes to end the cycle of violence and attacks. This ongoing Rohingya crisis on the ground therefore requires strong international actions right now. We should not let any more lives lost by weakening the actions and soft talking with this same terror  government and perpetrator authorities. The roles of United Nations, its laws, responsibilities and actions, their leadership roles and solidarity, foreign responsibilities, should not be compromised in this matter.

The attacks from 25 Aug 2017 in Mayu region (Maungdaw, Buthidaung and Rathedaung townships) in Northern Rakhine state by government armed forces jointly with Rakhine armed force- Rakan Liberation Party (ALP) and government trained Rakhine gangs, used fight helicopters, tanks, machine guns, rocket launchers and land mines that killed more than 43,000 innocent villagers involving babies, children and elderly people. Women and girls as young as aged 12 were brutally raped in front of their relatives and in the public and some of them were shot dead and slaughtered, children including babies were also slaughtered, burnt and buried alive, and drown to death.

The MSF report showed about 10,000 dead among the arrivals of just in the first month. According to the ASEAN Parliamentarians for Human Rights (APHR) cited data from the Bangladeshi government that puts the number of lost parents as high as 43,700 people.  The actual death toll is significantly higher than the reports on the account of the number of parents lost for current about 55,000 orphans plus family members who lost their husband, wife, children, and siblings.
Cases of looting goods and cash, crops and animals, arrests including children and people who teaching Rohingya kids, distributing rations, language support workers, medical assistance providers, bearing phones, having radio and foreign contacts, are very common.
Up to date, more than 400 villages of total about 485 villages have been completely razed down and the government forces bulldozed the remnant parts of the buildings and houses by following days.
Nearly 700,000 out of estimated 780,000 Rohingyans were forced into Bangladesh thru ravines and jungles.
The remaining Rohingyas are horribly trapped and facing frequent attacks, deadly starvation and Rohingya lands are clearing and replacing with mega projects and military base camps.  

The NLD government has been deliberately lying situation on the ground and bulldozing the crime evidences of military forces. The 14 years sentence for the two Reuters journalists (Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo) who discovered one of the many massacres from Inn Din village and jailing of a deputy police captain Moe Yan Naing for testifying in a Yangon court by 20 April 2018 about setting up the arrest of two journalists and how he led the attacks across many villages, are part of how the NLD government’s attempt of erasing the evidences.

(one of the massacre discovered from Inn Din village by two Reuters journalists)

The fact is that despite the government fancily fingers onto the small number of Rohingya armed resistant group (ARSA), the ARSA not actually existed in most of those over 400 villages destroyed. The government’s  attacks not targeted ARSA, nor arrest any of ARSA members even though the ARSA has been in the region for over two years. In the other hand, the actions done by ARSA in 30 different areas were also part of minor defense after the government armed forces provoked various forms of brutalities from 5 of Aug 2017. Otherwise, the actions of ARSA done same as other armed ethnic groups defending against the government armed forces' ongoing brutalities.

Similar attacks in Oct 2016 under the banner of so call 'clearance operation', the government trained Rakhine people and armed members of Arakan Liberation Party were actively involved in the operation and began with physical tortures, violent rapes, looting, extortion, destruction of properties and religious buildings, arbitrary arrest and imprisonment of about 800 Rohingyans involving children as young as aged 12, killing over hundred of innocent Rohingya villagers and over 90,000 villagers were forced into Bangladesh.

Vigilante Attacks originated From 8 of June 2012, razed down about (120) religious buildings, over (23,000) houses from (95) villages across (13) different townships of Arakan state, killing over 10,000 of Rohingyans and Kamans mostly from Sittwe region, displacing about 200,000 Rohingya and Kaman people and about 110,000 of whom are  in 13 to 15 camps of Sittwe (Akyab) city and the rest about (65,000) those from other 8 regions in 26 camps are in aid workers unreachable areas. It been over six years now our Rohingyas and Kamans of Rakhine (Arakan) state have been totally excluded, segregated, confined systematically with blockage of aid and ration supplies and dying up in concentration camps.

In the attacks, the government authorities were directly involved by deploying the securities forces and joining the attacks vigilantly on the ground, introducing (laws and orders, curfew) and trapping the Rohingya villagers, openly allowing the aggressive armed Rakhine people trespassing and attacking of innocent unarmed Rohingya villagers. The attacks were very well planned that dispatching the gang members everywhere across Arakan, supplying one factory made arms such as arrows and knives, looting (goods, cash, crops and animals) and razing houses, allowing security forces to shot the Rohingyas, bulldozing the buildings those were not destroyed by following day and seizing lands of Rohingyans which were burnt down, disposing the  displaced Rohingya victims into concentration camps, blocking of aid and foods supplies, destroying previous identities and forcing to accept foreigner identity in the mid of humanitarian crisis.

The attacks not end with Rohingya and Kaman in Arakan state, but rapidly extended to different other muslims living in central Burma. From late 2012, with the active incitements and intimidation of ex-prisoner monk Wirathu and his guider well known Abbot Tidagu, the attacks swiftly spread across Yangon, Mandalay, Pagu, Saigaing, Magwe regions where killing hundreds, and displacing tens of thousands and burnt down thousand of houses. Some radical nationalist Burman Buddhist people have proudly declared and designated some areas as muslim free villages and many of those displaced Burmese muslims are still not allowed to relocate in their village of origin. 

It made very clear that the attacks target not only Rohingya but entire muslim population of Burma. There are other ethnic groups in Rakhine state called Kaman who are recognized within 135 ethnic groups but they too were ended up similarly, pushed into concentration camps and labeled as ''illegal immigrants''.
There are uncounted numbers of Rohingyans and Kamans have been killed, arrested and imprisoned during their escape from northern Arakan state thru inland waters and by lands. Many groups including children and women were arrested on the arrival to central regions of Burma.

In 1994-95, the command of former S.G  (1) Gen. Khin Nyunt under the dictator Than Shwe (SLORC) government, taken away about 4,000 youths from  northern regions and they never returned dead or alive, forced about 10,000 Rohingyas fled into Bangladesh, seizing of Rohingya lands and replaced with new settler Rakhine people and convicted Burman prisoners.

And the government continued seizing, demolishing, vandalizing of historic buildings, villages of Rohingya and replaced with new settlers and military base camps. According to Jamil Ahmed (an asylum seeker in Australia and a former supervisor of UNHCR Maungdaw), most of Rakhine villages today found in Maungdaw and Buthidaung were built on Rohingya people ‘lands under Model Village Settlement programs and they were never existed before 1990s.

Nagamin Operation in 1978 under dictator Ne Win (BSPP) government, killing in confrontation, sinking the ships load of Rohingyans and thousands of Rohingyans jailed from various parts of Arakan state, seizing and vandalizing Rohingya lands, historical buildings.

Step by step, years after years, the tyrant central rulers have achieved its strategies of eradication of Rohingya and Kaman from their home lands. It began with erasing our identity, seized our lands, destroying our properties, looting and rapes, arrest, detention and killing our people.

Becoming of De-facto Stateless & Repatriation Deal

The government introduced 1982 citizenship laws and conducted various forms of population checks and forcing Rohingyas and Kamans to accept foreigner identity, seizing and destroying their residential documents. It is the government authorities who are intentionally not allowing the Rohingyas to recourse to become new citizenship and also not accepting of the historical evidences and primary resources of Rohingya that prove the very earlier existence prior to 1823 and automatically qualified to be citizen and ethnic group under 1982 citizenship laws.
Following year of 1983, Gwa, Taungup, Tandwe and Ponnagyuan townships were defined as muslim-free-zones by the  government that officially offering a killing license to Rakhine people. Hundreds of Rohingyas and Kamans those captured in these regions were brutally murdered and buried alive by Rakhine people.

Today, over a million of Rohingya people have been forced into foreign countries and less than 100,000 Rohingyans left in northern regions (Maungdaw, Buthidaung and Rathedaung townships), another about 300,000 Rohingyas and Kamans left in systematic confinement including about 150,000 people in 42 concentration camps across Sittwe and Southern regions.

The Repatriation Agreement signed between Bangladesh and Myanmar is the third time after 1992 and 1978. Many Rohingyans refugees today reloaded in Bangladesh are repatriated former refugees of 1978 and 1991 and having bitter experiences of repatriations.
On the return in the past, repatriated Rohingyans were forcefully issued the Temporary Registration Card known as (White Card) with promises of relocation, rehabilitation, citizenship rights, lifting restriction. The promises are never delivered and the government slowly achieved issuing of White Card to the overall population in Northern Rakhine state and placed tougher restriction on traveling.

Latest group arrested on 23 May 2018, included Ma Hla Pyu (a first year uni student, volunteer teacher at Kyauk-Ta-Lone displaced camp of Kyaukpyu township), bearing valid National Identity (not described race), speaking fluent Burmese and Rakhine language,- has been charged one year with hard labour very instantly on 25 May 2018 by Taunggup court.

Later, the White Card came to introduce in Southern Arakan (SRS) and many acting Rohingya leaders from both Southern and Northern regions were detained for resisting it. It was not successful in Southern regions until 2002 and therefore the government changed the card's colour, some written words and forced to have each household to bear at least one that written Bengali race, or mix or non-description of race.

Lately after June 2012 crisis, the government planned to issue same type of foreigner identity with new name (National verification cards- NVC) By laws, the NVC card issuing is for verification of the undocumented non-citizens therefore it is nothing to do with Rohingya people who have been issued nationality identities, recognized as an ethnic group and having records of inhabitant.

It is also note that many Rohingya and Kaman people who were forcefully issued NVC cards, too are subjected to restrictions of travelling, education, medication, access to food and waters, livelihood and facing arbitrary imprisonment and abuses.

Signing the repatriation deal with Bangladeshi government and the MoU with UNDP and UNHCR that have no guarantee the recognition of Rohingya identity, citizenship right,  relocation, rehabilitation, lifting restriction. The Rohingya body not included for discussion and consultation in the process and the deals also violate the international refugee law and international human rights law. As well as, the deals are nothing more than a delusive task to topple international pressures from the account of genocide, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity. By laws, these heinous crimes should not be forgiven by ICC with the excuse of repatriation and or with other excuses.
Kachin civil society organizations who are suffering from large-scale violations of international law have also called on the United Nations Security Council to do their job’ and refer Burma to the International Criminal Court. 
The influence of China and Russia therefore should not be a barrier tool in exercising the UN’s existing laws and powers in order to save over  a million of population from genocide and ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity.  We call the current Chinese president Xi Jinping who experienced Mao’s ruthless persecution during his young age to support justice for Rohingya and other minorities of Burma.
In case other countries insist or support the Bangladesh government's repatriation deal, these countries will require to create- it is a ‘’Protected Return’ and to engage to ensure the Myanmar government undertake its said tasks to be delivered and materialized firstly with the remaining Rohingyans and Kamans in the country  including those in 42 concentration camps.

For decades, the majority of the entire people and the government authorities are jointly denying our existence, horribly terrorizing and actively attacking of our people from all cornersFor Rohingya, we are counting the deaths, destruction, attacks, rapes, arson and massive displacement day by day. The Rohingya people therefore in need of a Safe zone (or) Statehood (or) Protectorate (or) Autonomy state, investigation by United Nations Inquiry Commission and urgent referral to ICC.  But not a repatriation, nor another shifty commission of NLD government.

Repeating nature of Rohingya tragic is an indication of failure again by the United Nations and the international communities. The UNSC must show solidarity and achieve justice for the world most persecuted and neglected Rohingya victims and pave pathway to end the widespread ongoing cycles of violence and brutalities in Myanmar.

We would like to call all member nations of the United Nations particularly member nations of Security Council, and international communities to unite together:
1) To take effective and immediate actions onto the terror government of Myanmar and its authorities.
2) To investigate properly by the UN Inquiry Commission and refer those perpetrators to ICC.
3) To create a Protected Return of Rohingya refugees into Protected Lands to guarantee the lost rights and dignity of Rohingya people.
4) To release all muslim political prisoners from central Burma and thousands of Rohingya prisoners involving children mostly detained in Sittwe Central Jail, Buthidaung Jail and many others detained in police lock-up and military camps.
5) To support Rohingya themselves to eventually establish a Safe zone (or) a Statehood (or) Protectorate state (or) Autonomy state thru Security Council’s R2P Resolution.
6) To cut business ties, suspend military aid and ban entry visa of Ms. Suu Kyi, military generals and their family members visiting, studying and investment.

We would kindly request governments around the world particularly muslim nations to stay alert over China and Russia and to boycott their products and investments in case their power misused in Rohingya affairs.
We also would like to remind that the repatriation should not be camp to camp. As part of the development, the UNHCR and UNDP must make sure the Myanmar government lift all kind of restrictions, segregation, discrimination and barriers. Also to guarantee equal rights and citizenship once for all, relocation to places of origin, rehabilitation and to progress this plan with the remaining Rohingya and Kaman population who are trapped including those in concentration camps across Arakan state.
