US Human Rights Watch seeks dignified return of Rohingya refugees to Myanmar

WASHINGTON: New York-based Human Rights Watch says Myanmar has a long way to go before it can demonstrate it is seriousness about making necessary reforms for voluntary and dignified returns of Rohingya refugees.

HRW's deputy Asia director Phil Robertson said Rohingya who go back still face the persecution and abuses, which forced them to flee.

He said the treatment of these Rohingya refugees should be a warning sign to those who believe the Myanmar authorities are ready to ensure safe returns.
