WHAT'S IN THE NEW DEAL?

-

Bangladesh aims to start the repa­tri­a­tion process by Jan­uary 23, and said it will com­plete the process within two years. Un­der the deal, it will es­tab­lish five "tran­sit camps" to process refugees into two re­cep­tion cen­tres in Myan­mar. How­ever, the plan has been greeted with scep­ti­cism by NGOs, who have said the deal does not ad­dress ques­tions of safety, liveli­hoods and per­ma­nent re­set­tle­ment. The deal also does not cover the es­ti­mated 200,000 Ro­hingya refugees who were liv­ing in Bangladesh prior to Oc­to­ber 2016
