Refugee rights or­gan­i­sa­tions have hailed UNHCR’s de­ci­sion to halt the ces­sa­tion process for Chin refugees, but raised the need for more so­lu­tions to sup­port the com­mu­nity, the Star web­site re­ported.

A spokesman for Dig­nity for Chil­dren, a school for un­der­priv­i­leged chil­dren in Kuala Lumpur, said they are de­lighted by UNHCR’s de­ci­sion and hope it would not be re­voked or changed, es­pe­cially for the sake of chil­dren.

UNHCR had an­nounced in a state­ment on March 14 that it is re­vers­ing its ear­lier de­ci­sion to end refugee pro­tec­tions for eth­nic Chins, which would have seen many forced to re­turn to Myan­mar de­spite re­ports of con­tin­ued vi­o­lence.
