Janet Symes of Cafod says that clear mechanisms must be in place before any repatriation of refugees can beginTomorrow, the first of 2,200 extremely vulnerable Rohingya refugees face the prospect of being repatriated to Myanmar, where they fled brutal violence a year ago (Rohingya refugees flee camps in fear of forced repatriation to ‘unsafe’ Myanmar, 14 November). No refugee should be encouraged to return until their safety can be assured and they have the means to live a dignified life. Despite very difficult and cramped conditions in the camps in Bangladesh, many Rohingya refugees tell us that they would prefer to stay than risk their lives returning.

This requires further assurances that there are clear mechanisms in place to help ensure safe returns.Janet SymesHead of Asia, Cafod• Join the debate – email guardian.letters@theguardian.com Continue reading...
