8:02 am
a dehumanizing regime that amounts to apartheid the new amnesty report is based on a two year investigation that aims to reveal the cause of the current crisis that accuses. a segregated where henschel in an open air prison by confining them to their villages and restricting their freedom of movement given rights organization also concluded men are authorities treatment of the head amounts to apartheid the scribing rakhine state is a crime scene or head to living in myanmar also denied citizenship on the basis of their ethnicity many are deleted from official records making it almost impossible for those who have fled the country to return home we do have reporters covering this story ten for a hard reason cox's bizarre to refugee camp and bangladesh first let's check in there with scott hyde learned he is live in me and mar so scott any reaction out of me and mark to this report. michele nothing yet and quite
8:03 am
honestly we're not expecting anything to come out from the government here in myanmar that is because you know we've seen these countless reports human rights organizations issuing reports specifically about what's been happening with the right hinge a flow of refugees over six hundred thousand fleeing into bangladesh over the last couple of months they haven't responded to those and in previous reports like we see now with this and this international port detailing the living conditions the situation for the ranger looking back a couple of years they haven't really looked at those either or commented on those either i should say and what so we're not expecting that you know there's a meeting going on in myanmar right now with fifty plus foreign ministers from asia and from europe you know it's been discussed on the sidelines it'll be interesting as a press conference today is the final day of that they'll be a press conference in a couple hours time kind of wrapping up the meeting you know the issue might be brought up but don't expect range as a term to come out of anyone's mouth who officially represents myanmar's government that's a term
8:04 am
a title they don't use so be interesting to see the other foreign ministers when they speak at the end of this meeting if they use that term. when they discuss the issue but again right now we don't expect any kind of reaction to this and it's the international reporters ok. ok so sky in this report it calls rakhine state a crime scene you have been to rakhine state what have you seen there. yeah and specifically in these i.d.p. camps internally displaced persons camps we went to them several times multiple times and in the way that they're described in this amnesty report is accurate based on what we can confirm and that is when you go into these camps there is a fence there is a border check when you go in and those who are inside put inside can't leave freely there's no freedom of movement and this is something that has been the case for definitely two years as detailed in this report and i can attest to that at least for the last year and a half running and what's interesting too is that over that year and
8:05 am
a half that have been going into these camps the numbers have been growing steadily to you know there were a hinge of villages peppered throughout and i'm speaking specifically around the sit way area the capital of rakhine state and when there are other attacks before this august twenty fifth attack more revenge or rounded up and put into these id peak camps or security around these rivkin just villages were tightened so absolutely they did not have freedom of movement and again now we don't know really what the situation's been like over these last couple of months because any access for media and any n.g.o.s or any humanitarian organizations in the rakhine state has been heavily heavily controlled by myanmar's government which show absolutely which is why the findings of this reporter so remarkable because access is difficult scott. thank you. let's go live now to temper chaudhry who joins us from cox's bazaar on the bengals ash me and maher border where people have been seeking refuge refuge so what are the conditions like there and the people that you have talked to there there do they they want to go home.
8:06 am
well first of all let me tell you like we were interviewing people who crossed over to bangor that's within the last four days so different points now most of them we interviewed say that look we are not only restricted if we get out way that detained space of the main focus it taken away some unknown destination we don't know where that take them away one man in my eyelid if what i said that he his seven year old son was taken away by the me and my security forces that burned their villages they're not allowed to come out to the congo out shopping that need spatial very thick ation caught in order to roam around don't have access to a hospital a school the basically confined in a ghetto like atmosphere fans start on by security forces when they get the chance to scape at night they come to the jungle area and then wait for the optimum time to cross into bangladesh which could take some time you know days of walking from their villages into bangladesh and then come find themselves in zero man's land
8:07 am
this is what they face every other day when the cross into buying of this now the international rescue committee and the beginning of this month say that they expect two hundred thousand more refugees to cross over to bangladesh in coming days and months that's not highly exaggerated because we spoke to a lot of the refuges on this say that look at a thousand people stranded hiding in the jungles in the beaches to congo back definitely but they're looking to come inside buying of those that come find boats sometimes they make makeshift rafts with plastic items or other materials on the try to cross into buying of this so this is very much a real situation on the ground even though a lot of the international community and me on my especially trying to downplay that the situation is stable now that is definitely not the case she hasn't even mentioned the wardrobe refugee crisis in this meeting and they genda it is not even in the draft that general fifty one countries made between europe and asia so that . she is trying to change the narrative from humanitarian crisis and ethnic
8:08 am
cleansing into a narrative off immigration and extremism the bang of the foreign minister took a poke at our saying that people should be coarse and about rise of nationalism and the false pretext. three of them on this context ok life for us and cox's bazar tanvir thank you very much anna neistat is senior director for research with amnesty international she joins us live from bangkok and we appreciate your time so the the findings in this report the language in this report is some of the most stark yet that has been used about what has been happening to their attention. and it's been difficult to get reporting out of there because of limited access this is been a two year investigation talk to me about how you all got access to get this information. as you said it was very moment just
8:09 am
to go we did have access at some points north to all of the areas that we wanted to reach but we did conduct for field visits and interviewed hundreds of people in various parts of reckoning state and in addition we did very detailed legal analysis and this combination of facts collected on the ground and legal analysis allowed us to come to this conclusion that what is currently happening in has been happening in myanmar specifically in relation to amounts to the crimes against humanity of a part of seed so there's you know talk about repatriation and the birth going back to me and mark how can people be having that discussion when there hasn't even been given enough discussion as to why this is happening and why it continues to happen what why would they want to go home if the issues have not
8:10 am
been addressed. exactly well on one hand they do have the right to go home and from our interviews conducted with refugees in bangladesh we do know that myanmar is still their home and that's where they want to go but this is partially why we're trying to draw attention right now at the heart of this crisis to the system that has been in place and that has to be addressed before we can talk about it with rights and dignity and protection this is why we are currently calling for real specific measures to dismantle the system of sigrid geisha and discrimination that amounts to a party and before any serious talk about repatriation can take place they are our correspondents heiler who was on just just a few minutes before you is covering this this conference annual conference the asia europe conference and he says that even their public officials are very
8:11 am
delicate with the language they use so as not to be offensive to me and mar officials is everyone tiptoeing too much around what's going on how can there be accountability if that's the case. well. it's probably a good word to describe it and that's something that has been particularly appalling both in relation to the latest wave of violence that drove hundreds of thousands of huge across the border but also in relation to the ongoing system of a party that we describe in our report i think the world is way too willing to buy into the restoration presented by the myanmar authorities about the need to combat terrorism and the need to establish security and that's why they felt it was a very important moment to remind both myanmar officials and their international counterparts that absolutely no considerations be it security or the need to
8:12 am
convert terrorism can justify the own goal in crimes against humanity to justify the system of apartheid so where what can be the turning point what has to happen for there to be a turning point and this we have been hearing about this for years and it gets worse and worse worse and. well i think our recommendations and calls are two fold on one hand of course as always where i feeling at the first place to the myanmar government to address laws and regulations and policies and practices that established the system of the first place but also to bring to justice those who are responsible for parthiv and for all the crimes against humanity that we have documented but we are also calling on the international community there are very specific measures that international community can take such as imposing a global arms embargo to address the abuses by the myanmar military such as
8:13 am
conditioning any developmental aid on the principle of nondiscrimination and such as should the myanmar government fail to bring those responsible to justice using other mechanisms international internationalized courts and universal jurisdiction mechanisms to bring to justice those responsible for crimes against humanity. and in a stat really good work thank you for coming on to talk us through it we appreciate it very much. thank you. yes president donald trump has designated north korea a state sponsor of terrorism travel also promised more sanctions against pyongyang that secretary of state rex tillerson says washington has not given up on resolving the nuclear crisis on the korean peninsula through diplomacy. reports from washington d.c. . president trumps of the designation of north korea as a sponsor of terrorism was long overdue should have happened a long time ago should happen years ago in addition to threatening the world by
8:14 am
nuclear devastation north korea has repeatedly supported acts of international terrorism including assassinations on foreign soil. however this announcement wasn't a certainty some officials at the state department were reported to the north koreans did not meet the legal definition of a state sponsor of terrorism two cases of them cited during the deliberations the killing of kim jong un's half brother adam a lazy an airport and the treatment of american student also a woman who died of his injuries after being released from north korean custody neither represent terrorism they argued nonetheless more sanctions will now be announced by the treasury department there it's unclear this will prove to be anything more than a symbolic measure given all of the sanctions that have already been levied against pyongyang something the secretary of state alluded to i don't want to suggest to you that the designation is suddenly going to put a whole new layer of sanctions olympia's again i think we already have north korea
8:15 am
so heavily sanctioned in so many ways with the u.n. resolutions that have been undertaken but this will close a few additional loopholes all analysts are attempting to discern a comprehensive strategy for north korea from the trumpet ministration i think it's disappointing trump came to washington as an outsider and i really thought that maybe there was some chance that he could have a policy towards north korea that would be different and more creative than the one . implementing. the north koreans have said they would end the nuclear tests and resume negotiations if the u.s. and its military exercises with south korea the u.s. has ruled that out so in the meantime the administration is once again relying on sanctions and harsh rhetoric. washington tens of thousands of haitian immigrants are facing deportation from the united states most are allowed
8:16 am
in after the two thousand and ten earthquake which destroyed much of haiti at their status was only temporary and the top administration says conditions on the island have improved enough for them to go home and gallacher reports some little haiti and miami. when haiti was hit by a devastating earthquake in two thousand and ten thousands left for the u.s. and were offered temporary protected status over the decades the programs helped almost half a million people from nations ravaged by natural disasters and war for years it's been extended by presidential decree and has allowed recipients to legally live and work in the united states to deport them toward place where you know they will not be free in the case of haiti i didn't make it marlene bastiaan says removing the special status will have devastating consequences it will wreck their lives it will it will destabilize their families it will separate their families because we are talking about people who have been living here for an average of eight to twenty
8:17 am
years. they have deep roots in our communities those roots of found across the country many of those granted protection have u.s. born children who may be forced to leave with their parents who know a lot more that i need to get on the route i imagine they can't even sleep to see all your dreams crumble your efforts to have a home in this country and to have to leave it's inhumane others like jodeen say going back after so many years isn't safe or practical i lost my house in haiti. then i lost my house and i would not. want to go ahead. it plays those day in man and made by him ending the protected status of long established communities is seen by advocates as cruel and unnecessary for years over deportation has already led to an influx of haitians seeking asylum in canada
8:18 am
at times overwhelming local authorities for years those benefiting from temporary protected status have been referred to as living in limbo but in truth they've established businesses started families and become valued members of their communities those who've now lost their status face the prospect of being sent back to countries they no longer think of as home and they get like roger zero little eighty miami. still ahead on al-jazeera. go. for broke on the phone. with. the gulf crisis is topic number one in meetings between the u.s. secretary of state and qataris foreign minister. also hopes in the search for that missing archon tiny baby submarine. with.
