Burma closures camp

A senior UN official has said that any coercion of Burmese cyclone victims to return home is completely unacceptable.

Terje Skavdal’s remarks follow reports that Burma’s military government had begun to evict homeless families from some government-run emergency camps. It has given them bamboo poles and tarpaulins and told them to go and rebuild their lives, say reports.

An estimated 2.4m people remain homeless and hungry following Cyclone Nargis, which struck on 2 May. Mr. Skavdal, head of the UN Office for the Co-ordination of Humanitarian Affairs, said he could not confirm the camp closures but pointed out that the agency did not endorse premature return to areas with no services.

“People need to be assisted in the settlements and satisfactory conditions need to be created before they can return to their place of origins,” said Mr. Skavdal. “Any forced or coerced movement of people is completely unacceptable.”

After the cyclone the Myanmar gangsters on uniform kill the survivors themselves!
