CPB-Maoist asks UN, US, Nepal not to start refugee resettlement

KATHMANDU, Sept 7 - The Communist Party of Bhutan (Maoist) has urged the UNHCR, the United States and Nepal not to start the process of third country resettlement of the Bhutanese refugees languishing in Nepal.

Issuing a statement from an undisclosed location Friday, the Maoist organization in exile has also alleged that the recent violence in the refugee camps was due to the attempt of the UNHCR and the US government to muster popular support on the basis of money.

It has also warned that it will disrupt the resettlement process if they tried to start it.

The statement issued by Binod, a member of the Maoist organization, has also demanded the early release of the report prepared by the committee formed to probe the shootout at the Beldangi camp a few weeks back, compensation to the victims and action against the perpetrators.

Two refugees had died in the incident.

“If the report is not released then such an incident can recur,” the statement added.

The CPB (Maoist) has also denied its involvement in the attack on the secretary of the Beldangi-3 and burning some huts.

However, it has warned of a “physical offense against those spying against the party by giving the names of the party cadres to the UNHCR and the local administration linking them to the incident.”

Incepted in UNHCR-administered refugee camps in eastern Nepal and composed of refugees, the organization, which apparently takes inspiration from the “people’s war” launched by CPN-Maoists, calls for a “new democratic revolution” to overthrow the Bhutanese monarchy.

More than one hundred refugees of Nepali-origin are languishing at seven camps in eastern Nepal since early 90s after they were systematically evicted from their ancestral homes in southern Bhutan as part of the ongoing ethnic cleansing drive of the totalitarian regime in Thimphu.

Finally CPB has admitted they they have living members.
Their history says they only exist in papers and web sites.
In this content you can see above

"However, it has warned of a “physical offense against those spying against the party by giving the names of the party cadres to the UNHCR and the local administration linking them to the incident.”
"

This clearly indicates that the people that were recently arrested in Beldangi were their cadres.
Their cover is now blown up.
Now if any thing happens to people in Camps like Mr. Khanal and Mrs. Biswa, any one can kick their ass.

Please Note Their Names

1)Subash Acharya
2)Dilli Ram Ghorsai
3)Harka Singh Gurung
4)Shree Man Poudel
5)Sunder Acharya (Fuche Comrade)

Happy Kicking Asses !!

I feel third country is best for now to resolve the crisis of Bhutanese refugee.How long they need to wait ,they have spent 17 years in camp waiting they could be repartiated,but refugee learders did nothing during this whole time.So its not leader to decide their future ,refugee youths can themselves can decide their future .
