#EURefugeeCrisis – AUSTRALIA: Seems to have a simple policy for dealing with #refugees simply ‘MISTREAT ‘ them as witnessed at #Nauru and then they complain it’s closed and they can ship them out to a third world country but won’t name where – @AceNewsServices

#AceNewsReport – Nov.08: Are we witnessing a people trade in #refugees for a price as Australia to resettle mistreated asylum seekers but will not say where

Australia is set to find a third country to resettle hundreds of refugees and asylum seekers currently being held on Nauru and Manus Island off Papua New Guinea, a minister said Tuesday.

“We have been in negotiations with third countries for a long period of time and we are going to land a deal,” Immigration Minister Peter Dutton told reporters in Canberra, without providing a timeline for the resettlement.

Amnesty International said Labor's stance against the "callous and cruel legislation" was encouraging and asked the government to bring the refugees to Australia for processing and resettlement. (AFP/File)

Is the ‘Berm’ on the Syria-Jordan border a buffer zone plan?

Blocked from entering Jordan, some 70,000 Syrians are camped out near a border crossing known as Rukban, one of two locations where #refugees and #asylum seekers are marooned in a demilitarised zone a few kilometres wide on the Syria-Jordan border, demarcated by ridges of bulldozed earth known as berms.

GERMANY: Unknown perpetrators attack and set ablaze three #police cars in Dresden on Saturday night as numerous incident in last week mar unification day – @AceNewsServices

#AceNewsReport – Oct.02: Three police cars set ablaze in Dresden ahead of German Unity Day

Unknown perpetrators set fire to three police cars on Saturday night in the eastern city of Dresden, where security has been tightened for three days of events to mark 26 years since German reunification, police said on Sunday.

Two improvised bombs exploded in the city last week, one at a mosque and one at an international conference centre, and around 2,600 #police officers are on duty to safeguard events.

No-one was hurt in Saturday night’s blaze, which investigators believe was a politically-motivated act linked to the #police operation for the anniversary celebrations.

ITALY/FRANCE: Refuse access to #Refugees that are stranded in Ventimiglia, the last train station before the Italian French border @AceNewsServices

#AceNewsReport – Aug.07: Refugees stranded on border amid standoff between Italy and France

A dispute between Italy and France over the movement of migrants has resulted in a stand off at the border between the two countries.

Migrants have been left stranded in Ventimiglia, the last train station before the Italian French border.

The camp of around 50 people at Ventimiglia -- the town which became a flashpoint at the start of Europe's refugee crisis earlier this year -- was cleared because its occupants were using electricity and water without paying for it, police said. (AFP/Valery Hache)

NIGERIA: ‘ THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE KILLED & 1.6 MILLION HOMELESS AS BOKO HARAM ATTACKS INTENSIFY ‘

#AceNewsServices – NIGERIA:Dec.21- In this featured report on the rise of the Boko Haram Group AP reported today that thousands of members of Nigeria’s home-grown Islamic extremist Boko Haram group strike across the border in Cameroon, with coordinated attacks on border towns, a troop convoy and a major barracks.

‘ Boko Haram Group Recruitment ‘

Farther north, Boko Haram employs recruits from Chad to enforce its control in northeastern Nigerian towns and cities.

In Niger, the government has declared a “humanitarian crisis” and appealed for international aid to help tens of thousands of Nigerian refugees driven from their homes by the insurgency.

These recent events show how neighbouring countries are increasingly being drawn into Nigeria’s Islamic uprising.

Thousands of people have been killed in Nigeria’s 5-year insurgency and some 1.6 million people driven from their homes. A number of soldiers were sentenced to death on Wednesday for refusing to report for duty in an operation against the Boko Haram the African Mail reported.

In a similar case in September, 12 soldiers were sentenced to death for mutiny after firing on their commanding officer in the northeast city of Maiduguri, where troops are battling against Boko Haram.

Both sentences are subject to approval by top army brass, but there has so far been no indication that senior officers oppose the rulings.

Poor military equipment
Frontline troops have consistently complained that they lack the weapons and other supplies needed to face Boko Haram in insurgent strongholds.

The Islamists, waging a five-year uprising to create a caliphate in northern Nigeria, are known to have tanks, rocket propelled grenade launchers and other heavy weaponry, while troops have reported lacking ammunition for basic assault rifles. 

These series of attacks as outlined blow have continued and are continuing with no end in sight.

WASHINGTON: ‘ RELEASES SIX GUANTANAMO PRISONERS BEING SENT TO URUGUAY ‘

#AceWorldNews – WASHINGTON – Dec.07 – Six prisoners held for 12 years at Guantanamo Bay have been sent to Uruguay to be resettled as refugees, the U.S. government announced Sunday AP reported. 

This was involved an agreement that had been delayed for months by security concerns in the Pentagon and political considerations in the South American country.

The six men – four Syrians, a Tunisian and a Palestinian – are the first prisoners transferred to South America from the U.S. base in Cuba, part of a flurry of recent releases amid a renewed push by President Barack Obama to close the prison.

TURKEY: ‘ GOVERNMENT PROVIDING ID CARDS FOR SYRIAN REFUGEES TO WORK LEGALLY ‘

#AceNewsServices – TURKEY – With Turkey struggling to meet the basic needs of around 1.7 million Syrian refugees, the government is now planning to issue temporary identity cards for Syrians in order to allow their employment within a legal framework.  

' Turkish Government to provide temporary ID cards for employment of Syrian refugees '

The announcement of the plan came from Labour and Social Security Minister Faruk Çelik late on Nov. 11, while responding to questions from lawmakers during ongoing debates over the 2015 Central Governance Budget Law at Parliament’s Planning and Budget Commission.

“Now, there is the need for a decision by the Cabinet,” Çelik said, recalling earlier preliminary studies for the employment of Syrian refugees that were drafted by the Directorate General of Migration Management working under the Interior Ministry.

“They will be given a temporary identity card,” Çelik said, adding that their study outlined the employment of Syrian refugees in “vacant positions” and stressed that the proportion of Syrian refugee laborers at any work place must not be higher than 10 percent.

Whether such a limitation will ease widely held concerns about the employment of Syrian refugees as a form of cheap labour remains to be seen.

GERMANY: ‘ Police Start Investigation into Six Private Security Guards Accused of Assaulting, Humiliating and Abusing Asylum Seekers ‘

#AceNewsServices – GERMANY (Berlin) October 04 – German police Monday started an investigation into six private security guards at a refugee centre accused of assaulting and humiliating asylum seekers in ways that drew comparisons to abuse against Guantanamo Bay prisoners, with some nicknamed the SS The Local reported.

‘ German officers were Nicknamed the SS ‘ The Local reported’

Police also questioned hundreds of refugees after disturbing photo and video footage emerged at the weekend, including an image showing a security guard pinning a handcuffed Algerian man to the floor with his boot on the man’s neck.

Police said they launched their investigation after a journalist passed on to them cellphone video footage that showed security guards forcing an elderly man to lie on a mattress covered in vomit while threatening to beat him.

North Rhine-Westphalia state Interior Minister Ralf Jaeger pledged to pursue “with utmost determination” the case in the refugee centre in Burbach, about 100 kilometres (60 miles) south-east of Cologne, vowing to ensure “that this never happens again”.

“These are images of the kind we’ve seen from Guantanamo Bay,” said Frank Richter, police chief of the nearby city of Hagen, referring to the controversial US military detention facility in Cuba.

Chancellor Angela Merkel’s spokesman said that if investigations confirm that “refugees were abused and humiliated, then these would be repulsive acts”.

“We are a humane country. In Germany, the dignity of man is respected… and that must be true in asylum centres and refugee camps,” said Steffen Seibert.

‘ War Makes Rohingya Muslims Stateless Refugee’s ‘

#AceNewsServices – INDIA(New Delhi) – September 25 – A recent report on Myanmar’s Rohingya stuck in refugee limbo in India, has highlighted how people feel stateless. Here is one person’s story:

'Myanmar’s Rohingya stuck in refugee limbo in India'

‘Myanmar’s Rohingya stuck in refugee limbo in India’

When Kohinoor, a stateless Rohingya Muslim, fled her home in Myanmar after a wave of attacks by majority fanatic Buddhists, “We were chased out of Burma (Myanmar). We were chased out of Bangladesh. Now we are in India, the people here tell us that India is not our country.

So where will we go?asked Kohinoor, 20, sitting in a makeshift tent on a patch of wasteland in southern Delhi.

We don’t have any land of our own. Our children don’t go to the government schools as they refuse us admission. When we go to the hospital, they don’t admit people from our community,” said Kohinoor, who fled Myanmar two years ago with her 2-year-old daughter and her sister’s family.  

Though the Rohingya minority have lived for generations in Myanmar’s western state of Rakhine, the largely Buddhist government passed a citizenship law in 1982 which excluded them, denying them the identity cards required for everything from schooling and marriage to finding a job and getting a birth or death certificate. They became stateless.

Hundreds died in communal violence between Buddhists and Rohingya in 2012, worsening their plight, and in the last two years more than 86,000 Rohingya have left, fleeing to countries such as Thailand, Malaysia, India and Bangladesh.

The Rohingya are among an estimated 10 million stateless people worldwide. Their plight was discussed during the first global forum on statelessness opening in The Hague. This is ahead of an ambitious UN campaign starting in November to eradicate statelessness worldwide within a decade.

India, despite hosting some 30,000 registered refugees, has no legal recognition of asylum seekers, making it difficult for them to use essential services like schools and hospitals, human rights groups say – and the Rohingya community is among the most vulnerable.

According to the United Nations refugee agency (UNHCR), there are around 9,000 Rohingya registered in Delhi. Thousands more, unregistered, are living in other parts of the country such as Jammu and Hyderabad.

` Jordanian Police were Injured in Clashes with ` Syrian Refugees ‘ Burning Six Tents and Attacking a Police Station ‘

#AceWorldNews – SYRIA – ZAATARI CAMP – (RT) – April 06 – At least 22 Jordanian police were injured in clashes with Syrian refugees at the Zaatari camp, authorities reported.

No verified report on the number of injured among the protesters was immediately available.

The camp is the second-largest in the world and houses some 106,000 refugees, who fled the violence in Syria across the border.

The rioting crowd burned down six tents and two caravans before trying to attack police stations, Jordanian police said.

There are conflicting reports on what triggered the unrest. Jordan said it was caused by the detention of three people trying to leave the camp illegally, while the refugees said the riot started after police ran over a Syrian child.

` Refugees now Fleeing `War-Torn Syria ‘ into the Neighbouring City of `Lebanon ‘ have Surpassed 1 Million Today ‘

#AceWorldNews – BEIRUT- Lebanon – April 3 (UNHCR) – Report – The number of refugees fleeing from Syria into neighbouring Lebanon passed the 1 million mark today, a bleak milestone exacerbated by rapidly depleting resources and a host community stretched to breaking point.

Just over three years after Syria’s conflict began, Lebanon has become the country with the highest per capita concentration of refugees worldwide, struggling to keep pace with a crisis that shows no signs of slowing.

Refugees from Syria now equal almost a quarter of the resident population.
