ARSPH office closed down

On Friday, the Arakan Rohingya Society for Peace and Human Rights (ARSPH) office at Kutupalong Refugee camp has been locked down by host officials on a temporary basis to prevent access until further notice.

Headed by former teacher Mohib Ullah, the ARSPH was established in late 2017 to collect evidence of genocide by Myanmar’s military during its offensive in Rakhine.

“The CIC (Camp-in-Charge) directed us to padlock the office and not to gather in it without his prior consent,” Sayed Ullah said to the media. He added that all of the activities by the rights group had now stopped.
