Yesterday, the president of Bangladesh Home Ministry’s law and order committee AKM Mozammel Haque disclosed that Bangladesh will install CCTV cameras in the Rohingya camps of Cox’s Bazar to monitor camp activity around the clock. In addition, fences and 24 towers will be built around the camps very soon.

Mr Haque said, “The Rohingyas are divided and fight among themselves. They are also engaged in the drug trade. There is international patronage of this and some non-governmental organizations are a medium for it. To keep such crimes in check, the Rohingya camps will soon have fences around them, 24 towers, and an adequate number of CCTV cameras will be installed. By these measures, their activities will be monitored 24 hours a day.”

He also added that “A small number of people in the Rohingya camps are involved in crime. They are involved in money laundering as well as drug dealing. However, drug smuggling is under control. But we want the situation to improve further.”
