UNHCR to discuss refugee registration with Nepal government

Feb. 12 UN High Commissioner for Refugees in Nepal has  announced that it will discuss with the government of Nepal the issue of  those who are in Bhutanese refugee camps but are not entitled as refugees.

Speaking  in an interactive program with refugees here in Khudunabari camps yesterday,  new head of UN Refugee agency in Nepal, Mr Stephen Jacquemet said that the agency is deeply concerned about those people who are living in camps without being registered as refugees  for years now.

At times when the decision for those who filed applications in 2009 for refugee identity cards is pending, Jacquemet assured those non-registered refugees that Nepal government will issue Ids with  evidences whether the concerned is a refugee or not. He further said the agency is working out possible measures to find a just and durable outlet to this protracted refugee crisis.

In this connection, Bhutanese Refugee Repatriation Committee has appealed the head to help them pave way for those who want  to get back to Bhutan. According to the local media, BRRRC  representatives have stressed that repartition should be equally  addressed as resettlement and refugees should not be compelled to assimilate in their host country.

This is the first week-long visit made by Jacquemet to Bhutanese refugee camps a month after taking his office as a new head of Refugee agency in Nepal.
