Hamzah advises Rohingyas not to be stubborn

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) has advised Rohingya people who have UNHCR cards not to be obstinate in their actions and to recognize that they are refugees.

The government sympathizes with the group’s position, but any activities that generate issues for the nation will be dealt with, according to Home Minister Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin.

They have UNHCR credentials, he continued, and shouldn’t think of Malaysia as a “cemetery” nation.

He said that they only aid for humanitarian reasons, but warns the group to not become too cocky; he added that he doesn’t want anybody to believe they’re above the law.

“We don’t want any more difficulties to occur, like the incident at a traffic signal in Kuala Lumpur where members of the public were insulted, and this should not be happening in our nation,” he said during the MEKAR Prihatin post-flood program in Taman Sri Nanding.

He stated this in response to a question about Rohingya youngsters spotted begging and behaving violently against vehicles in Cheras, which had just gone viral on social media.
