Dhaka, Bangladesh: Rohingyas could hardly expect ‘good behavior’ at Bangladesh missions abroad as illegal intrusion of the Burmese citizens had caused a lot of problems in Bangladesh, the foreign Minister Dipu Moni, yesterday told in parliament.
Decent treatment of [the Rohingyas], at least by this government, is no longer possible. They enjoyed such treatment during the previous BNP-Jamaat government. Dipu Moni also told parliament in reply to a question from AL lawmaker Fazle Rabbi Miah who alleged that the Rohingyas were getting Bangladeshi passports from its missions abroad.
Rabbi also alleged that the Bangladesh ambassadors were not treating the expatriates well.
The minister rejected the allegations saying, ‘The Bangladesh missions abroad only renew passports.’
Dipu also trashed the allegation of poor performance of the envoys saying, “I have found most of the ambassadors very efficient.”
“In a few cases, it [misbehavior by ambassadors] can happen due to personal attitudes,” said the minister adding that the government could take action if there were specific allegations.
