Angelina Jolie Visits Rohingya Muslim Refugees In Bangladesh

Angelina Jolie visits Rohingya refugees at the world’s largest refugee camp in Bangladesh.

It was the UNHCR ambassador’s first visit to Bangladesh where the Cox’s Bazar camp houses the more than 700,000 Rohingya Muslims fled the Myanmar military and have poured into Bangladesh since August 2017.

Jolie spoke with reporters and to the people in the camp, saying, “The people responsible for human rights violations must be held accountable for their actions. While UNHCR is ready to support efforts to improve conditions, there have been very little progress on the ground. The Rohingya cannot return to Myanmar at this time.”

Drawing attention to the international community’s inaction on this matter, Jolie said, “I want to say, I am humble and proud to stand with you today. You have every right to live in security, to be free and practice your religion and to co-exist with people of other faith and ethnicities. You have every right not to be stateless. And the way you have been treated shames us all.”
