Trafficking of victimized Rohingyas fleeing persecutions in their homeland, Arakan, Myanmar, by boats have made enough international headlines. Enough has been talked about the human traffiking rings which extend right from Arakan to Bangladesh to Thailand to Malaysia to Indonesia. Yet, what still lacks is “Serious Actions” to bust these human trafficking rings, the truth behind it being that they (the trafficking rings) are hignly connected with and work in cooperation with the concerned authorities of the afore-mentioned countries. Therefore, they are openly violating Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons,UN General Assembly resolution 55/25 of 15 November 2000.
