Gambia files Rohingya genocide case against Myanmar at UN court
2019-11-12
[Al Jazeera] The Gambia
... The Gambia is actually surrounded by The Senegal on all sides but its west coast. It has a population of about 1.7 million. The difference between the two is that in colonial days Senegal was ruled by La Belle France and The Gambia (so-called because there's only one of it, unlike Guinea, of which there are the Republic of Guinea, Equatorial Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, New Guinea, the English coin in circulation between 1663 and 1813, and Guyana, which sounds like it should be another one) was ruled by Britain...
has filed a case at the United Nations
...a formerly good idea gone bad...
' top court accusing Myanmar of committing genocide against the Rohingya minority.

Lawyers for The Gambia said in a statement on Monday that the case also asks the International Court of Justice to urgently order measures "to stop Myanmar's genocidal conduct immediately".

The Gambia filed the case on behalf of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation.

Myanmar's military unleashed a brutal campaign against the Rohingya in August 2017 in response to attacks by an gang. More than 700,000 Rohingya fled to neighbouring Bangladesh to escape what has been called an ethnic cleansing campaign involving mass rapes, killings and burning of their homes.
So what actually happened was that, rather than spend years fighting an Islamic insurgency kicked off by the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army and a few clones, the Burmese just dumped the entire Rohingya population, which they considered invasive in the first place.
Ah. So ethnic cleansing instead of genocide. That’s a comfort.
The head of a UN fact-finding mission on Myanmar warned last month that "there is a serious risk of genocide recurring".

The mission also said in its final report in September that Myanmar should be held responsible in international legal forums for alleged genocide against the Rohingya, a majority-Moslem ethnic group that has long faced persecution in Buddhist-majority Myanmar.

Myanmar's UN ambassador Hau Do Suan last month called the UN fact-finding mission "one-sided" and based on "misleading information and secondary sources". He said Myanmar's government took accountability seriously and that perpetrators of all human rights
...which are usually entirely different from personal liberty...
violations "causing the large outflow of displaced persons to Bangladesh must be held accountable".

Ohio Authorities Seize Nearly 45 Pounds of Fentanyl: ‘Weapon of Mass Destruction’
2019-11-04
[BREITBART] Authorities seized almost 45 pounds of illegal fentanyl in Montgomery County, Ohio, during the week of October 21.

On their Facebook page Tuesday, the Regional Agencies Narcotics & Gun Enforcement (R.A.N.G.E) stated that 3 suspects involved in the alleged drug trafficking scheme were also arrested.

Shamar Davis,31, Anthony Franklin, 30, and Grady Jackson, 37, of Dayton face charges of "Possession with Intent to Distribute 400 or more grams of Fentanyl and Felon in Possession of a Firearm," according to the post.

In addition to the fentanyl, authorities also uncovered a suspected 3 pounds of methamphetamine, 1 pound of heroin, 3 firearms, and almost $30,000 in cash, according to NBC News.

Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost said the multi-million dollar drug haul could have devastated the surrounding area had it made its way into the community.

"The quantity of fentanyl in this case amounts to chemical warfare and a weapon of mass destruction," he commented, adding that "I applaud the work of our task force and our law enforcement partners ‐ this is an enormous amount of deadly drugs that will no longer be on our streets."

Man who advocated caning for adultery gets caned for adultery
2019-11-02
[CNN] An Indonesian man has been publicly flogged for adultery, under a draconian law he helped create.

Mukhlis, a member of the Aceh Ulema Council (MPU) in the deeply conservative Aceh province of Indonesia, received 28 lashes in front of a crowd on Thursday after being caught having an affair with a married woman. Like many Indonesians, Mukhlis goes by a single name.

His agency advises the local government on drafting and implementing religious laws.

A video by the AFP news agency shows him grimacing as each strike is delivered onto his back by a masked officer on a stage, in front of a handful of onlookers -- some of whom filmed on their cell phones. The woman with whom he was caught also received a series of lashes.

Aceh, the country's only region to impose Sharia law, uses caning to punish a series of offenses, such as homosexuality, drinking alcohol and having sex outside of marriage.

"We have clarified his identity and we proceeded with the investigation and handed over the dossier to prosecutors, and today we carried out the implementation of the flogging punishment," AFP reported Muhammad Hidayat, the Banda Aceh sharia police chief, as telling news hounds at the caning.

"A lot of things we can learn, but ultimately we have to enforce God's laws, especially on Islamic land like here," Muhammad Ramdan, a Banda Aceh resident, added.

The state's Sharia criminal code went into effect in September 2015, and a number of people have been caned under the laws.

Last year 15 people, including five women, received the punishment for a variety of crimes. Before that, two men were lashed 83 times for homosexuality.

"No matter who you are... if you violate (Islamic) law you will be whipped," Husaini Wahab, the deputy regent of the Aceh Besar municipality, told AFP after the latest caning.

Bangladesh
RAB arrests two suspected JMB members in Dhaka
2019-10-31
[Dhaka Tribune] Rapid Action Battalion (RAB) have arrested two suspected members of banned holy warrior outfit Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh
The JMB is said to be the youth front of Al Mujahideen, the parent organization that began working toward establishing Bangladesh as an Islamic state in the mid 1990s, which remains obscure and probably defunct today. Other organizations, such as Jama'atul Jihad, JMB, Jagrata Muslim Janata Bangladesh (JMJB), Harkat-ul-Jihad-al-Islami (HUJI), Hizbut Tawhid, Tawhidi Janata, Islami Jubo Shangha, Islami Shangha, Al Falah A'am Unnayan Shanstha and Shahadat-e al Hiqma are believed to be part of the Al Mujahideen network. The JMB at its peak was reported to contain at least 100,000 members, and an alleged 2,000-man suicide brigade, few of whom actually exploded. JMB allegedly received financial assistance from individual donors in Kuwait, UAE, Bahrain, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Libya. Reports have claimed that funding of JMB by international NGOs like Kuwait based Society of the Revival of Islamic Heritage (RIHS) and Doulatul Kuwait, Saudi Arabia based Al Haramaine Islamic Institute and Rabita Al Alam Al Islami, Qatar Charitable Society and UAE-based Al Fuzaira and Khairul Ansar Al Khairia. The top leadership of JMB was captured in 2005 and hung in 2007, which pretty much shot their bolt.

They were arrested from Mirpur's Rupnagar area of Dhaka early Wednesday.
“Stick ‘em up, boys, and come quietly, or we shall be forced to have an encounter.”
“Aieee! Not an encounter! We’ll come quietly, we will. Aieee.”
“Aieee! Quietly, yes. Aieeeeee!”
The arrestees are Shahjalal, 30, and Shamim, 28, from Barisal and Munshiganj.

RAB legal and media wing Senior Assistant Director Mizanur Rahman Bhuiyan said: "They are active members of JMB."

"We are questioning them and will soon take legal action."
“Sergeant Rafiq, send out for tea and biscuits, and a barrel of #4 mustache wax. It’s going to br a long night.”

...illegals doing the jobs good bad Bangladeshis won’t do...
"Earlier, they managed to include some Rohingyas in their group."
This explains the poor quality of miscreants they’ve been seeing recently. You get what you pay for, I always say.

Bangladesh
Rohingya man arrested in Bangladesh after $5m drug haul
2019-10-29
[Al Jazeera] Police in Bangladesh have arrested a Rohingya man with $5m of methamphetamine pills in their biggest narcotics haul this year, according to officials.

Special police staged a raid on a beach in the Cox's Bazar district on the border with Myanmar on Sunday following a tip that a trawler carrying the drugs would land there, a front man said on Monday.

The front man said 800,000 pills were found in sacks in the trawler and one Rohingya suspect was detained while several others escaped.

About 740,000 Rohingya arrived in Bangladesh after a Myanmar military crackdown in August 2017 and drug dealing has become a growing problem in the refugee camps in Cox's Bazar where they live.

The seizure was the biggest made this year of the methamphetamine pills, known as yaba, which have become a popular drug among young people in the nation of 168 million.

Since a crackdown was launched last year, more than 500 suspected narcos - including at least 25 Rohingya - have been rubbed out by police and security forces.

Bangladesh
Rohingya refugees agree move to Bangladesh island
2019-10-21
[DAWN] Thousands of Rohingya living in Bangladesh refugee camps have agreed to move to an island in the Bay of Bengal, officials said on Sunday, despite fears the site is prone to flooding.

Dhaka has long wanted to move 100,000 refugees to the muddy silt islet, saying it would take pressure off the overcrowded border camps where almost a million Rohingya live.

Some 740,000 Rohingya fled Myanmar in August 2017 in the face of a military crackdown, joining 200,000 refugees already in makeshift tent settlements at Cox's Bazar.

Bangladesh's refugee commissioner, Mahbub Alam, said officials overseeing the relocation would be posted to Bhashan Char island in the next few days.

"Approximately 6,000-7,000 refugees have already expressed their willingness to be relocated to Bhashan Char," Alam told AFP from Cox's Bazar, adding that "the number is rising".

He did not say when the refugees would be moved, but a senior Navy officer involved in building facilities on the island said it could start by December, with some 500 refugees sent daily.

, Pakistain, in May 2011.

On Wednesday evening, the Dhaka Metropolitan Police Counter Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CTTC) unit picked up Atiqullah, alias Asadullah, alias Zulfiqar, 49, and two of his associates, Mohammad Borhan Uddin Rabbani, 42, and Mohammad Nazim Uddin, alias Shamim, 43, from a playground near Boro Mosque in Nikunja 2.

During interrogation, Atiqullah told them about his meetings with bin Laden and other krazed killer leaders and his ties to al-Qaeda, according to CTTC sources.

Informed that several HuJIB men had gathered at a playground for a secret meeting, a CTTC team conducted a raid there, said Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Deputy Commissioner (Media) Masudur Rahman,on Thursday.

He also said Atiqullah was an organizing secretary of the committee of HuJIB formed by Mufti Hannan in 1996, and was later assigned to oversee the Baitul Mal and International Relations Department of the organization.

CTTC sources said that during the tenure of the last caretaker government, he went into hiding in Soddy Arabia
...a kingdom taking up the bulk of the Arabian peninsula. Its primary economic activity involves exporting oil and soaking Islamic rubes on the annual hajj pilgrimage. The country supports a large number of princes in whatcha might call princely splendor. When the oil runs out the rest of the world is going to kick sand in the Soddy national face...
and visited Pakistain multiple times for krazed killer activities.

in primary interrogation, police learned that Atiqullah has connections with krazed killer groups in other countries, including Pakistain, United Arab Emirates, and Saudi Arabia, sources at the CTTC said.

A CTTC official related to the investigation said Atiqullah also told police that he is a bomb specialist. After being exiled abroad for long, he returned to Bangladesh in March this year, and had been trying to contact old members of the krazed killer outfit to reorganize it.

He also had been trying to recruit new members to speed up HuJIB's activities in the upcoming days, he said.

The CTTC official said Atiqullah also made organizational visits to various places across the country, and raised money from both domestic and foreign sources, to mobilize the organization.

Najim, one of two other persons arrested besides Atiqullah, is a secretary of the HuJIB Dhaka Metropolitan South unit, while the other person arrested, Rabbani was given the responsibility of handling Feni district.

Recently, the three, Atiqullah, Najim, and Rabbani, were trying to reorganize the group, focusing on India's Kashmir
...a disputed territory lying between India and Pakistain. After partition, the Paks grabbed half of it and call it Azad (Free) Kashmir. The remainder they refer to as "Indian Occupied Kashmir".

and Rohingya issues, said the official.

DC Masudur Rahman said a case has been filed in this connection with Khilkhet cop shoppe under the Anti-Terrorism Act.

India-Pakistan
From terror, mingling with migrants to fake currency: How JMB made South India its playground
2019-09-27
[OneIndia] The arrest of Jahidul Islam alias Kausar has given the National Investigation to several clues as to how the Jamat-ul-Mujahideen had been operating in South India.

Islam is an accused both in the Burdwan and Bodhgaya blasts and he was arrested after nearly a five year chase. He along with his accomplice, Habibur Rehman were hiding in Karnataka at the time of their arrest.

Prior to this they have moved around several places in South India, which included Tamil Nadu, where they even tested rocket shells. Interestingly these were not the only arrests that were made in connection with the same module and case.

It may be recalled that in January 19, 2018, two more persons Abdul Karim and Mustafizur Rehman were arrested from the labour camp of Bengali speaking persons in Mallapuram in Kerala. Both were also of Bengal origin and were wanted in connection with the Bodhgaya case.

Intelligence Bureau officials tell OneIndia that this is not for the first time that turbans have come down South to hide. There have been several such instances reported in Kerala and Hyderabad as well. They tend to mix with the migrant population including the Rohingyas and continue to stay on in states such as Telangana, Kerala and Karnataka.

In Mallapuram, the members of the JMB were staying at a camp for a long time which was set up for Bengali speaking people. Even in Karnataka, their activities go unchecked as they tend to mingle with those who have migrated in search of work. There is also a concern with regard to the Rohingyas who have moved to various parts of the country in large numbers, including Karnataka. These turbans often use such persons as a shield and use such states as a safe haven.

The Bengal-Bengaluru connection is not restricted to terror alone. There has been a dedicated route between these two states which has been busted by the NIA which probing a case relating to fake currency.

The NIA's Hyderabad wing had in March 2018 arrested Saddam Hussain, a resident of Bengaluru who was found in possession of fake currency to the tune of Rs 26,000.

The NIA team also recovered two demonetised currency notes of the value Rs 1,000. The accused was allegedly circulating fake currency in various parts of his country after obtaining it from his contacts in Mada, West Bengal.

During investigation it was revealed that accused Saddam had travelled to Malda from Bangaluru on the instructions of Amirul Hoque and collected High Quality FICN from Roustam on four occasions.

First wave of migrants evacuated from Libya heads to Rwanda
2019-09-27
[AlAhram] The first evacuation flight of African refugees and asylum-seekers was set to arrive in Rwanda on Thursday in the latest effort to divert and care for thousands from the continent who failed in their efforts to reach Europe
...the land mass occupying the space between the English Channel and the Urals, also known as Moslem Lebensraum...
The East African nation's agreement to take in 500 people who have been trapped in crowded, dangerous Libyan detention centers has raised questions and concerns. It is not clear how long they will be held in Rwanda and what happens if no other country agrees to take them permanently.

``Refugees who will wish to stay in Rwanda permanently will be given asylum,'' Olivier Kayumba, permanent secretary in the ministry of emergency management and refugee affairs, told The News Agency that Dare Not be Named. Authorities said the people were in a bad state of health and media access to their arrival was restricted.

India-Pakistan
When JMB terrorists from Bengal test fired rocket shells in TamilNadu
2019-09-26
[OneIndia] The National Investigation Agency has made some major inroads after it arrested a key operative of the Jamat-ul-Mujahideen, Bangladesh.

Several details are trickling out after the NIA took into its custody JMB Terrorist Jahidul Islam alias Kausar, who is also an accused in the Burdwan and Bodhgaya blasts.

During his questioning, he told the NIA that he and his associates had test fired three rocket shells at Krishnagiri in Tamil Nadu. He said he and his associates, Habibur had prepared these rockets using a crude device. From here the NIA seized remnants of kabooms such as 8 batteries of 1.5 volt each, a hollow cylindrical carton used for launching the rocket shell and pieces of electrical wire.

He also said that he and his associates took shelter in various locations in South India. He said that the hideouts were at Aribele, Kadugodi, K.R.Puram, Chikkbanavara and Shikaripalya, Electronic City in Bengaluru.

NIA officials tell OneIndia that from the hideout in Electronic City, several incriminating articles meant to be used for preparation of IEDs and grenades such as two cuboid shaped batteries wrapped with plastic tape and electrical wire, one capacitor, three switches, one micro lithium cell, one plastic transparent box containing black colour chemical wrapped in a white paper, hand gloves, identity cards, rent agreement of one of the hideouts, handwritten letters in Bengali language, one digital camera and silver articles looted during dacoities committed in Bengaluru in 2018, have been seized.

Earlier the NIA arrested two persons in connection with the planning of a kaboom at the Bodh Gaya complex on January 19 2018. The arrested persons have been identified as Abdul Karim and Mustafizur Rehman, both residents of West Bengal.

They were arrested from the labour camp of Bengali speaking persons in Mallapuram in Kerala. The NIA says that the duo were hiding in this camp after planting the improvised bombs.
