As part of BLAST's ongoing efforts to make the legal system more accessible to Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh, Taqbir is conducting research on the extent to which camp based legal services under the SHEBA Project have been able to utilise safeguards under the existing legal framework to address the justice needs of Rohingya women and girls, and the key barriers faced by legal aid providers therein.

for rohingya women who claim maintenance, the family courts have not entertained their claims on the grounds that the men in the camps do not have any income to be able to pay maintenance and further provision is being made by the govt. however in violence cases the police and the criminal courts and tribunals are accepting these . but in more minor matters, of grievous hurt or assault these are not going forward through the formal system.
Sara Hossain
46:40
TRANSLATORS grateful if you can translate from the text.
Toobah Choudhari
47:34
Thank you Sara
Sara Hossain

in some cases the police are not accepting the complaints. where there are cases regarding online speech, eg pornograpy control act, where eg a rohingya girl’s naked picture are being posted the police do not accept these, and the courts also do not accept them. the only tribunal for dsa cases
Bina D'Costa

Thanks for the question Bina Apa. As part of the SHEBA Project, BLAST partnered up with Naripokkho to train field based women facilitators to work with survivor groups and inform them about the availability of legal aid services within the camps. This is an important first step which made our mediation possible, as these facilitators work hard to build trust and confidence with Rohingya women and girls, so they feel confident enough to visit our legal aid hubs and file an application for mediation. Recently BLAST has also partnered up with UNHCR to expand our legal awareness efforts.

Alvi Hakim
01:38:26
Hi All, please feel free to drop me an email: m.hakim@nexalegalasia.com to discuss further on a concerted refugee pledge between NGOs, law firms, and private corporations to build an alliance of all relevant stakeholders working towards building an advocacy programme and actually go into the camps and do the training within the camps. Example: "Know Your Rights" project which I helped develope in Thailand during my time with DLA Piper. PILnet in collaboration with UNHCR and other organisations have build a global refugee pledge, and this is one of the concept notes engaging interested organisations to sit and discuss through Pro Bono roundtables. Please find below the document. Great Break out session!
