Food and shelter for Myanmar refugees: order from Government of Manipur

The Government of Manipur has issued an order banning local authorities and civil society from providing food and shelter to Myanmar refugees. By law, medical treatment can only be provided in the “human spirit” in the event of a “serious injury”. Orders were issued to the Deputy Commissioners of Chandel, Tengopal, Kamajong, Ukrul and Surachandpur districts to take appropriate action in relation to “illegal entry of citizens of Myanmar”.
