Restless refugees


Bhutanese refugees languishing in camps in eastern Nepal are getting impatient. In a petition signed by 1,933 refugee families in Khudunabari-the first camp where field verification has been completed by the Bhutan Nepal Joint Verification Team-they say that there appears either or both the governments are deliberately delaying justice. Now that they've completed their part of the deal by submitting necessary papers, the families have urged both governments to make public the results of the field verification and to announce a timeframe for their repatriation to Bhutan. They have urged the JVT to resume verification in the remaining six refugee camps and asked the international community to encourage both countries to get over with the task. Field verification of refugees at Khudunabari started on 26 March, 2001 following the 11th round of bilateral talks in December 2000. The last Khudunabari family was screened on 15 December 2001
