Fortify Rights seeks probe into Rohingya leader Mohib’s killing

Fortify Rights has sought investigation into the murder of Rohingya human rights leader Mohib Ullah.

“This is a devastating loss for everyone who knew and loved Mohib Ullah, and it is also a tremendous loss for Myanmar, the Rohingya people, and the human rights movement more broadly,” said Matthew Smith, Chief Executive Officer at Fortify Rights in a statement issued from Washington on Wednesday night.

Mohib Ullah was committed to truth, justice, and human rights and the government of Bangladesh must immediately investigate anyone who may have been involved in this heinous crime and ensure justice.

Mohib Ullah is believed to have been in his late 40s. He was the chairperson of the camp-based human rights organization ARSPH. He is survived by his wife and children.

Fortify Rights spoke with one eyewitness to the murder and four Rohingya refugees familiar with the situation, including two members of ARSPH. Fortify Rights also reviewed photographs and videos of the crime scene.
