On Tuesday, a Court in Malaysia ordered halt to the planned deportation of 1,200 Myanmar migrants to hear the appeal by two human rights groups, which said that the migrants included refugees, asylum seekers, and minors.

The order by the Court, succeeding a legal bid by Amnesty International Malaysia and Asylum Access Malaysia, came immediately after the migrants were transported to a naval base where three Military Ships of Myanmar were waiting to deport them home. Katrina Jorene Miliamanv, Amnesty International Malaysia director said, “In light of the court ruling, the government must respect the court order and ensure that not one of the 1,200 individuals is deported today.”

On Wednesday, the court will be hearing the appeal stated Amnesty further urging the Government to reconsider the plan of sending the migrants back home, where violation of Human Rights is high following a February 1 Military Coup that disposed of the Nation’s leader Aung San Suu Kyi.
