Information received concerning a registration and verification exercise in Al-Hol and Roj camps located in North-East Syria where your nationals, primarily women and children, are currently deprived of their liberty. In these makeshift locked camps made up of unstable tent-like structures which collapse in strong winds or flood with rain or sewage, hygiene is almost non-existent: limited drinking water is often contaminated, latrines are overflowing, mounds of garbage litter the grounds, and illnesses including viral infections are rampant. Food, water, health care and essential non-food supplies are provided by under-resourced humanitarian groups and organisations. According to the Kurdish Red Crescent, at least 517 people, 371 of them children, died in 2019, many from preventable diseases, in Al-Hol camp alone. In August 2020, eight children under the age of five died in that camp in less than a week, with four caused by malnutrition-related complications and the others were due to dehydration from diarrhoea, heart failure, internal bleeding and hypoglycaemia, according to UNICEF. Covid-19 has increased these difficulties, with a reduction in the number of workers operating in the camp.

Dans ces camps de fortune fermés, constitués de structures vétustes qui s'effondrent sous l'effet de vents violents ou qui sont inondées par la pluie ou les eaux usées, les conditions sanitaires sont déplorables: l'eau potable est souvent contaminée, les latrines débordent, des monticules d'ordures jonchent le sol, et les maladies, y compris les infections virales, y sévissent. La nourriture, l'eau, les soins de santé et les produits non alimentaires essentiels sont fournis par des groupes et des organisations humanitaires aux ressources insuffisantes. Selon le Croissant rouge kurde, au moins 517 personnes, dont 371 enfants, seraient mortes en 2019, dont beaucoup de maladies évitables, rien que dans le camp d'Al-Hol. En août 2020, selon UNICEF, huit enfants de moins de cinq ans sont morts dans ce camp en moins d'une semaine, dont quatre à cause de complications liées à la malnutrition et les autres à cause d'une déshydratation due à la diarrhée, à une insuffisance cardiaque, à une hémorragie interne et à une hypoglycémie. Le Covid-19 a accru ces difficultés, en réduisant le nombre d’employés opérant dans le camp.

Information received concerning a registration and verification exercise in Al-Hol and Roj camps located in North-East Syria where your nationals, primarily women and children, are currently deprived of their liberty. In these makeshift locked camps made up of unstable tent-like structures which collapse in strong winds or flood with rain or sewage, hygiene is almost non-existent: limited drinking water is often contaminated, latrines are overflowing, mounds of garbage litter the grounds, and illnesses including viral infections are rampant. Food, water, health care and essential non-food supplies are provided by under-resourced humanitarian groups and organisations. According to the Kurdish Red Crescent, at least 517 people, 371 of them children, died in 2019, many from preventable diseases, in Al-Hol camp alone. In August 2020, eight children under the age of five died in that camp in less than a week, with four caused by malnutrition-related complications and the others were due to dehydration from diarrhoea, heart failure, internal bleeding and hypoglycaemia, according to UNICEF. Covid-19 has increased these difficulties, with a reduction in the number of workers operating in the camp.

Informations reçues concernant une opération d'enregistrement et de vérification dans les camps d'Al-Hol et de Roj situés dans le nord-est de la Syrie où vos ressortissants, principalement des femmes et des enfants, sont actuellement privés de liberté. Dans ces camps de fortune fermés, constitués de structures vétustes qui s'effondrent sous l'effet de vents violents ou qui sont inondées par la pluie ou les eaux usées, les conditions sanitaires sont déplorables: l'eau potable est souvent contaminée, les latrines débordent, des monticules d'ordures jonchent le sol, et les maladies, y compris les infections virales, y sévissent. La nourriture, l'eau, les soins de santé et les produits non alimentaires essentiels sont fournis par des groupes et des organisations humanitaires aux ressources insuffisantes. Selon le Croissant rouge kurde, au moins 517 personnes, dont 371 enfants, seraient mortes en 2019, dont beaucoup de maladies évitables, rien que dans le camp d'Al-Hol. En août 2020, selon UNICEF, huit enfants de moins de cinq ans sont morts dans ce camp en moins d'une semaine, dont quatre à cause de complications liées à la malnutrition et les autres à cause d'une déshydratation due à la diarrhée, à une insuffisance cardiaque, à une hémorragie interne et à une hypoglycémie. Le Covid-19 a accru ces difficultés, en réduisant le nombre d’employés opérant dans le camp.

Information received concerning a registration and verification exercise in Al-Hol and Roj camps located in North-East Syria where your nationals, primarily women and children, are currently deprived of their liberty. In these makeshift locked camps made up of unstable tent-like structures which collapse in strong winds or flood with rain or sewage, hygiene is almost non-existent: limited drinking water is often contaminated, latrines are overflowing, mounds of garbage litter the grounds, and illnesses including viral infections are rampant. Food, water, health care and essential non-food supplies are provided by under-resourced humanitarian groups and organisations. According to the Kurdish Red Crescent, at least 517 people, 371 of them children, died in 2019, many from preventable diseases, in Al-Hol camp alone. In August 2020, eight children under the age of five died in that camp in less than a week, with four caused by malnutrition-related complications and the others were due to dehydration from diarrhoea, heart failure, internal bleeding and hypoglycaemia, according to UNICEF. Covid-19 has increased these difficulties, with a reduction in the number of workers operating in the camp.

Information received concerning a registration and verification exercise in Al-Hol and Roj camps located in North-East Syria where your nationals, primarily women and children, are currently deprived of their liberty. In these makeshift locked camps made up of unstable tent-like structures which collapse in strong winds or flood with rain or sewage, hygiene is almost non-existent: limited drinking water is often contaminated, latrines are overflowing, mounds of garbage litter the grounds, and illnesses including viral infections are rampant. Food, water, health care and essential non-food supplies are provided by under-resourced humanitarian groups and organisations. According to the Kurdish Red Crescent, at least 517 people, 371 of them children, died in 2019, many from preventable diseases, in Al-Hol camp alone. In August 2020, eight children under the age of five died in that camp in less than a week, with four caused by malnutrition-related complications and the others were due to dehydration from diarrhoea, heart failure, internal bleeding and hypoglycaemia, according to UNICEF. Covid-19 has increased these difficulties, with a reduction in the number of workers operating in the camp.

Informations reçues concernant une opération d'enregistrement et de vérification dans les camps d'Al-Hol et de Roj situés dans le nord-est de la Syrie où vos ressortissants, principalement des femmes et des enfants, sont actuellement privés de liberté. Dans ces camps de fortune fermés, constitués de structures vétustes qui s'effondrent sous l'effet de vents violents ou qui sont inondées par la pluie ou les eaux usées, les conditions sanitaires sont déplorables: l'eau potable est souvent contaminée, les latrines débordent, des monticules d'ordures jonchent le sol, et les maladies, y compris les infections virales, y sévissent. La nourriture, l'eau, les soins de santé et les produits non alimentaires essentiels sont fournis par des groupes et des organisations humanitaires aux ressources insuffisantes. Selon le Croissant rouge kurde, au moins 517 personnes, dont 371 enfants, seraient mortes en 2019, dont beaucoup de maladies évitables, rien que dans le camp d'Al-Hol. En août 2020, selon UNICEF, huit enfants de moins de cinq ans sont morts dans ce camp en moins d'une semaine, dont quatre à cause de complications liées à la malnutrition et les autres à cause d'une déshydratation due à la diarrhée, à une insuffisance cardiaque, à une hémorragie interne et à une hypoglycémie. Le Covid-19 a accru ces difficultés, en réduisant le nombre d’employés opérant dans le camp.

Many of these persons have started occupying the State land in question because they were unable to pay their rent due to the crisis triggered by the COVID-19 epidemic. Others have been living in informal settlements on State land or living in substandard housing for prolonged periods due to poverty. We would also like to bring to your attention that such forced evictions are taking place in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, thus further elevating the risk to health and life of the persons subjected to forced evictions, who, according to the information received, have not been offered alternative accommodation.

According to the information received, human rights defenders and journalists have been stopped and detained by U.S. authorities or by other governments at the request of U.S. authorities using flagging systems designed to stop organized crime and threats to national security. The events discussed below started in 2017 but appear to have escalated in response to work with the so-called “migrant caravan.”

Alleged violations of the human rights of residents of Flint, Michigan, in the context of lead contamination of its water, including the rights to adequate housing, water and sanitation, and non-discrimination. According to the information received, water supplies in the city of Flint became contaminated with lead following the city’s decision in April 2014 to switch its water source to the Flint River as a cost-cutting measure and its failure to put in place corrosion control measures to mitigate the levels of lead and copper in the water. Despite the emergence of evidence and studies that indicated an elevated level of lead in the water as well as in the blood of the children in Flint, the city insisted that its water supplies complied with all state and federal standards, failing to take immediate mitigation measures. It is further suggested that Flint residents, who are in majority Black or African American and among the most impoverished of any metropolitan area, did not enjoy the same degree of protection from environmental and health hazards as that provided to other communities. A previous communication raising concerns about the water crisis in Flint was sent on 2 March 2016, see above, case no. USA 1/2016.

Alleged high levels of lead found in water consumed by residents of Flint, Michigan; and allegations that Flint is not an isolated incident but that disproportionate health risks are faced by communities and/or people of lower socio-economic standing due to toxics, pollution and other hazardous substances and wastes in the United States of America. According to the information received, inhabitants of the city of Flint were consuming water contaminated with lead when the state of Michigan changed the source for tap water in April 2014 but failed to apply standards to prevent contamination of the water. Several alerts and studies were dismissed by the authorities until 1 October 2015 when the Governor of Michigan admitted the gravity of the situation and urged residents to stop drinking water from the tap, declaring a state of emergency on 5 January 2016. On 16 January 2016 President Obama declared a Federal state of emergency for Flint in order to speed up distribution of bottled waters and filters. Up to 8,000 children under the age of six are alleged to have been exposed to lead poisoning and will need ongoing medical help with health and behavioural issues.

Alleged blockage at the Nepal-India border of vessels carrying essential goods resulting in a lack of basic supplies and services, including food, fuel, water and sanitation, and medical supplies and services available to the people of Nepal. According to the information received, on 20 September 2015, Nepal promulgated a new constitution, the adoption of which eventually resulted in a blockage at the border with India. On 24 September 2015, vehicles carrying essential supplies were prevented from entering Nepal. A lack of medical supplies combined with water shortages have reportedly reduced the availability of certain medical procedures, while the shortage of other vital supplies such as food and fuel had a detrimental impact on the health of persons in situation of vulnerability, school closures, and deforestation for use as fuel. As a consequence of this blockage and due to Nepal’s heavy reliance on the border trade and transactions the country risks facing a humanitarian crisis.

Letter to Samarco Mining S.A. on alleged detrimental human rights impacts caused by the collapse of an ore tailing waste dam in Bento Rodrigues, a district of Mariana municipality in Minas Gerais state, Brazil, belonging to Samarco Mining S.A., a joint venture between Vale S.A. and BHP Billiton Brazil Ltd. According to the information received, 50 million cubic metres of iron ore waste washed away the Bento Rodrigues district of 600 inhabitants and the ‘mud wave’ penetrated the whole extension of the Doce river and the sea beyond the estuary, affecting the entire ecosystem of the region in its downstream path of 850 km towards the sea. Around 3 million people are estimated to be affected. Studies have shown the toxicity of the wastes, with high levels of hazardous substances such as arsenic, barium, lead, manganese, copper, iron, nickel, zinc, antimony, chrome, cobalt, vanadium, phosphor and aluminium reported. Most cities in the flood path have had water cuts, since their main water source is the Doce River and the water is untreatable for human consumption due to the large presence of suspended solids and heavy metals. It is reported that 11 bodies have been found and 12 persons are missing. Hospitals have also received patients displaying symptoms of intoxication by heavy metals. Similar communications were sent to BHP Billiton Ltd, see above, case no. OTH 11/2015, and to Vale S.A , see below, case no. OTH 13/2015.

Presuntas violaciones de varios derechos humanos de al menos 12.000 personas que viven en 14 comunidades en el departamento de El Petén, Guatemala, debido a la contaminación del río La Pasión además de alegaciones de restricciones en el trabajo de defensores de derechos humanos denunciando esta situación. Según la información recibida, desde abril de 2015 se ha encontrado una gran cantidad de peces muertos flotando en el río. Se alega que la muerte de peces en el río La Pasión está relacionada con la presencia de altos niveles de un pesticida organofosforado llamado "malatión". La contaminación del río fue responsabilidad de REPSA, una empresa de aceite de palma que tiene una plantación y una planta de procesamiento ubicada cerca de los afluentes de dicho río. Se alega además que el río La Pasión es una fuente hídrica esencial para el sustento de aproximadamente 12.000 personas del municipio de Sayaxché. Igualmente, se ha constatado que miembros de las comunidades utilizan el agua del río para lavar ropa, pesca cocinar, beber, bañarse y para la agricultura de subsistencia.

Alleged detrimental human rights impact caused by the collapse of an ore tailing waste dam in Bento Rodrigues, a sub-district of Mariana municipality in Minas Gerais state belonging to Samarco Mining S.A., a joint venture between Vale S.A. and BHP Billiton Brazil Ltda. According to the information received, 50 million cubic metres of iron ore waste washed away the entire Bento Rodrigues district of 600 inhabitants and the advancing toxic ‘mud wave’ continues to contaminate the soil, rivers, flora and fauna of the entire ecosystem of the region in its downstream path of 850 kilometres towards the sea. From the source of the contamination to the mouth of the sea, around 6 million people are affected by this disaster. The environmental damage to the region is said to be irreparable as the flood waters have produced a dense toxic mud that has entered the River Doce, contaminating it with very high levels of hazardous substances. All cities in the flood path have had water cuts and many residents have had to be taken to hospital for respiratory irritation and intoxication of heavy metals. 11 bodies had been found and 12 persons are still officially missing.

According to the information received, the number of homeless persons has been rising in the past few years in the city of Cork, Ireland, and it is currently estimated to be at 600 people due to lack of affordable housing, the impact of austerity measures and the global financial crisis. This exceeds the capacity of emergency shelters available in the city. In addition, there have not been any free public water and sanitation services for at least ten years. The water and sanitation services available to homeless persons through the emergency establishments are reportedly inadequate.

Presuntos impactos causados por el Acueducto Independencia en los derechos sustantivos de 5 comunidades indígenas que constituyen el Pueblo Yaqui y que se encontrarían asentadas a lo largo del río Yaqui. De acuerdo con la información recibida, no hubo un proceso de consulta adecuada con las comunidades del Pueblo Indígena Yaqui en el contexto de la construcción y operación del acueducto. Este fue afirmado en 2013 por la Suprema Corte de Justicia de la Nación (SCJN), que clarificó que el manifiesto de impacto ambiental de 2011 quedo insubsistente dado que la autoridad no cumplió con su deber de organizar una consulta previa, libre e informada al pueblo Yaqui que se ve directamente afectado por el proyecto. En seguimiento a la sentencia de la SCJN, en agosto de 2013, se empezó la implementación de un proceso de consulta al pueblo Yaqui, que según la información recibida no habría cumplido con los estándares internacionales en la materia, más específicamente el carácter previo, libre e informado del proceso. Además, hasta la fecha el acueducto sigue operando, causando una violación grave a sus derechos al agua. Además, hay alegaciones de criminalización de la oposición indígena al proyecto. Según se informa, algunos líderes de la comunidad Yaqui, entre los cuales, Mario Luna Romero, Tomas Rojo Valencia y Fernando Jiménez Gutiérrez habrían sido objeto de órdenes de aprehensión por parte de la Procuraduría Estatal, en el contexto de una serie de amenazas y actos de hostigamientos directos a desalentar la oposición indígena al acueducto.

Alleged disconnection of piped water supply in the city of Aleppo, Syria, for almost a month, resulting in a lack of adequate access to safe drinking water and sanitation at homes, hospitals and health facilities. According to the information received, the lack of adequate access to safe drinking water and sanitation, considered in the context of the heat wave occurring in the region, is believed to have contributed directly to an increase in the number of cases of illness, including 3,000 cases of moderate diarrhoea in children recorded in July 2015 alone. The disconnections are reportedly either deliberately performed by parties to the current armed conflict, or occur as a result of the destruction of the infrastructure due to the intensified air strikes and other attacks by the different parties to the conflict, including Government forces. A previous communication on water cut-offs in Aleppo was sent on 14 May 2014, see A/HRC/27/72, case no. SYR 6/2014.

Alleged large-scale disconnection of water services disproportionally affecting poor African-American or Black households in the city of Baltimore. According to the information received, the Department of Public Works of the City of Baltimore has started to disconnect water services for households who are six months or more in arrears of more than 250 USD providing only a ten-day notice. The City announced plans to disconnect about 150 household per day starting at the end of March 2015. The combination of high poverty rates and water and sanitation bills which have tripled since 2000 has made water increasingly unaffordable for a large number of households. The assistance programme, which offers 161 USD to certain low-income households, is reported to be insufficient and difficult to access because of procedural and documentation requirements. These disconnections affect several rights, including the right to life, to health, to housing, and to water and sanitation.

Allegations of continued disconnections of water services and of large numbers of related foreclosures and evictions in Detroit in violation of human rights standards. According to the information received, the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department continues to disconnect water services from households during winter months without evaluating the account to determine the vulnerability of the residents to a shut off. In some cases, the water system is related directly to the heating system, which is a concern particularly with households with children and seniors, persons with disabilities and persons suffering from chronic illness. According to information received, in addition, approximately 27,000 persons are reportedly at risk of foreclosure and eviction as of December 2014, and 37% of the foreclosure tax lien proceedings are due to unpaid water bills. Of grave concern is the increasing numbers of evictions and homeless in Detroit that will likely occur this winter, with no evidence of provision of adequate homeless shelters to those affected. The foreclosures and evictions will mostly affect those living in poverty in Detroit – a city with high poverty rates at 40% - and will likely disproportionately affect African Americans who comprise most of the poor population in the city.

According to the information received, on the night of 27 May 2014, Ms. X and Ms. Y, both minors, were abducted as they walked to a field to relieve themselves because they had no access to sanitation at home. After being made aware of this incident, the girls’ fathers reportedly went to the police station in the village to report their daughters as missing. However, the local police officers insulted them and refused to help, reportedly because the two young women belonged to a lower caste. The girls were later found dead, hanging from a tree in a mango orchard. It is reported that they had been gang-raped before they were killed.

Allegations of unjustified disconnections of water services in Detroit. According to the information received, the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department has been disconnecting water services from households who have not paid bills for two months, and has accelerated its pace from early-June by disconnecting 3,000 customers per week. As a result, some 30,000 households are expected to be disconnected from water services over the next few months. Because of a high poverty and unemployment rate, the increased costs of water and sanitation make them are unaffordable for a significant portion of the population. Voluntary funds have too little funding to support all households who cannot pay their water bills.

Reports further indicate that the rights of those opposing the project have been suppressed resulting in a series of human rights abuses.

Alegaciones sobre los posibles efectos del proceso de revisión del Plan de Ordenamiento Territorial (POT) de la Oficina de Planeación Municipal de Medellín. Según la información recibida, una gran proporción de personas viviendo en extrema pobreza en Colombia se ha concentrado en asentamientos informales en zonas urbanas y periféricas. En el asentamiento informal El Faro, en la ciudad de Medellín, los residentes se enfrentan a una situación precaria de alto hacinamiento, sin acceso a servicios públicos básicos como agua y recolección de basura, a pesar de que muchos residentes pagan impuestos de propiedad. Los derechos de los residentes a un nivel de vida adecuado, a una vivienda adecuada, al agua y al saneamiento, y al nivel más alto posible de salud mental y física se ven amenazados. El Municipio declaró los territorios del barrio como inadecuadas para toda construcción urbana, y anunció un proyecto para construir un tanque de almacenamiento de agua en dichos terrenos, requiriendo la relocación de 37 familias. Se expresa preocupación ante estas alegaciones.

Alleged cuts to basic water supplies in Aleppo. According to the information received, approximately three million people have been affected by cuts to water supplies in Aleppo as of the beginning of May 2014. Hundreds of people in the city were reportedly forced to queue for long periods in front of mosques and other public spaces in order to fill containers with water, while many others resorted to taking unsafe water from the river. Reports indicate an increase in cases of gastroenteritis and acute diarrhoea. The cuts reportedly are a result of deliberate interference with the water supply by an armed opposition group, while other allegations suggest electricity supply cuts by the authorities may also be impeding supply. It is further alleged that since the beginning of May 2014, more stringent controls have been implemented by the authorities in relation to the delivery of relief efforts.

According to the information received, severe and chronic food and water shortages due to drought and extreme poverty are the principal causes of death. The majority of victims reportedly belong to the minority Dalit community. Reports suggest that the crisis has been exacerbated by insufficient investment in healthcare facilities with long standing vacancies in Government run hospitals and health centres, as well as a lack of female doctors, limiting the provision of adequate medical services. Undue delays on the part of the authorities to react to the crisis have reportedly resulted in the Sindh provincial Government being accused by the Supreme Court of failing to fully report the facts, highlighting its failure to distribute sixty thousand bags of wheat flour allocated to the region in December 2013.

Alleged negative impact on lowest incomes of rising water costs leading to water poverty. According to a report by the House of Commons Library, in England and Wales water bills might not be affordable for a large number of people. Nearly one-third of those on the lowest incomes already have to pay more than 3 per cent of their income for their water and sewerage bills. If people pay more than 3 per cent of their income for water and sewerage, Government regards them as being affected by ‘water poverty’. According to a survey, 23.6 per cent of households in England and Wales paid more than 3 per cent of their net income after housing cost on water and sewerage in 2009-2010. Nearly half of those paid more than 5 per cent of household disposable income. This is a sharp increase compared to 9 per cent of households who were affected by ‘water poverty’ in 2002-2003. National Debtline received a record 19,667 calls for help with water debts in 2012 (up from 12,225 in 2011). The figure represents an increase of 251% since 2007.

According to information received, as part of the austerity measures the privatization of water and sanitation services in Portugal continues. While the human rights to water and sanitation do not prescribe a particular form of service delivery, there are allegations that concerned populations have not participated in the decision-making process and that the privatization has made water and sanitation services unaffordable for some people. This trend has reportedly also had a negative impact on access and affordability of adequate housing, disproportionally affecting vulnerable sectors of the population.

According to the information received, the “Law for the Regulation of Bedouin Settlement in the Negev- 2013”, a bill also known as the Prawer-Begin Bill, to be enacted into law in the coming days would lead to the eviction and forced displacement of more than 70,000 Arab Bedouins in the Naqab (Negev) desert in the south of Israel. Allegedly this would mean the destruction of most of the remaining unrecognized Arab Bedouin villages in this region. Concerns also include severance of the historical ties to land by the Bedouin community, strict limits and conditions to access and receive adequate compensation whether in money or land, and the use of force in the form of the deployment of additional police officers in charge of the implementation of this Plan.

Reportedly, in 2005 a large number of the evicted residents had been promised new housing by BBMP after their original housing at the site was destroyed. Yet no housing was built since and residents had to settle informally at the site.

According to information received, Médecins Sans Frontières, Action Contre la Faim and Muslim Aid UK received letters on 2 August 2012 from the NGO Affairs Bureau attached to the Office of the Prime Minister, asking them to cease their operations in the Cox’s Bazar district (except in the two official camps, housing some 30,000 Rohingya, run by the Government and supported by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and other partners). It is alleged that the cessation of the aid organizations activities will not only seriously infringe on the human rights of the unregistered Rohingya asylum-seekers, refugees and migrants, but also have a significant impact on the large number of local people in the area who regularly access the services provided by the non-governmental organizations.

Alleged negative impacts on human rights of affected communities of a proposed Bangladesh domestic policy permitting the construction of an open-pit coal mine in the township of Phulbari. Concerns transmitted to GCM Resources plc, which through its subsidiary Asia Energy Corporation (Bangladesh) Pty Ltd works under a contract with the Government of Bangladesh on the Phulbari Coal Mine project. According to information received, the open-pit coal mine in Phulbari, if constructed, would have a significant impact on food production and access by destroying approximately 12,000 acres of productive agricultural land, and on water access by lowering the water table 12 to 25 metres and potentially poisoning water sources. The proposed mine would allegedly displace up to 220,000 people over time, 50,000 of whom are indigenous peoples belonging to 23 different tribal groups. Current plans reportedly do not provide adequate compensation or resettlement, and have not included consultations with affected communities. Finally, allegations have been raised concerning continued efforts to stop human rights defenders from protesting the Phulbari coal mine and the resulting infringements on their rights to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly.

Alleged arbitrary arrest and detention and lack of access to food, water and adequate housing and other alleged human rights violations of migrant workers in Thailand in the context of the flood crisis. According to information received, migrant workers working and living in Thailand have been arrested and detained for travelling outside of their permitted areas of work or for lack of identification documents as they have escaped flooded areas to seek shelter, reunite with relatives, or return to their countries of origin. Many of the arrests and detention have allegedly occurred in Mae Sot, Tak Province, at the border with Myanmar. Reports of lack of access to food and water for migrants whilst in detention or in certain areas due to migrant workers being excluded from distribution of food and other essential items according to house registration records have also been received. It is further alleged that migrant workers have been denied access to emergency shelters as some facilities have allegedly been open to Thai citizens only, whilst other shelters have required the holding of a recommendation or certificate from the Ministry of Labour. According to information received, migrant workers have furthermore had difficulties in accessing assistance due to poor or little access to information. Deportation of migrants from Thailand to Myanmar have also been reported which could be in violation of the obligation of non-refoulement.

Alleged forced eviction of more than 200 farmers. According to the information received, in May 2008, at least 200 farmers from Polong and Noliasahi villages in Jagatsinghpur district in Orissa state were subject to forced evictions in order to make way for a steel plant and a captive port. During the eviction, the Orissa state authorities, aided by 150 armed police force officials, reportedly destroyed betel vine crops and cultivation sheds. Following the eviction, the lands were fenced off in order to prevent the farmers from accessing them. In addition, evictions of more than 470 families living and working in the Erasama block of Jagatsinghpur District and demolition of their houses and crops had allegedly been planned. The land acquisition would reportedly affect the livelihood of local communities who depend on betel vine and cashew nut cultivation and fishing in the area.

Alleged threats of forced displacement and discrimination against the Bedouin of the West Bank. According to the information received, the Bedouin of the West Bank were displaced from their tribal lands in the Negev desert in 1948. They are allegedly continuously exposed to the threat of forced displacement and discrimination, and live in an area of the occupied West Bank trapped between the policies of the Government of Israel and the Palestinian Authority. They are allegedly prevented from enjoying the minimum requirements of a dignified life, including lack of access to safe drinking water and sanitation. Community representatives report that the Bedouin are no longer allowed to visit their relatives in the Negev. The rangeland and water that the Bedouin depend on for their livestock has reportedly become fragmented by the establishment of closed military areas, Israeli settlements, nature reserves, check points and the West Bank Barrier.
