Greeting from Y. Sato of the Uni. of Tokyo

Dear Mr. Zaw Min Htut,
Sorry for late in my reply. Thank you for your infomation. Allan Mackie, who is a senior immigration judge and testified on refugee law in Tokyo district court for Rohingya case a few years ago (so you should have known him.) agree on speak on refugee togehter with you at the University of Tokyo when he visit Japan in October. Is it OK with you to speak on Rohingya refugees and Japanese policy on Thursday 20 October 2005. If you can, I wish to invite you as a main speaker togehter with Allan.
This seminar will be open to public and funded by our Peace-building Studies Group and co-sponsored by HSP (Human Security Program) of the UoT. Pls inform me of your availability and topic you wish to speak. I wonder it be a sort of comparative study b/n UK and Japan over Rohingya refugees which have implication on refugee policy, affected by the recent incidents in London (my concern is that refugee could be labeled as terrorist potentional - you know anti-government people could be accused of easily). Also I should be happy to contact with Mr. Nurul Islam,the president of Arakan Rohingya National Organisation, ARNO. I think it better for you to introduce me to him by email or so.
Now this week I shall go on my mission to Europe and be back on 3 Sep. and leave for Japan on 7 Sep. So I do not know I can have time to see him anyway. For your info. I shall have a lunch with staff and director of Asian region of Amnesty International on Mon. 5 Sep.

He is a long time Rohingya leader and very nice person.I believe he can provide you a lots of information regarding Rohingya case and I hope you will be able to advice him how to carry on our longstanding problem.His email is ...nuromor@yahoo.com and telephone number is 442084780986 or mobile is...4407947854652. It will be very highly appreciated if you give us a chance to present our issue to the Human Security Program which is headed by yourself.Under the current military regime in Burma about two million Rohingyas are suffering inhumanely.

They are treated as subhuman being by the Gov.Due to the lack of human security in Burma,half of the total population of Rohingyas had been fled their motherland to be scattered around the world. Thank you again for your coming forward to help the vulnearable Rohingya as a savior of them.
Please allow me to keep in touch with you,Sir.
