refugee camp in bangladesh life for women and children is particularly difficult. this woman fled from me and ma with her 3 children and husband after their village was burnt down 2 years ago. my husband left me and my children after we came here and it was difficult for me to make ends meet. i didn't have any other option and i want to live. any other option that is going to work as a prostitute now when she gets the call she travels to the neighboring towns outside of their fiji campus. on a qualified there's no other job i can do much about i can't do anything else if i remarry my new husband will take care of me but not my children. it's impossible to say how many reading the refugees end up in the sex trade here many are as young as
6:33 pm
14 according to local n.g.o.s thousands of women are trafficked across bangladesh and even abroad lured by false promises of jobs and marriage. we wanted to gauge how widespread the problem really is in the tourist town of cox bizarre roughly 40 kilometers from the camps we got in touch with a pimp who posted to have several rango women on call. hello. show you some girls and if you like them you can take them if not you can leave. oh ok see you in an hour. a bit later a reporter meets the man at a prearranged point and gets into an auto rickshaw with him while we follow behind a reporter secretly filming the entire encounter.
6:34 pm
the 1st stop is a hotel which serves as a brothel to begin with the manager seems suspicious and denies having any prostitutes then he shows us pictures of a few women on his phone none of them seem to be wrecking. around 10 pm the pimp sends a rectangle woman to our hotel she's too scared to talk to us when we reveal we're journalists because she's worried the hotel might tell the pimps but she confirms she is a 23 year old wrecking a refugee she says she's a victim of her circumstances. back at the camp the sex worker we met earlier tells us 3 are not allowed to work and there have been several police raids on hotels doubling as brothels she herself was recently released from jail. to the us and the now let me know if i can find any other way to make money
6:35 pm
i'll have to go back to this work if i do i might get arrested again. but she's likely to take that risk again because for now she doesn't have a choice. and faced with such a bleak future breaking the women remain easy prey for the pimps and traffickers. did every reporter. is with me in the studio you just saw them in their report. out of the report provides this rare insight into a problem that has only been hard. never seen in this fashion do these women have no the option of usually they don't have any other option because one of the government doesn't consider or doesn't recognize them as a defuses so that's why they don't get any kind of face it is there to defuse is usually get according to international law so for them they're not allowed to walk in my mother's they are not allowed to get education in one of this they're not
6:36 pm
allowed to move freely selfishly they're not allowed to go outside their damn unless there is a any kind of medical emergency so for that reason they're not allowed to walk at all but there are some projects by local n.g.o.s there they can work as fallen and then again they get very little amount of money which is you cannot compare it with the regular stuff and it often it's like that the government doesn't know eat or bed to eat in a secured way so what you're saying does that look like the bangladesh government is part of the problem and not part of the solution another government says that we are providing them relief we have provided them sheltered so they don't nickel work and they don't want to make it as if they had if you just because if the government acknowledges them as if it is then they will have many other rights that the government doesn't want to give them and why does the government more want to give them these rights that's
6:37 pm
a very good question because. but whether the government wants to gape rid of them in a way they want that myanmar takes them back so they are focusing more on. their want international community to walk on that direction that do something so that the myanmar it is to take them back last month that there was a christian act in bed it failed completely because say that they will return but they need some kind of issuance or guarantee that they will be offered citizen safe in myanmar they will be recognized as. in myanmar and also they want safety and security in iraq and the state so they haven't got any kind of insurance for these demands there is a very human aspect to your story i mean you're talking about women who till about 2 years back were ordinary mothers ordinary sisters ordinary daughters and now a lot of them are having to prostitute themselves out and they come from
6:38 pm
a very conservative background as well how are these women coping with this and how do they see the future that's a very difficult situation for them i would say i mean they don't know what their future looks like there is though it's complete uncertain they're living in an uncertain situation so they don't know what the future looks like and that's why i see there are some kind of despite this and so they are despite to get out of this situation if possible and like beams and human traffickers that they use this and they try to and of them to go out of the camp to find some other places for a bit of a life so it's very easy to manipulate them in a way and what about the local bottom of their shoes i mean ultimately these refugees live amongst the local don't know the issues are they getting any support from them or local bunch of issues perhaps viewing them as money making opportunities have a process that might sound when i was there 2 years. it started in august 2017 i
6:39 pm
was there after a few weeks and i saw people are welcoming them there was kind of they are muslims who are muslim so let's support them and they need our help this should not die a they should not be killed by me and my military but naish changing its saluting there is a growing conflict between local community and rowing us and there was a killing last month and after that like for 3 joining us where kind of killed in crossfire in bangladesh they call it crossfire but he went out organiser saved the way of killing ruling us or killing people by this it would force us and we don't know we cannot verify that but there are incidents like this and it's happening and you can see the tension between us and local community it's growing slowly over the last from him from his on the last i would be speaking about this thanks so much for coming in.
