Huge Amount of Money Extortion Occurred –Maungdaw

The extortion of money from Arakanese Rohingya by Myanmar Governmental Personals especially NaSaKa ( Boder Security Force) and Police Force is wide spreading day by day, usually with false accusation.  According to one of our correspondents,  3.8 millions Kyats has been extorted from four Rohingyas detainees  in Ngakura of Maungdaw Township , Arakan State by NaSaKa personals of the said Area.
A team of 30 NaSaKas lead by a Lieutanant Commander  Win Laing belonging  to NaSaKa outpost Area No. 5 raided Keari Farang Market ( Kyet Yoo Pyin Market) on 2nd January,2013 at around 8:30pm. It has been reported that millions Kyats  worth properties of Rohingya shopkeepers  had  been damaged and looted during the raid by NaSaKas. 
During the raid, NaSaKa arrested four  innocent Rohingya Shop Owners from their respective shop  with no reason and threatened to arrest more. The victims of  arrest are identified as follows :

         SID          Name                         Father’s Name                      Age

                1.            Md  Hashim                     Ferdan                                   16 years 
                2.             Md  Ali                             Abdul Hamid                          23years
                3.            Md Hashim                      Lalu                                         17years
               4.             Md Ayas                            Kala Meah                             18years

It has been learned by our source that, all the detainees were eventually released by NaSaKa personals after extorting 3.8millions of Kyats in total.

Wide spread hostility toward the Rohingya through the regime inhabited their naturalization especially after the pre-planned  State sponsored ethno religious conflict broke out in Arakan State, the government and Rakhine Extremist ultimately decided to deport  all Rohingyas depriving them of money and belongings because  they consider it’s taking longer time to die due to starvation  . Notably, there was an ethnic cleansing slogan apparently designed on a large signboard in front of every immigration office thought Arakan State which read in Burmese “The earth cannot swallow a nation, a nation can swallow another nation  “. However the slogan is now being seen changed with “ The nation couldn’t be swallowed by Earth nor by Another nation , instead a nation could be swallowed by striving them of Money “ apparently the nation referencing to Rohingyas.

Since the Military took over the country’s power in 1962, the ethnic Rohingyas are being increasingly swallowed by many methods of ethnic cleansing.  Today  President Thien Sien, a former Military General is widely praised  for so called democracy transition in Burma and lifting  economic sanction by the West, on the other hand, the ethnic  cleansing with every possible method, unfolding human right atrocities and war crime against Muslim Rohingyas are more active in progress on daily basis. As a consequences hundreds of thousands of Rohingyas  has been driven to the makeshift camps in their homeland with no basic need and medical care while growing number of them are risking their lives on  risky smuggling  boats heading to other countries via Bay of Bangal  where they risk arrest, detention and possible send-back to Myanmar.
