By Rohingya Vision TV Correspondents | 13th January 2018

Akyab: Rohingyas residing in Internally displaced people’s camp (IDP) in Akyab (Sittwe) are once again enforced National Verification Card (NVC) by the Authorities today ( 13th Jan 2018), reports a victim.

A team of immigration department along with munuciple officers arrived at the They Kea Pyin IDP camp at early morning. After a little time of patrolling all over the area they started their fierce and force technique with locals to accept the illegal NVC.

Following force and fierce locals were extremely terrified but they refused the unlawful NVC as it will make them officially stateless in their own ancestral land.

Earlier on 12th January 2018 authorities forced some village administrators and clerks to run the campaign of forcing NVC to the Rohingyas by threat.

Similar campaign are also taking place in all township of Arakan (Rakhine), where Rohingya are initially forced and later they were even chased and detained for rejecting the NVC.
