Maungdaw, Arakan State: The concerned authority – look after the boat people in the temporary camp in Meetike and Taungpyo under Maungdaw Township – are harassing while they were performing their religious duties and female people were threaten with pretending like ghost, according to Halim, a Human Rights watch dog from Maungdaw.

The security force who guarded the male people in Meetike are disturbing boatpeople while they were praying in the camp by throwing stone to them and bared to wear the cap, Halim more added.

Similarly, In Taungpyo where female people were kept are facing ghost movement at night, but it is actually the security guards pretending like ghost walk in the camp, so they can easily able to enter the shed which was lock inside, said an elder from the village who mention the persons went to prevent the ghost.

The rescued people are not getting foods and medical assistant from the authority in both camps and the locals Rohingyas villagers are supplying foods for the rescued people, according to the villagers.

The authority bared the INGOs and UNHCR to visit the camps- especially to Meetike which was stationed near the fence and it was like jail of wire surrounding, said Halim. “The UNHCR is always blocked by authority when the official try to go to the camp to see the rescued people or other Rohingya areas.”

Six rescued people were missing from Meetike camp, but no one was aware for that. Yesterday, one Rohingya from Du Cheyadan village was missed, no action was found in the camp, said sources from near village.

When contacted to the head of Maungdaw UNHCR office to know about the office was bared or not to visit to the rescued people. But, officer denied to answer about.

The local people and activists are watching these rescued people and the movement of UNHCR, about the rescued people. But, they always saw, it was bared form authority. So, the local and activists are worried for them as they are persecuted Rohingyas and Bengali migrants and thinking why the authority barred the UNHCR. It may be leaking their information of planning. The officers in the office didn’t want to work for the rescued people, said sources. “The information leaked through the administration office.”
