Rohingya Farm Lands Confiscated in Buthidaung 

By Rohingya Mirror | January 13, 2017

Buthidaung — At least 10 acres of Rohingya-owned farm lands were confiscated by the Myanmar BGP (Border Guard Police) in Buthidaung Township last Friday (on Jan 6), local sources have reported. 

Eight years ago, the Nasaka (the former Border Security Force and predecessor of the BGP) confiscated around 20 acres of the local Rohingyas’ farmlands at the village of ‘Phayapyin Aungpha’ to establish the camp known as the ‘Nyaung Chaung BGP Camp’ today.

Again on January 6, the BGP put up Red Flags and gathering bricks to erect walls surrounding the 10 more acres of the seized lands at ‘Phayapyin Aungpha’ without even letting the owners of the lands know about it and paying the due compensations.

The Burmese (Myanmar) governments have indulged in the confiscation of the Rohingya-owned lands (in Arakan state) for past three decades without paying any compensations to the owners. The government(s) have either set up ‘illegal Rakhine/Bama settlements’ known as ‘Natala Modal Villages’ or military/security forces camps on the confiscated lands and the government continues to abuse its power against the Rohingya till today.
