Buthidaung: Burmese authorities threatened to obtain huge sums of money from several village administrators in the remaining populated villages of Buthidaung Township on 21st December, reports a local.

The Burmese administrator from Buthidaung Township named Kyaw Myint Twin threatened and obtained 300,000 Kyat from village admin of Khin Tha Ma village tract, 1,500,000 from village admin and 1,000,000 Kyat from vice village admin of Mee Kyaung Zay village tract.

On the same day, village admin of Dar Bine Sara village tract was also forced to pay an amount of 700,000 Kyat to the same Burmese administrator.

In parallel to money extortion, thousands of Rohingya students are deprived of education, both from religious and schooling sides.

This has left the parents ruminating their children’s future and ultimately the future of the community itself.
