Sittway, Arakan– Rakhine State Adminstration has started preparation to forcibly shift around 301 famililies of Internally Displaced Rohingyas in Aung Mingalar quarter to the designated concerntration camps in the outskirts of Sittway. Besides, the Rohingya IDPs in the quarters of Kyaung Gyi Lan, Kone Dan , Ka Thay etc are also facing the same fate.

“There are around 301 Internally Displaced Rohingya famililes. They became displaced when their homes were burnt down by Rakhine terrorists last year. They preferred to stay in Aung Mingalar Quarter with their relatives and friends instead of going to the camps under disastrous condition in the outskirt of Sittway.

Many vans loaded with fully-weaponed Police and Hlun Htein (Security Force) arrived at Aung Mingalar Quarter at 9AM today. Now, they are going to foricbly shift the 301 Rohingya families to the designated concerntration camps such as Thakkay Pyin, Baw Du Pha and Ohn Daw Gyi etc in the outkirt of Sittway.

And the remaining IDP in the quarters of Kyaung Gyi Lan, Kone Dan , Ka Thay etc are also facing the same fate” said a local in Sittway.

According latest reports, there have already been eight vans loads of IDP shifted to the camps at Thakkay Pyin. Each time (i.e. at 11:10AM,11:45AM,12:10PM and12:50PM respectively), two vans loaded with displaced Rohingyas arrived at Thakkay Pyin Camps today.

This order by Rakhine State Government to shift the displaced Rohingyas by force was given all of sudden. The displaced Rohingyas don’t want to go to the camps under poor conditions. The Government is using threats to make Rohingyas shift to the camps in the ourskirt. The government is threatening Displaced Rohingyas that if they don’t move, the authority will block any incoming food rations and medicines to the people in Aung Mingalar Quarter.

In fact, the authority have blocked Displaced Rohingyas in the quarter from having access to humanitarian aids since June 2012. Besides, the government is trying to tempt Rohingyas by providing Kyat 10,000 to each family if they agree to move. Even the money is not given from the government’s budget but from Kyat 4 Millions donated by an INGO recently. No one wants to move. They just fear of government’s violence if they refuse to move” exclaimed another Rohingya in Sittway.

 

Updates:

At 02:15PM, displaced Rohingyas by two trucks were forcibly shifted to Thakkay Pyin Camps.

At 03:25PM, four more trucks loaded with internally displaced Rohingyas arrived at Thakkay Pyin Camps.

Altogether, it has been reported to have 130 households by 18 trucks shifted to Thakkay Pyin camps. Total numbers of the IDP are reported to be 577.
