    Maungdaw,
    Arakan State:
    Burma border security force (Nasaka) personnel
    arrested three Rakhines who were beating Rohingya fishermen in
    Ywanyotaung village today, according to an official from Maungdaw.

    “The
    Nasaka personnel from outpost camp 12 under Nasaka area number 5,
    received information of a group of Rakhines are beating three
    Rohingya fishermen in Ywanyotaung village, which was sent to Nasaka
    by village administration officer.”

    The
    Nasaka personnel rushed to the area where the Rakhine group were
    beating the Rohingya fishermen,where the Nasaka arrested three
    Rakhines and other were fled from the scene and ran away to the
    Rakhine village, according to an official of village administration
    office.


    “The
    Nasaka had kept the arrested Rakhines in their outpost 12 for
    interrogation. The Nasaka officer found that three Rakhines – two
    from Bangladesh and one from Rathedaung- which was given by the
    arrestee.”

    With
    this statement of arrestees, the authority didn’t know how many
    Rakhines were enter illegally in Maungdaw from Bangladesh and the
    concerned security forces didn’t know how many Rakhines had come to
    Maungdaw from other towns of Arakan.

    The
    statement of arrestee Rakhines had given the picture that who are
    entering Burma from Bangladesh before and recently, that is Rakhines
    from Bangladesh not Rohingya from Bangladesh, said an elder from
    Maungdaw.

    Similarly,
    the Immigration minister U Khin Ye told reporters after third round
    peace talk meeting with KNU and Thein Sein government, there are no
    illegal entering ( Rohingyas) in Arakan State after investigation and
    most of the Immigration officer are mostly Rakhines.

    If
    the Immigration officers are Rakhines in Arakan ( Northern Arakan),
    how the Rohingya are entered illegally and holding fake ID card
    card.It May be possible for Rakhines from Bangladesh entered
    illegally and will hold ID cards as the officers are all Rakhines.
    The Rohingya who are facing so many restrictions in Arakan, the
    people from Bangladesh will not enter that place where no freedom is.
    They will move other countries- Middle East and Southeast Asian
    country –Malaysia for earning money.No jobs for Rohingya in Burma,
    how the Bangladesh people will come for jobs or to stay in the open
    jail, the elder more said.
