    Arakan State:
    United Nations envoy, Vijay Nambiar, has wrapped up a visit to Burma
    between December16-20,2012, was at the invitation of the Burmese
    Government, which has pledged to take measures to address the
    violence in Arakan State, but no visited to Rohingya IDPs camp in
    Maungdaw, according to a Rohingya politician.

    Maungdaw, only one Rohingya IDPs camp which was setup during last
    month in Koe Tan Kauk village under Maungdaw south, who fled from
    Rathedaung since June, other Rohingya IDPs from Maungdaw are not
    recognized by authority.”

    The UN envoy only visited the Natala fake IDPs
    camps—- Mawra Waddi and Kan pin Thazi—but not Rohingya IDPs in
    Maungdaw Township. The thousands of Rohingya IDPs have no shelters,
    no food and medicines. They did not get any help from outside, so
    far, said a local leader from Maungdaw.

    A Rohingya elder from Maungdaw Town said,” Many
    local poor Rakhine people were placed on the road side of Maungdaw-
    Aley Than Kyaw Highway road by erecting tents before the UN envoy’s
    visit to show the fake IDPs. After visiting the UN envoy, the fake
    IDPs returned to their houses.”

    Maungdaw high officials had made a plan to show International
    delegation who visit Maungdaw with fake IDPs -Natala and Rakhine- as
    the Rohignya had attacked the fake IDPs as minority in Maungdaw. But,
    Rohingya IDPs are not show to this delegation.”
