The court sentenced two Rohingya labors ten years jail for being committed no crime and law violation in Buthidaung Township, Northern Arakan on 5th April 2013.

The victims are Mohammad Anwar and Mohammed Zubair live in Letwaydak Pazon Chaung village, a tract of Buthidaung. They earned money with daily works such as goods shipment from jetty to market, cleaning houses, fencing the compounds and other household works etc.

On 27th March 2013, a Buddhist Rakhine had called those labors to work in his house for some household tasks but they denied servicing him because of frightening the Buddhists’ unavoidable plan to Rohingya mass killing.

A group of Rakhine youths rounded their houses and grabbed them to the Damamadai Monastery near central jail of Buthidaung on March 28, 2013. The Rakhine racists hit them severely and then handover to police station without any legal reasons.

Usually, the police personnel filed a case against those poor Rohingya as they were going to attack a Monk in Monastery.

The Buddhist judge of Buthidaung court sent them a ten years imprisonment having no investigation and inquiry. Anyhow, the judge of every township court in Arakan legalized all the falsehood statements what a Buddhist say to term a Rohingya. No justice and right for Rohingyas in Arakan for a pulse of time.

Hundreds of virtuous and faultless Rohingyas have been jailed for extended terms persisting since Sectarian unrest of June 2012.
