Declaration to submit petition for the confiscated land of Rohingya

(Burma Times) BY Maung Hla Myint – According to the villagers of
Atwin Nga Tay village tract, City peace and development council (Ma-Ya-Ka) and
land registry has released notification to submit petition for the confiscated
Rohingya land.
The land was confiscated for the battalions and pagoda in 1988
and 1994. There were hundreds of acre land that was confiscated for battalions
and one hundred acre for the pagoda that is located in Dom Pine village, a
Buddhist village near the Kin Daung village tract. In fact it was belonged to
Kin Daung villagers. The land which was seized for the pagoda was allocated two
acre to every family of the Dom Pine villagers (Buddhists) in last may.
Incredibly, the City peace & development council and land
registry have sent letters to the village administrator of kin Daung about
submitting petition for the confiscated land of kin Daung villagers before
second December. The petition Is for those hundred acre land which are locating
around the pagoda. Unfortunately there is no any declaration of the government
official for other villagers about submitting petition for their confiscated
But the villagers are worrying if the notification turns to fake
( i.e it is the show off of the Myanmar authority for the international
community). Her,I mentioned some villagers name and their confiscated acre land
