Maungdaw, Arakan State: The Maungdaw Township administration officer – U Kyi San – issued a new order for Rohingya community about death and birth, said Halim, a Human Rights Watchdog from Maungdaw.
The order was issued today and dispatched to all village and block administration officers and to public place by the administration office, Halim said.
The new order for death and birth is :- must witness and sign by block/village administration officer, the clerk of village administration office, medical officer, education officer and an elder, Halim more added.
This is for Rohingya only and it is a kind of harassment to Rohingya community as there is no education officer and medical officer from Rohingya community right now and it is a plan of Township administration officer to extort money from Rohingya, said Harron, a village administration officer from Maungdaw.
The witness and signatory are non- Rohingya and they will not sign without any benefit, so Rohingya will again face to bury a dead body or to enlist new born baby in their family list, Haroon said.
The Rohingya will lost more money for new law of death and birth to get the signature, said to process to end, said Arif, a student from Maungdaw.
