The government is giving assistance to the victims and has asked an “independent” Burmese Human Rights Commission to investigate the unrest, which erupted in June, where the Rohingya and Buddhist communities are living together. There is “no need” for a foreign commission to investigate the violence as an international issue, said President Thein Sein in an exclusive interview with VOA Burmese Service.

“Many people believe that the district admin officer draws with them a master plan which will be a trap for Rohingyas in front of International commission to investigate in the field of Maungdaw as the Rohingya believe OIC and UN will come to investigate.”
“The authority keeps these three village admins –Mujeb Ullah, Abdul Rahman and Ayub Khan –the Myothugyi village admin- to organize Rohingyas to say as per authority told to the foreign investigation commission.”
The authority and their puppet s went to Latha village with Rakhine community and organized a meeting with Rohingya villagers where the officers said both communities will stay together from today and no fighting in the future. The officers take photographs of Rohingya- Rakhine handshaking, said a villagers from Maungdaw.
