Collecting family lists and photos in Rathedaung Township

Rathedaung, Arakan State:  The Burma’s border security force (Nasaka) has been again collecting family lists and taking photographs of Rohingya people with digital computerized system in Rathedaung Township since January 10, said a school teacher from Rathedaung on condition of anonymity.
“The concerned authorities did not write anything in the column of race in the form. They normally take the villagers’ data as before, so the villagers cooperate with the Nasaka.”

“However, the authority are collecting Kyat 1,500 for family photograph, Kyat 3,000 to enlist new born, Kyat 3,000 to cancel dead person from the list, and Kyat 7,000 to terminate a person from the list who went to abroad.”

But, the authority, did not enlist the girls or women along with their children in the family list who got married with her husband after getting necessary permission from the concerned authorities earlier. The women or the girls are from other places, such as— from other Nasaka areas within the township or from other township, said a local businessman who denied to be named.

“The concerned authority are trying to ease the Rohingya population from northern Arakan by not adding in her husband’s family list event they have all related document which was given by authority.”
