Akyab IDPs asked to fill out form in place of white card
By Burma Times Desk Report
Refugees in Akyab IDP camps have been given a form to fill up their details and hand over to authorities after March 31.
Most of these refugees lost their white cards when they were driven out of their old neighbourhoods during the 2012 riots.
The identity card of Rohingya Muslims known as the white card (given to people considered as foreigners by the government) is due to expire on March 31. The government has pledged to give tokens that will function as a replacement. However these refugees who lost their white cards are apprehensive if they shall also get the same facilities.
