Township Administration Orders to Demolish Rohingya Homes

Maungdaw – Over a dozen of Rohingya homes in ‘Kamauk Seik’ Township have been demolished under the order of the township administrator in the last few days.

Over 19 Rohingya homes have been demolished up until now and many more likely to be demolished in the coming three days.

“They summon us to the village administration office and order us to destroy our homes under several arbitrary allegations. They destroyed 4 houses last Saturday (on November 27) alleging that there were two houses under one household (family).

“‘Is it a good excuse to destroy our homes?’ They are simply destroying our homes because they can’t burnt them down as it can be seen from satellites,” said a villager at Aung Thabyay.

The homes were built during the period of Nasaka (the former Border Security Forces and predecessor of the Border Guard Police) with their permissions and have been included in all the ‘Household Location Maps’ drawn by the authorities in every ‘Household Inquiry.’

“They are destroying our homes because they want to force us to leave our homeland” the villager added.
