More Rohingya Civilians Arrested by Military in Northern Maungdaw

By Rohingya Eye | December 25, 2016

Maungdaw — Six more Rohingya civilians were arrested by the Myanmar military at the village of ‘Ye Dwin Chaung’ in northern Maungdaw on Friday (Dec 23), reliable sources have reported.

Of the six people arrested at Ye Dwin Chaung, three were displaced people from neighboring villages taking refuge in their relatives’ homes (in the village of Ye Dwin Chaung)  after their homes had been burnt down by the military earlier. Other three were locals of the village found and arrested while working in a fishery pond.

The military launched a raid on the village, Ye Dwin Chaung locally known as Kuwar Bil, at around 5 am on Friday and subsequently began to force the men gather at the village’s religious school and the women along with children at the government school.

“The military tortured many village men including those six people arrested. And the women were molested”, said a man from the region, speaking on the condition of anonymity.

The military further checked the Family Registration lists of the villagers and released them from the siege at around 4:30 pm on Friday.

Nothing has been heard of the six village people since they were arrested and taken to unknown location. Fear among the locals seems that they would be labelled as militants, tortured and arbitrarily sentenced to long-term imprisonments.
