In the incidence the brutal village head usually extorts 3 lakh Kyats, from the villagers in every land buying and selling issues. So, when he was known of the new land owner he demanded the usual amount. Due to her poor condition she refused to pay.
The victim is identified to be Rahim Hatu D/O Kabir Ahmed, who is the legal owner of the land. And its the only income source of Rahima, says a local on the condition of anonymity.
Although there’s no hope for justice from the authorities, she decided to file a case against the village head Salamatullah due to intolerable situation.
Illegal occupation of lands and money extortion on daily basis became a schedule in the lives of Arakanese Rohingys, where persecution and injustice are operated along with collaboration of government officials since the military rule.

More than 20 inhabitant Rohingyas were accused of illegal border cross in Buthidaung by village head and Border Guard Police (BGP) and extorted more than 2 million Kyats ($-1700), where some were sent to court for future persecution, according to an eye witness.

The village head Salamat Ullah brought 15 policemen from the camp of Sector-9, Taung Bazar and arbitrarily arrested some villagers on false accuse of re-entering into the country form abroad at Friday midnight, on 22 July. Then they were detained in the office of village head temporarily to demand money on release.
Some of the arrested Rohingyas were released on extortion of 200 thousands Kyats each. But there were a few poor, who could not fulfilled their demand, taken to the lock-up of BGP and eventually, were sent to the court of Buthidaung filing a case of illegal border cross. Of them, Subahaan, aged 70, is the only bread earner of the whole family working as a day labourer. Since his arrest, his family left no choice except begging.
BGP instigate the village head to create such cases against innocent Rohingya people so that they can extort money that continues on poor Rohingyas, he added.

Rathedaung: Since 2012, Authorities have confiscated 100’s acre of Rohingya farmlands in Anaprang and all farmlands of Muzai, Rathedaung, where they made intolerable starving situation by ceasing food ration given by MHD (NGO) on 23rd July 2016.

In the incidence, MHD informed villagers of Anaprang and Muzai village about ceasing rations under Government’s pressure, which was the only hope for these two villages.
In the food ration process, each individual were given 13.5 kg of rice,1 liter of oil, 1 kg of seed, and a pack of salt/family, where military use to snatch ¾ kg of rice/person.
“Ration distributed by the NGOs were not even enough to survive, where authorities are further worsening the starving situation by ceasing the whole ration process”, explains a villager on the condition of anonymity.
From 2012 these villagers were living under starving situation, where little ration by NGO’s was the only hope. Now they have been informed of ceasing ration, commencing from August, 2016.
Moreover they were asked to list down the vulnerable villagers, where whole village rely on ration. In the conversation villagers explained their starving situation and urged to provide ration for the whole village, where all are in starving situation, due to restriction of movement and land confiscation.
In spite of living in their ancestral land, these two villages are like open prisons, as they are surrounded by 24 Maugh villages, where Arakanese Rohingyas are persecuted in every possible way by Magh villagers, Military, BGP and other governmental authorities.
Starving to death is another genocidal tool, which is widely implemented by the government authorities along with Maughs for the ongoing Rohingya Genocide.
