Police Extorted A Rohingya Shopkeeper, Maung Daw

On 13 Dec 2012, at 3:00PM, Win Htay Oo, a police vice corporal went to a Rohingya shopkeeper Mohamed Solam s/o Kasim (27Yr) hailed from Nyaung Chaung village tract while he was selling his own shop (Shop no: 3C-13) in Maung Daw Municipal Market where the police threatened the shopkeeper saying that he is included in the FIR list recently released by Maung Daw court. He was also told to pay money 200,000Ks otherwise he would be arrested and sentenced for long imprisonment. The police extorted 100,000Ks from Solam.
  The FIR lists was released for those who were involved in fuelling on creating the 8 June 2012 riot by Maung Daw court but most of the innocents Rohingyas who do not know anything about riot are included in this list. Due to this list many innocent Rohingyas were tortured, some were even killed and were hidden and some were sentenced for 10 or more year’s imprisonments. Polices have been threatening and extorting money from Rohingyas showing their imitated FIR list in Maung Daw and Buthidaung townships since it had been released. They have extorted even those Rohingyas who had been away from the towns for days with legal movement permission before 8 June 2012 riot begun.
