(DIYOLTOLI, Arakan Province Burma May) - The Nasaka, the Burmese border security force, arrested Sabet Ali, age 40 from Diyoltoli in the Maungdaw district of Arakan on March 3rd 2013. The case the Nasaka filed against him claimed he was communicating to foreign countries using a Bangladeshi mobile phone. The punishment for this is a long term jail sentence, with no need for proper procedure or even legal evidence of the mobile phone. The Nasaka and the police both use Bangladeshi mobile phones obtained through local Rakhines, for whom there are no restrictions on traveling between Bangladesh and Burma. The detainee Sabet Ali begged for pardon from the Nasaka, pleading for freedom to go home and take care of his children who are still very young. He was set free after a bribe of 400,000 Kyat, or 463.23$ USD to Nasaka personnel. The Nasaka, police and para-military all use tactics such as questionable allegations like this to wrest money from the Rohingya Muslims on a daily basis.
