(RANGOON, Burma) - We are told that the Myanmar government has organized a commission which includes Immigration, Nasaka (Border Security Force), Military, etc to investigate Rohingyas to determine if they are citizens of Myanmar according to the 1982 citizenship law or not. They are using three questioning forms (papers).

According to a local Rohingya from Pauk Taw, on 10th of Nov 2012, the commission went to the house of Soyod Hussein @ Dudu Meya s/o Abdu Sothor in Anauk Yway @ Aanu Raing village tract, Pauk Taw town ship and forcibly asked Soyod Hussein and his son Emam Hussein to sign on the form (mentioning their ethnicity and religion as Begali and Islam).

The Rohingyas denied to sign saying “we are not Bengali, we are Rohingyas”.

Then they were seriously beaten, at the end they were made to sign on the forms by torturing.

This is in keeping with the problems this culture has faced increasingly in recent months, since Rakhine Buddhist monks began attacking Rohingya families and villages killing untold numbers and creating well in excess of 100,000 refugees.

In the coming days U.S. President Barack Obama and U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will visit Rangoon, Burma, and only time will tell if they call for a real effort to end violence.
