A tabbe is embezzling large amounts of money given by an international donor organisation in Hawar Bil of Maungdaw North.
Local sources say an UN funded agency recently asked tabbe Noor Alam to make a list of houses damaged in the cyclone and floods. Noor made the list but instead of giving the relief materials to those who needed it, he distributed it among friends and relatives, keeping a large portion for himself.
While aid have been flowing to the Rakhine community in Arakan, help for Rohingyas, the worst affected community has been few and far between. But wherever international humanitarian organisations and Islamic charities have injected aid, unscrupulous Rohingya leaders have siphoned large amounts of the relief materials.
Meanwhile, flood affected Rohingyas continue to suffer from hunger, disease and lack of shelter.
