Buthidaung Correspondent: Buthidaung township administrator has been transferred to another township from Buthidaung on 25 March 2016.
Source said, “The township administrator is a Rakhine community from Mrauk Uu Township who has performed his responsibility as township administrator in Buthidaung for years. He was so cruel that the town residents including villagers under the Buthidaung were harassed and suppressed in different forms under his administration.
The township administrator used to instruct his lower administrators of villages and law enforcers to realize money from villagers involving in different types of false allegations as he got shares of tolls. Many innocent people were tortured and sent to jail accusing in concocted cases for failing to pay toll money to him.
Furthermore, the villagers were harassed and persecuted by the village administrators and law enforcers as per his encouragement and direction fabricating false allegations against the innocent people which were easy tactics of extortion”.
“Having heard and known the transfer of the immoral and wicked township administrator, people of villages under Buthidaung Township offered Fateha expressing their pleasures over his shifting to another town for which they can relive peace after years. Now the people are praying and wish to Allah for another honest, sincere and kind officer instead” said a teacher of Buthidaung.
