Rohingyas in Buthidaung town and many surrounding villages have been given the official receipt by government officials after handing over their white cards, says locals.
The receipt contains personal details that were inscribed in the white card. It is also mentioned that the document is temporary and it must be shown to the authorities when they ask for it.
The present and permanent addresses of the subjects are also mentioned.
Rohingyas in some border villages including the 2014 massacre site of Kiladong (Du Char Yar Taan) have however not been given the temporary documents leaving them without any official documents. Locals fear that they might be pushed over the border to Bangladesh when they fail to show any proof of address.
When Rohingyas asked the Aishwaramu of Kiladong, Md Sultan why they were not given any official documents similar to other villages, he replied, “how the others run their areas is their business. Here I shall run it like I please.”
