The local authorities are going door to door in Pauktaw town of western Rakhine State to check illegal entry of Bengalis.
The team talked with people aged 18 years and above. They inquired details about their parents and grandparents.
The people wrote down their statements. However, many did not agree to write “Bengalis” as their race and put their signs.
“Staff from Department of Immigration and National Registration told us that it’s ok if we don’t sign in our statements. We could sign had there been any option of “Rohingya” as race,” explained Adu Salem from Sitkaepyin.
Many information in their statements are different from those found in the household registration list.
