10 Rohingya Boat People Feared Dead

Banda Aceh/ Sittwe-- 10 Rohingya people are feared dead as they have been missing since they jumped off the boat, near the coast of southern Myanmar, which later reached to Aceh province of Indonesia on April 6.

 

A small boat with 15 people on board left from 'Ohn Taw Gyi (Barizaa Fara) in Sittwe (Akyab) beach between 26th and 27th March. After travelling for 3 days, they got near the coast of ‘Kau Thaung’ Township in Southern Myanmar, where they were stopped and detained by the Myanmar navy. 

 

As the Myanmar navy began to torture them, 10 people jumped off the boat and have been missing since then.

 

"We were total 15 people on the boat. Since Myanmar navy began torturing us, 10 people couldn't suffer anymore and jumped off the boat. Since then, we have no information about their whereabouts," said a Rohingya boat man survived after rescued by Indonesian fishermen off the coast of Aceh.

 

“After torturing us for a few days, the Myanmar navy set us adrift to the sea from where we arrived here,” the man added.

 

When contacted, the relatives of the missing people said that they didn't information about their whereabouts either.

 

Another boat that left from Akyab (Sittwe) between 11th and 12th April should get to Malaysia anytime soon.
