Squatters in Maungtaw relocated
Maungtaw, July 11
MAUNGTAW Township authorities have relocated squatters near Thinbawgway Village in Maungtaw to a temporary shelter established at a monastery in a nearby village.
Following the relocation on Monday, the authorities also provided food and clothes to 24 families of squatters illegally settling in the village.
The Maungtaw Township General Administration Department issued two orders in February warning the squatters not to settle in the village without seeking permission from authorities. They were warned that action would be taken in accordance with the law against those who do not comply with the order.
To accommodate the squatters, 100 buildings are under construction in a new area with the arrangement of the Rakhine State government.
