Brief History:
I was born in 1988, in center Nga Khu Ya village, Maungdaw township. My father is Abu Baw Shaw,
and my mother is Zu Lay Khar. I am the 4th of 11 siblings. I went to school from kindergarten until
grade 10, in Nga Khu Ya village. Then, after leaving school, from 2007-2009, I worked as a helper in
the village chief’s office. And, from 2010 until 2013, I taught our village children - from kindergarten
through grade 5. The parents of the students paid me 1500 Burmese kyat [$1 US] a month. There
were about 30 students that studied with me. In 2012 I married Kaw Htee Zar, from center Nga Khu
Ya village. Her father is Ma Men Nya, and her mother is Zaw Da. I have 2 children with my wife. From
2014 until the attacks happened [October 9, 2016] I also worked as a salesman in the shop of U

Aung Sein. He is a Rakhine Buddhist man. The shop bought and sold shrimp, prawns, and crabs. I
was paid 80,000 kyat [$53 US] a month. The shop was in Za Bay Pyi Byin village.

Recruitment:
One day when I was sitting in the teashop with Arabic teacher Mawlawi [Imam] Ar Kis, ( F ) Har Bis,
age 30, and Jamar Mat, ( F ) Eli Yat, age 14, we were having tea and a Bengali Mawlawi named Kar
Baek Tular came and asked me, “Would you like to join the RSO (Rohingya Solidarity Organization) in
Bangladesh?” But I said, “No, I don’t want to because I have a job here.” Then, Mawlawi Kar Baek
Tular asked Mawlawk Ar Kis if he would like to join the RSO. Mawlawi Kar Baek Tular talked about it
and convinced Mawlawi Ar Bis, and he agreed to join them. I didn’t know how much money the RSO
would give to the recruits, like him. This occurred about one month ago [mid-September, 2016].
About two weeks ago, in the same place, two other Bengalis - Mawlawi Adu Ra Man and Mawlawi
Mu Nit - persuasively talked to 30 young Bengali men, but only 10 of them decided to join the
militants at that time. [many more joined later]

Militant Training:
About 20 days ago there was training on land owned by Mawlawi Adu Ra Man. He taught karate
fighting techniques and other skills. Mawlawi Kar Baek Tular campaigned among the young men and
told them that they must take the militant training courses. I heard that they are also giving the
militant training in U Shay Kya village, but I don’t know how many Bengalis attended the training at
that time.

The Militant Group Leaders of the Training Were:


1. Ar Yoke, age – 25, owner of shrimp pond, west U Shay Kya village

2. Mawlawi Ar Yu, age – 30, owner of shrimp pond, west U Shay Kya village

3. Eli Yeak, age – 35, medicine shopkeeper, west U Shay Kya village

4. Bar Bu Yar, age – 35, owner of shrimp pond, north U Shay Kya village

The Main Leaders of the Planning and Execution of the Attacks:


1. Mawlawi Adu Ra Man, ( F ) Ar Ze Rann, general worker, center Nga Khu Ya village

2. Mawlawi Kar Baek Tular, ( F ) Bar Dhar, Nga Khu Ya village

3. Mawlawi Ar Kis, ( F ) Har Bis, Arabic teacher, Nga Khu Ya village

4. Mawlawi Mu Nit, Nga Khu Ya village

These 4 leaders were the main leaders, with the plans to attack the Nga Khu Ya Border Guard Police
Base. They called a lot of meetings in U Shay Kya village, to plan the attacks. And, I heard that 3
Bengalis arrived from Bangladesh and spent 3-4 days in U Shay Kya village, but I don’t know any
details about their visit. I worked in the village chief’s office, when I was living in the village, and I had
a good relationship with other people. I didn’t join those Bengalis when they called a secret meeting.

During the 2nd week of June, 2016, Mawlawi Kar Baek Tular, ( F ) Bar Shar, age 26, from center Nga
Khu Ya village, and Har Kat, ( F ) Mawlawi Mu Tunar, age 32, from north Nga Khu Ya village told me
that we would make a Rohingya State. That’s why we need more and more young Bengalis trained
with militant skills. The Bengalis who have already taken the militant training receive support money
that comes from Saudi Arabia, Malaysia, and Dubai.

If there are any other Bengali people who would like to join the attacks for our religion and our race,
you are always welcome to attend the training. Because Bengali people are always discriminated
against, that is why we will attack the Border Guard Police.

OIC Visitors, Hopes For Free Guns:


And now we have some international people from the OIC (Organization of Islamic Cooperation)
arriving here. We have to work together, and we have to get free guns, so that we can attack and
fight the government. Our group was led by Ar Mi Sat, he is one of the leaders who came here from
another country. He told us that he would like to create a Rohingya State and he will lead us to that
goal. That’s why if you would like to participate in the militant training, please come and attend. He
was very persuasive.

Decided to Take Militant Training:


So, the words of Ar Mi Sat convinced me, and I decided to attend the RSO training. From July 12,
2016, until August 1, I attended the training in the compound of Raw Fee, 35 years old, in the
northern part of U Shay Kya village in the mountains. The training time was from 8 AM to 4 PM. The
owner of that compound and land, Raw Fee taught us how to fight more effectively with knives,
swords, spears, and heavy sticks, as well as guns. Actually, in that training there was only one gun,
but we learned how to use it.

List of Bengali people who attended militant training at the house of Raw Fee, together
with me, in U Shay Kya village, in September, 2016:
1. Nu Mar Mat, ( F ) Gaw Mi Ra Min, age – 24, north Nga Khu Ya village

2. Abu Ru Saung, ( F ) Sha Myar, age – 26, center Nga Khu Ya village

3. Ja Tek, ( F ) Eli Yeak, age – 25, center Nga Khu Ya village

4. Ar Fat, ( F ) Baw De Yar, age – 22, center Nga Khu Ya village

5. Ar Ru Kann, age 25, center Nga Khu Ya village

6. Annawa, ( F ) E Souk, age – 26, owner of shrimp pond, Kapa Gaung village

7. Kaw Fu Bi Ra, ( F ) Kaw Bi Mat, age – 25, south Nga Khu Ya village

8. Eli Yak - age – 35, medicine shopkeeper, U Shay Kya village

9. Ar Yu ( Mawlawi ), age – 32, prawn buying business, U Shay Kya village

10. Raw Fee, ( F ) Du Koo Myar, age – 35, owner of shrimp pond, U Shay Kya village

11. Ar Sit, ( F ) Mar Mat Tar Li, age – 26, owner of shrimp pond, U Shay Kya village

Preparations for the Attacks:


7 days before the attacks against the Border Guard Police [on October 9, 2016] I met Ja Kay, ( F ) Eli
Yats, his age is 20. I meet him near the food market in center Nga Khu Ya village, and he told me that
his group of militants will attack the Nga Khu Ya BGP base and that villagers from Nga Khu Ya
village, U Shay Kya village, and Auk Phyu Maung village will also participate. The next day I met
another man, Gar Fai Dullah, and also Ja Kay again. They told me that the name of their group was
‘Islam Youth Organization’. So, they said that they are planning to attack Nga Khu Ya BGP base.
They told me that about 30 young men from U Shay Kya village will join them, and 15 Bengalis from
Nga Khu Ya village will join them, and another bunch of Bengalis from Auk Phyu Maung village will
altogether attack Nga Khu Ya BGP base.

On October 6, 2016, Mawlawi Maw Je Ular from, center Nga Khu Ya village, and Oo Na, from center
Nga Khu Ya village arrived and told me that they will attack Nga Khu Ya BGP station in the late night
of October 8, and they told me to gather all Bengali Muslims on that day. On October 8, around 2
PM, the village people gathered at the west part of the village, near the rice fields. About 2:30 PM I
saw that more than 100 Bengalis had gathered, with weapons in their hands.

The Attack on Nga Khu Ya Border Guard Police Station:


On October 9, about 3:30 AM, Mawlawi Adu Ra Men led about 80 Bengalis to attack Nga Khu Ya
BGP station. Included were about 20 Bengalis from Nga Khu Ya village, and Ar Raw and his 30
Bengalis from U Shay Kya village, and about 20 Bengalis who came from Bangladesh to join or lead
the attacks.
[See prisoner statement #44 - Anna Mu Har Kane - to see how the following was a lie to avoid
admitting murder] At that time, as they broke into, assaulted the police station, and killed many
officers, I was watching from the corner of the football ground / rice field in front of Nga Khu Ya
border police station. I didn’t join the actual attack, but I watched along with about 40 other
Bengalis. About 5 AM I heard a lot of shooting from the Border Guard Police station, as
reinforcements arrived.

Wounded and Arrested:


At that time I tried to hide behind a tree and then I was shot, in the chest. A ran to my house, despite
my injury. [It must have been a superficial wound, not so serious] After getting to my house, it was
very painful, so I went to Mawlawi Maw Je Ular, and I showed him my wound. The Mawlawi said, “It
is impossible to go to Maungdaw Hospital. You must go to Bangladesh for treatment.” The Mawlawi
instructed his friend to get boat to take me to Bangladesh. His friend’s name is Mohammad Islam,
and he hired Ma Met and his boat, for 5000 Burmese kyat [$3.30 US]. At 10:30 AM we left for
Bangladesh - illegally. At 1 PM we arrived at Nhilla jetty, in Teknef town, Bangladesh. As we arrived I
was arrested by Bangladesh Border Police. 2 days later, on October 11, 2016, I was returned to
Myanmar, from Bangladesh, and sent to Nga Khu Ya Border Guard Police Station.
