Mr. tomas Ojea Quintana
Human Rights Envoy of United Nations

1. We had presented two times to you why and how did this crisis was erupted on
our land. We presumed you will thoroughly understand the situation and concept of ethnic Rakhine people ( Arakanese ) upon this crisis.

2. But you are repeatedly demanding to pay citizenship to all immigrated Bengalis neglecting the Human Rights Declaration article 13(2) and never care our Rakhines’ interest . And you have demand to release one of the key terrorists , Dr Tun Aung with you one sided view .

3. When you declare to come our land , those aggressive intruders, Bengalis , always make some problem .This time they made hostile act even to the authorities concerned . If we lived with them interlacely we would be beheaded and our houses would be burnt down . So we presumed your trip were , if although you have no intents , inciting those intruders , Bengalis . And when everytimes you used the word “ Rohingya “ , which we cannot absolutely accepted ,this calling is amounts to instigation to Bengalis and provokes our Arakaneses’ fury . we want to pay you an example : If a group of English or German Or France Have come to Argentina and settled there , they might probably become citizens of Argentina , but they would never become Argentines or any other new race , because they are still English or German Or France .

4.We have felt that your acts and declaration were always beyond your mandate as a Human Rights envoy , insulting our natives and infringing sovereignty of our country .
5.Abovesaid facts , we , Town Elders of Sittwe , do not need to make more fruitless and useless meeting with you . And we don’t want to answer your bias interrogatories like accused persons, even we are living in our own ancestral land .
