Despite the government says that the situation has been under controlled, there are more harassment, sexual abuses, arbitrary arrest, looting, extortion, brutal abuses are going on, particularly in northern Arakan.
According to reliable sources attained by (ERCA), we would like to double confirm that recent and ongoing violence in Arakan is a well planned pogrom of ethnic cleansing by directly involvement of current Rakhine political party-RNDP's president Dr Aye Maung, Tak Thu Aung of Kuan Yat Rakhine National Society, chairman U Shwe Tun Aung of the Merchant Association of Arakan, Rakhine Rakhita Association, (monk) Sayadaw U Pinya Zya Ra who entered from Bangladesh and created similar riot in Sittwe during early 2001 and along side with former Gen.Khine Nyunt, U Khin Shwe, U Khin Yin.
There were a large number of Rakhine authority personally involved in recent violences. But we able to identify a few are;
Police officer Aung Kyaw Khant and Paramilitary officer Than Htin from Maungdaw township; 
Chairman U Tan Win of Aungmingala village, RNDP member Balagyi and a former weight player Ko Thein Shwe from Sittwe township; and
Chief inspector U Tin Oo from Rathedaung township.
