Over 7,000 granted national verification cards in Rakhine

More than 7,000 people have been granted national verification cards (NVC) in Myanmar's Rakhine state since an authentication process started on October 1, authorities said on Sunday.

The process is one of the recommendations proposed by an advisory commission on the state, led by former UN chief Kofi Annan, reports Xinhua news agency.

Using bio-metric methods for the national identity system, the process is being carried out in areas where stability returned to normalcy, U Aung Min, director of the Rakhine state immigration and population department, said.

National verification process is the first step toward scrutinising citizenship in accordance with the 1982 Citizenship law, the officer said, urging local people to hold national verification cards as long as they live in Myanmar under the 1949 and 1951 Union Citizenship Acts.

Meanwhile, Myanmar has formed nine private sector task forces to join the mechanism of union enterprises for humanitarian assistance, resettlement and development (UEHRD) in Rakhine, chaired by state counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi.

The newly established mechanism aims to allow the government and all local and international organizations to work in all sectors and all strata of society for the development of the state.

Suu Kyi prioritised three main tasks for Rakhine repatriation of refugees who have crossed over to Bangladesh and providing humanitarian assistance effectively, resettlement and rehabilitation, and bringing development and lasting peace to the region.

The government is also ready to implement a national verification and repatriation process in accordance with agreed criteria set out in a joint statement between foreign ministries of Myanmar and Bangladesh in 1992.
