No one entered or exited the border gate at Maungtaw, despite restrictions being recently lifted, according to the Immigration department.
“Since before now, no restrictions were made …  but no one passed through the border gate at Maungtaw, apart from commodity flow” said U Shar Mwe La Khun, head of the immigration department .
“Bangladesh prohibited passing through the gate, so there was no one coming in and going out”.
Passing through the gate is now allowed after careful scrutiny in accord with the law. Two-night-and-three-day border passes and one-day border passes are being granted.
Prior to the 9 October  violent armed attacks, there were up to 100 people leaving and entering the gate every day, said U Shar Mwe La Khun.—Myanmar News Agency
