Tin Nilar Aung (aka Mee Nge), the user of facebook account ‘Nilar Aung’, was arrested by the military council on Wednesday from Zay Taung ward in Ann township of Rakhine State.


The military-run Myanmar Alin newspaper reported that the facebook user was arrested by 3:45 pm on 6 December. The social media user was accused of engaging in incitement and propaganda against the nation creating disturbances in peace and stability of the country.


In recent days, a number of Rakhine nationals have been arrested by the military council for criticizing the junta forces on social media. They have been accused of spreading wrong news with the intention to create public disorder.


Earlier two individuals including a woman were arrested from Sittwe and they have been charged under section 505-A.


The arrested individuals are Ko Kyaw Naing Lin from Lanmadaw (north) ward and Ma Saw Khin Aye (aka Ah Bu) from Ye Nwe Su ward in Sittwe township.


Lately, the junta forces have been engaging in various inhuman actions violating human rights of Rakhine people.


The army, navy, and air force personnel have been using artillery shells and continuous firing. Even the Rakhine-based media outlets have also been targeted by the military council for reporting against the violations committed by junta soldiers.
