Narinjara News, 11 April 2024

 

The junta forces have arrested the administrator of Gone Chwein village-tract under  Kyaukphyu township of Rakhine State.

 

On 9 April at 10:30 pm, U Maung Aye Kyi, the administrator, was arrested from his residence, said the family members.

 

"They arrested him citing  no reason. He is probably being detained at 34th infantry battalion base,” said a family member.

 

The family members are demanding his immediate release.

 

A former member of Pyithu Hluttaw from Kyaukphyu locality commented that the local people are now scared after witnessing the arbitrary arrest of an  administrator by the soldiers.

 

"If they can arrest a village administrator for no reason during the water festival, which the military junta is also planning to celebrate, anybody can be picked up. It reflects a dangerous atmosphere,” he added.

 

According to the humanitarian and development cooperation office (HDCO) of the ULA/AA, the military junta has arrested 471 civilians, including 47 women, from 13 November to 21 March.
