100 police officers who left Maungdaw police station were charged under Section 505

Around 100 police officers have resigned and fled from Maungdaw district police base and Myoma police station in Rakhine State. All of them are now charged with treason under section 505 at Maungdaw Myoma police station, said a source in the police community.


"Many police officers have already fled and more are joining them. Lately around 100 police officers have resigned," added the source.


Since the return of gun fighting between the junta soldiers and Arakha Army (AA) fighters on 13 November 2023, the number of resignations and fleeing incidents only increased in Maungdaw district police and Myoma police station.


"Among those who fled, there are police officers along with a number of constables. Some even fled with weapons. Many left for their towns and villages, whereas some fled to join the AA,” stated the source.


Those who have resigned or fled, whether armed or unarmed, have been charged with treason under section 505 at  Maungdaw Myoma police station.
