Shan State Army ‘South’SSA sends protest letter after 24th clash
The Shan State Army (SSA) ‘South’ sent a letter of protest to Gen Soe Win, Deputy Supreme Commander and Commander of the Burma Army, yesterday following a clash which took place in Laikha, Shan State South, on Wednesday, 27 June.
An SSA patrol was attacked by Burma Army patrol from Infantry Battalion 64, based in Laikha, near Mark Khi Nu mountain, Wan Yerng tract, Laikha township, according to the letter.
This latest clash marks the 24th military confrontations between the two sides since the ceasefire agreement was signed on 2 December 2011, and the 7th since Gen Soe Win first attended the negotiations on 19 May.
The letter, dated 28 June 2012, and signed by the SSA’s chief liaison officer Brig-Gen Sai Lu, said. “The clashes are taking a terrible toll on the trust-building process.”
So far, there is no response from Gen Soe Win.
The 6 previous clashes, as reported by SHAN, were:
23 May 2012 Pongpakhem, Mongton township, where the Burma Army was “in search of a deserter”
2 June 2012 SSA unit assigned to jointly conduct survey with the Burma Army in Monghta shelled by the Burma Army
16 June 2012 Infantry Battalions (IBs) 225 and 65 attack SSA base in Pongpakhem, Mongton township
17 June 2012 Light Infantry Battalion (LIB) 515 attacks SSA base in Ook Look, Namhsan township
19 June 2012 IB 249 patrol ran into SSA patrol near Na Lawn village, Pang Poi tract, Mongkeung township, due to non-advance notification as agreed earlier
19 June 2012 LIB 575 column attacking SSA at Hsaikhao, Kunhing township
On the other hand, the Restoration Council of Shan State / Shan State Army (RCSS/SSA), as the SSA South is officially known, has been allowed to hold public consultations on current political, military, social and economic situation by Naypyitaw. It was also been discussing with state level Central Committee for Drug Abuse Control (CCDAC), Burma’s answer to the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and Thailand’s Office of Narcotics Control Board (ONCB). Both sides so far have agreed that cooperation from all state agencies, especially the military, is necessary, if a meaningful result is to be achieved on the drug front.

BROUK ADDRESSES BRITISH PARLIAMENT ON ARAKAN CRISIS
The President of the Burmese Rohingya Organisation UK (BROUK), Tun Khin together with Benedict Rogers (East Asia Team Leader, Christian Solidarity Worldwide) and Chris Lewa (Co-ordinator for Arakan Project) presented evidence of the persecution of Rohingyas in Arakan State at a meeting in the British Parliament today. The meeting was chaired by Baroness Kinnock, Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Democracy in Burma, and focused on the current crisis in Arakan State, Burma.
Tun Khin told the parliamentary meeting that the current crisis was well planned and organized by hardliners within the regime, who do not want to see reforms in Burma, and the Rakhine National Development Party (RNDP). In recent months, there have been an increasing number of anti-Rohingya activities, including seminars in Rangoon and in Arakan State organized by RNDP, and anti-Rohingya demonstrations.
According to Tun Khin, at least 650 Rohingyas have been killed by Rakhine and government forces, and at least 1200 are missing. More than 80,000 Rohingyas are displaced, 22 villages have been burned down and 14 mosques destroyed. Bangladesh has refused entry to Rohingyas trying to flee the violence, and has pushed back at least 16 boats from Sittwe. The curfew imposed by President Thein Sein has only been applied to Rohingyas and not Rakhine..During curfew time Rohingyas stayed in their homes, while Rakhine and government authorities burned down Rohingya villages and looted Rohingya shops in Sittwe and Maungdaw.
Tun Khin said: “We really need UN observers in Arakan State. Even though the riot was stopped some Rohingya houses are still being burned down by Rakhines, and in the last few days Rakhine police officers and Paramilitary Forces joined together and have been arresting Rohingya men, looting and raping Rohingya girls. We urge the British government to put effective pressure on the Burmese regime to stop the killings and violence against the Muslim Rohingyas in Arakan and to restore peace and security in the region, to allow the international community and NGOs to provide immediate humanitarian assistance to all the victims regardless of race or religion. We call for pressure on the regime to ensure that displaced Rohingya people can return to their original villages safely and freely. We call on the international community to urge the Bangladesh government to keep its border open to Rohingyas fleeing persecution and violence in Arakan. We also urge the Burmese government to restore our citizenship and ethnic rights, to stop anti-Muslim activities and racism in burma. There should be laws on racism if the regime want to see durable peace in Burma. There is a solution if the regime is willing to negotiate between the two communities.”
