Karen Community Based Organizations issued a position paper on the repatriation of refugees along the Thai-Burma border back to Burma saying it is critical that they are included in the process.
The KCBO in a statement paper said that all pre-conditions should be met and procedures need to be in place before refugees are returned otherwise it will be against the will of the refugees or disrespectful to their rights.
The KCBO in a statement paper have requested that before the return of refugees can happen, there needs to be a nationwide ceasefire agreed to by the government and the ethnic armed groups, a de-mining program started, the guaranteed security of all refugees and that all human right violations, including the confiscation of villagers lands must stop.
Naw Dah Eh Kler, spokesperson for KCBO and the general secretary of the Karen Women Organization, spoke toKaren News about the groups concerns of the repeated media and community talk about repatriation.
“We’ve been hearing rumors refugees would be sent back but when we make inquiries, no one seems to know for sure. We want to say that whenever this does happen we, the KCBOs, must be recognized as a stakeholder and be allowed to take part in the process.”
Naw Dah Eh Kler said that the KCBOs is composed of those groups that are working with refugee and migrant communities based along the Thai-Burma border and without their participation, refugee repatriation should not be carried out.
The KCBOs, acknowledge that despite the Burma government wanting to have all refugees in camps along Thai-Burma border returned, it is the responsibility of the Thai government and the United Nation High Commission for Refugees to carry out the process.
The Karen Community Based Organizations (KCBOs) is an alliance of Karen groups working on education, health, relief assistance, environment, community development and human rights. These groups have been working in response to humanitarian crises in Karen areas and along the Thai‐Burma border and deliver assistance Continue reading “Burma_Thailand:KWO and Karen Community Based Organizations(KCBO) Position Paper on Refugees’ Return”
Hkun Htun Oo, leader of the Shan Nationalities League for Democracy (SNLD) that had won the most seats in Shan State in the 1990 elections, is leaving for Washington D.C. this evening, according to SNLD sources.
The government may be serious about making peace with the non-Burman rebels, but the Army is negotiating with Russia for the purchase of unidentified missiles, according to a source close to the diplomatic circle.
Maj Gen Zarni Win, chief of the defense services armaments purchase, was assigned on 22 August by the War Office to arrange for the transaction, according to him. The source however apologized he was unable to give more specific details. “I’m not a military man,” he said. “But I can assure you that the missiles will be used against ethnic armies.”
Burma has not been fighting against foreign armies on its home made rebel movements supported by foreign powers since China terminated its moral and material aid to the Communist Party of Burma (CPB) following the passing away of Mao Zedong in 1976.
So far Russia has sold several military items to Burma, especially MiG 29s.
President Thein Sein, during his meeting with Karen National Union (KNU) delegation in April said, “Killing a Karen soldier is the loss of a countryman in our country. Death of a Burmese soldier in action means the loss of a citizen of our country. So do Kachin, Mon and Chin soldiers. So the losses of these people are the losses of the country. We should regret these losses.”
However, constitutionally the President does not have any jurisdiction over military matters. If he has any complaints, he can lodge them at the National Defense and Security Council, the country’s highest organ, made up of 6 military and 5 civilian members.

Sai Aung Myat, one of detained godfather Sai Naw Kham’s lieutenants, is yet to return from China, although he was suppose to be back in Burma within a week. He was taken out of Kengtung prison on 28 August by Chinese authorities. The Burmese police officials had reportedly escorted him only as far as Taping on the Lwe. He was then tied up, blindfolded and taken across the Mongla-Daluo checkpoint into China. (SHAN)

Myanmar’s Eleven Media Group and The Nation have jointly launched an English-language website to serve the growing demand for news and information from Myanmar.
The website, http://www.elevenmyanmar.com, is updated daily and is divided into 10 sections, ranging from national, business and Asean-related news to tourism and lifestyle coverage. Eleven Media, Myanmar’s largest private publisher, and Nation Multimedia Group’s The Nation will operate the website.
Dr Than Htut Aung, chairman and chief executive officer of Eleven Media, and a team of reporters are in Bangkok to participate in the launch of the website with The Nation, led by editor-in-chief Suthichai Yoon.
“The website will provide information of the progress in reforms, news, events and business activities taking place in Myanmar. The changes for the country have been remarkable over the past year,” Dr Than said.
Members of The Nation’s editorial staff have been working alongside Eleven Media both in Yangon and Bangkok, with an exchange of reporters taking place over the past few months. Eleven Media already operates Myanmar’s biggest English-language mobile SMS (short message service) news and a Facebook page in Burmese, and also publishes four weekly news and sports publications.
Business-related activities inside Myanmar have grown by leaps and bounds after the West started lifting sanctions. In addition, the government has been busy passing new legislation, which includes a more liberal foreign-investment law. The tight press-censorship system has also been dismantled.
Apart from providing news related to Myanmar, Thailand and other Asean nations, elevenmyanmar.com will also provide a video service in the near future thanks to a comprehensive partnership in both editorial and multimedia publishing services. Advertising can be booked via The Nation and/or Eleven Media.
