The Myanmar parliament approved last week a government request to purchase a hundred new vehicles, and the list includes five bulletproof Mercedes-Benz sedans. The vehicles will be used by the government for fostering international relations within the country, which includes hosting the 2014 ASEAN Summit.
As for the five bulletproof Mercedes-Benz cars, they will be used by nation leaders who have requested them. Myanmar currently doesn’t have any of those, hence the request to purchase those particular vehicles.
The request, proposed by the Ministry of National Planning and Economic Development, involves a budget of 18 billion kyat, or around $2.09 million. Member of Parliament Min Swe suggested that the amount indicated in the proposal should be halved. The Parliament, however, approved the full budget.
Last year, there was already a proposal to purchase bulletproof sedans, but it was shot down by Parliament then.
Media organisations, including the Myanmar Press Council, have unanimously objected to the Ministry of Information’s draft press bill that was published in state-run newspapers on February 27.
The draft legislation violates the right to free publication guaranteed by Article 354 (A) of the Constitution, they say.
They called the draft legislation dishonest, saying its eight chapters and 28 sections aimed to manipulate the media and control printing and publishing.
The draft legislation marks a return to the censorship of the past, they said, explaining that it requires those who want to print, publish and open news agencies to register their business with a registration officer appointed by the ministry who has the right to suspend or cancel the publication permit.
Aung Kyi, who became Information Minister on August 27 last year, revoked the Myanmar Core Press Council and temporarily formed the Myanmar Press Council. The minister said that the interim press council and his ministry would jointly draft the press law.

They are the major hindrances working for democratisation of Burma.
Burma: It is wrong soldiers sitting in the parliament occupying 25% of the seats, it is wrong to spend defense expense budget representing 24 percent of all the ministries’ state expense and it is wrong economic militarisation in Burma by “The Union of Myanmar Economic Holdings Limited (UMEHL) and The Myanmar Economic Corporation (MEC), two major conglomerates run by the Burmese military (through the Ministry of Defence).
