(CMPO chief) Chalerm – how stupid can you be? I rightly called you the most ignorant Ph.D. in Thailand. Of all these names, only 1 has actually supported us – and it wasn’t even with his own money! Designer Sakchai Guy helped create charity tees, the proceeds of which all go to the PDRC.
If any of those listed are harassed, we have attorneys from two separate law firms ready to handle your cases and provide legal assistance.
Chalerm, I think you’ve just increased the level of donations we’re about to receive. Thank you!
Land Grabbing is serious problem in Burma. Until now, people are suffering from social injustice. The government must help if someone is legally homeless depending on the eligibility of the person. Land grabbing or Land seizures by the military without providing temporary shelter is social injustice and also degrading the people.
The authorities have giving warning to the villagers of Thamee Kalay in Hlegu Township, Yangon Region, who now sheltering at the monastery in Bago Region to leave the region.
They (the villagers) are said to be living on the land owned by the armed forces and their houses were destroyed on 4 February. The villagers are now taking shelter at the Aung Theidi monastery in Bago Region.
“We are forced to move from our houses and so we are now staying at the monastery. But yesterday morning (on 6 February), ward administrative authority came here and give us notice for leaving. We have children attending schools and as the final exam is very near, we asked permission to stay at the monastery until the exam is over. They said they will report the matter to the above. We came here not to invade but our houses at the former places have been destroyed. We have nowhere to go. So, we are sheltering at the monastery,” said Ko Baik Thar on 7 February.
“On 6 February morning, Alai Ni village administrator came here. Together with him, he brought a letter from township administrative officer. The letter expressed that I have to send these homeless people to their original place. What I replied was these people have no home and they are homeless refugees sheltering here. I couldn’t say no to them. If they want to do according to the law, do what they want. I’ll do what what I should do,” said Bhadanta Agga Dhammaka, residing monk of Aung Theidi monastery.
“In the evening, the deputy township administrator of Bago Region himself came to us. And he made a list on those sheltering here, school children and told us not to build houses for these refugees. But, he also saw the present situation that there were no buildings. What he said was he came here according to the superior’s order. Till now, no forced moving taking place, the monk added.
At present, a total of 149 households of about 500 people are staying there under sub-standard conditions and food shortages.
According to the 2008 Constitution, at the Chapter (8) of citizen, rights for the citizens and duties- Act-355 mentioned that every citizen of Myanmar has the right to live wherever he desires in Myanmar to reside according to law.
Some sad news. When the Victory Monument stage was bombed on 19 January, among those injured by shrapnel was Khun Anonda. His head was injured and he has been in treatment in Rajvithi Hospital since the incident. It turns out that his injuries were too severe. He passed away today at 15.00, and is survived by his wife and 3 children. Although they had not joined our demonstrations but were simply vending at Victory Monument that day, they too are a casualty of Yingluck’s violence. The PDRC will donate to the family. They are in our thoughts and prayers tonight.
BANGKOk, 11 February (NNT) – The National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) is expected to press charges against Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra for her role in alleged irregularities in the rice-pledging scheme late this month.
According to Witthaya Arkompitak, an NACC member, the agency has been gathering evidence in order to indict the premier and has summoned rice farmers who have lodged complaints against her to testify.
The NACC earlier recommended to the Pheu Thai government that the programme be suspended due to its massive financial losses and large-scale irregularities.
Mr Witthaya has also made known that the agency is speeding up its investigation into the impeachment case against 383 senators and MPs for their support of the Senate composition constitutional amendment. The case is set to be concluded early in March.
BANGKOK, 11 February 2012 (NNT) – The Center for Maintaining of Peace and Order (CMPO) has issued arrest warrants against four civil servants from the Ministry of Commerce who have appeared on stage of the anti-government People’s Democratic Reform Committee (PDRC). The center might also take legal actions against former civil servants who have alleged that there was corruption in the ministry.
Deputy Minister of Commerce Yanyong Puangrach said arrest warrants had already been issued against the four commerce civil servants and committees had been set up to investigate them. There were video clips showing that they gave speeches on the PDRC’s stage. The clips would be used as evidence, Mr Yanyong said.
It was not appropriate for civil servants to publicly take side in politics and it was definitely in violation of the Emergency Decree to take part in the protests, the deputy minister said.
As for the former civil servants who accused the ministry of widespread corruption, Mr Yanyong said the ministry was deciding whether it could sue them since they had no evidence to support their accusation.
