BUKIT MERTAJAM: The man believed to be the mastermind behind the brutal killings of Myanmar nationals has been described by a neighbour as looking like the main character of Sivaji The Boss, a Tamil blockbuster.

Anwar, an Indonesian, said the tenant of the “slaughterhouse”, also a Myanmar, wore sunglasses most of the time.

“He has long hair and would sometimes dress up like Indian actor Rajinikanth, who plays the main character in the movie,” he said outside his house in Kampung Pisang, Machang Bubok, yesterday.

However, Anwar, who has been living in the area for eight years, said he did not know the man nor his occupation.

“He kept mostly to himself. He only moved into the house with a woman, who could be his wife, recently,” said the 41-year-old.

“He’s always dressed neatly and is also quite courteous. He would smile at me and my friends whenever he walks by but never speaks to us,” he said.

The construction worker added that the man also prayed at the same mosque every Friday.

“He doesn’t look menacing. We’re really surprised to find out that his home was used as a place to chop up people,” said Anwar.

Noorshah Siti Hazariah Awang said she heard police knocking on her neighbour’s door early Monday morning.

“At that time, we didn’t know what the case was all about,” said the 37-year-old.

“The policemen only said kes berat (serious case). And then I saw the policemen escorting a man into the police car,” she said.

“I never thought that murders could have happened in the house next door to mine as I’ve never heard any screams or suspicious noises,” Noorshah added.

However, Noorshah added that there were always many people at the house.

“There were usually more than four,” she said, adding that there were two women living there. Continue reading “#MALAYSIA #mastermind #brutal #killings of #Myanmar #BUDDHISTS #LOOKLIKE #FILMSTAR”

#UNODC #REPORT #Myanmar and #Lao PDR #produced an estimated #762 #metric tons of #opium,

8 December 2014 – Opium poppy cultivation in Myanmar and Lao PDR rose to 63,800 hectares (ha) in 2014 compared to 61,200 ha in 2013, increasing for the eighth consecutive year and nearly tripling the amount harvested in 2006, according to the Southeast Asia Opium Survey 2014 – Lao PDR, Myanmar .
The report states that Myanmar remains Southeast Asia’s top opium producer – and the world’s second largest after Afghanistan. Together, Myanmar and Lao PDR produced an estimated 762 metric tons of opium, most of which – using smuggled precursor chemicals like acetyl anhydride – was refined into an estimated 76 tons of heroin and then trafficked to markets in neighbouring countries and outside the region.
Transnational crime groups are receiving profitable incentives due to the region’s large demand for heroin. There is a two-way trade involving chemicals going in and heroin coming out of the Golden Triangle, challenging stability and the rule of law in the region. Not only are they bringing in the chemicals needed to make heroin, but are also are trafficking and distributing the drug to markets in China, Southeast Asia and other parts of the world.
Shan State in the north of Myanmar, home to a number of conflict areas and insurgent groups, remains the centre of Myanmar’s opium and heroin activities, accounting for 89 per cent of opium poppy cultivation in the Golden Triangle. In Lao PDR, the survey confirms opium poppy cultivation in the three northern provinces of Phongsali, Xiangkhoang and Houaphan.

Andy Hall
For your information (the sender I removed their name for anonymity reasons but they consented to my sharing the email substance widely), below is a very interesting emailed legal and justice based analysis I received roundly condemning the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) for its role in facilitating the release of public statements by the victims family in Koh Tao case on Friday evening.
I received this email today and found it very thought provoking so wanted to share it on my FB page for get more feedback and opinions!
I personally remain confused on: (1) the actual meaning of the statements; (2) reference to an ‘independent’ UK investigation on the case and; (3) the means by which the FCO facilitated the release of these statements and what FCO role was on advising/authorising/editing (or even writing in some way, I assume not the latter however) these statements – I.e. Is the dissemination of the statements justified by FCO in interests of the victims family, to bring clarity (not sure they did that) or could the statements in any way be seen to prejudice the right to a fair trial of the accused?
I draw no conclusions yet so welcome discussion and thoughts

Subject: Statements Released by Hannah and David’s families through the FCO
Hi Andy:
I continue to applaud your work on behalf of the B2 and other Burmese migrant workers, and a big congrats on your initial victory in your own case.
I saw your tweets about the statements just released by Hannah and David’s families, and understand you have to be publicly diplomatic and respect them, as well as the British govt. whose help you need at times.
But I personally believe that the British government should be directly condemned for facilitating and allowing the release of these statements.
For what it’s worth, here are my complete thoughts on why:
The sincerity and suffering of Hannah and David’s family should be completely respected. Continue reading “#KO #TAO #CASE :#ANDY #HALL #MAILTODAY #condemning the #UK #Foreign and #Commonwealth #Office (FCO)”

Squatters_

The squatter huts along the bank of the Ayeyawady River which were bulldozed five days before the Norwegian king’s one-day visit to Mandalay are being rebuilt, but the residents are struggling to pay the construction costs.
The authorities also stopped loading services when the slums were destroyed at Gaw Wein jetty, removing the squatters’ income.
“We cannot afford to eat because we have not worked in five days. We only earn a little because of checks on ships’ commodities. The majority of us cannot afford to buy timber and nails to rebuild our homes,” said Ko Oo, whose home was flattened.
Officials from Mandalay development committee say the huts along the Strand Road and near the port are squats and the residents have been allocated new land in Pyigyitagun Township since 1995.
Ko Oo, however, said: “I am a native of Mandalay. I have always lived here. Our family has not received a plot. It is not true that everyone living here has been allocated land. We left here when the authorities moved us but we have returned because there is nowhere else to go.”
The Mandalay tax officer at the city development committee said: “I am too busy to answer this. I have no authority to decide if action should be taken against them. We have to seek an order from above as to whether we will demolish the rebuilt houses or not.”
Just hours after the Norwegian king’s visit, all work to improve the area, such as new flowers, was reportedly removed.
Some elderly people and children have been sick after sleeping outside because of their forced eviction.
King Harald V told Norwegian broadcaster NRK that Myanmar’s attempt to hide its poverty was unacceptable. CR. EMG
