Military bans media outlets from publishing Kokang group’s statements.
The Military Authoritative Information Team today sent a letter to Myanmar Press Council (Interim) informing that the local news media outlets are not to cover any statements released by Myanmar National Democratic Alliance Army (MNDAA).

The letter carried two points. The first point is that representatives from MNDAA (Kokang rebel group) are reported to have been attending the conference of the leaders of ethnic armed groups being held in Panghsan, Shan State (East). The second point states that as MNDAA is declared an unlawful association by the government, the news media outlets are barred from broadcasting or publishing MNDAA’s statements coming from the conference. The letter warned that any media outlet that fails to follow the instruction will face action in accord with the existing laws.

The warning letter is dated May 8, which falls on World Press Freedom Day. The letter said MNDAA is declared an unlawful organisation. According to the Unlawful Associations Act, anyone who contacts or assists the unlawful associations will face a three-year imprisonment under section 17(1) and a five-year imprisonment under section 17(2).

“From my point of view, there are two parts to consider: the criteria of press freedom and the country’s current situation. This declaration is unreasonable from the perspective of press freedom. It is not in line with the freedom of expression. This is from criteria viewpoint. When this is to be linked with the country’s present situation, Myanmar’s press freedom index is at the bottom of the list because it hasn’t been long that the military regime has shifted into a semi-civilian government. The military still intervenes in the political sphere. The attitude of the military is that this is their ‘Type Organisation’. The battles with the armed group called Kokang are different from those happened with other groups. There are conflicts and they are sensitive. So, I want to say that we need to keep on going cleverly in accord with the condition of the country and the standards of press freedom,” said Kyaw Min Swe, the secretary of the Myanmar Press Council (Interim).

“Other armed ethnic groups including MNDAA have been in attendance at Panghsan’s ethnic conference. If the media expresses the news released from MNDAA, action will be taken. Why is an action taken against other ethnic groups apart from the MNDAA? Taking actions against the media and not taking action against the ethnic groups are not fair. Therefore, the statements and announcements coming from Panghsan ethnic conference should not be recognised and actions should be taken against. It looks to be an indirect way to control the media. It can have negative effect on the media because it is useless for the law,” vice chairman Phoe Thawkyar of interim MPC said. cr. eleven media

Expert at academy of military sciences accused of aiding ethnic-Chinese rebel forces, according to sources familiar with the case

A senior Chinese military strategist has been investigated for allegedly leaking state secrets, helping armed rebels in Myanmar in their fight against government forces, plus fraud, according to three independent sources familiar with the case.

Major General Huang Xing, the former head of the research guidance department at the Chinese Academy of Military Sciences, was detained for “serious disciplinary violations” earlier this year, a form of words often used by the Communist Party to describe allegations of corruption.

He was among the 14 generals the PLA Daily announced on Monday had been detained for alleged graft or related crimes over the last two months.

A source close to the academy said Huang’s chief offence was violating military discipline by allegedly leaking state secrets to rebels in the Kokang region of northern Myanmar during fighting in the Southeast Asian nation in 2009.

The main rebel force in Kokang is the Myanmar National Democratic Alliance Army, who are ethnic-Chinese and once formed part of Communist Party forces in the region.


“He [Huang] was arrested recently and charged with committing fraud,” an academic source said, but gave no further details.

Another source who claimed to be Huang’s friend told the South China Morning Post that the major general was charged with “swindling 1 million yuan” (HK$1.25 million).

The details are not clear, but the friend suggested the allegation was a pretext to take Huang down.

“One million yuan should not be a strong enough reason to charge a major general. Other generals facing corruption investigations have all allegedly received much more than that,” the friend said.

“Huang’s family already turned in the 1 million yuan, but the authorities still went ahead and charged him. I suspect somebody is just waiting for an opportunity to bring him down.”

The PLA Daily reported that Huang was investigated by the military graft-busters in January over “serious disciplinary violations”.

His case has been passed to military judicial institutions, it added. The military newspaper did not mention Huang’s alleged relationship with Kokang rebels.

The People’s Liberation Army strictly forbids officials contacting foreign military personnel without prior approval.

Myanmar’s chief of military affairs security last month alleged that Kokang rebel forces had received training and advice from former Chinese soldiers during a recent upsurge in fighting.

He also hinted the rebels had received support from China. The Foreign Ministry in Beijing and the Kokang rebel leader denied the claim.

“I was surprised when I read Huang’s name on the list of the 14 disgraced generals,” said Professor Arthur Ding Shu-fan, a PLA expert at the Taipei-based Chinese Council of Advanced Policy Studies.

“Huang is quite famous for his research work on military strategies. As a military scholar, I don’t think he would be implicated in corruption because he doesn’t have many opportunities to take bribes.”

Two retired senior colonels said Huang’s detention was a combination of various factors.

They said Huang’s involvement with the Kokang rebels was a “political mistake” and an embarrassment to the PLA hierarchy.

“The fact that this is not mentioned [in the PLA Daily report] suggests that the top leaders may feel embarrassed. Instead they picked up another convenient charge to punish him with,” one of the retired officers said.

Questioned the “non-interference in internal affairs”? 2015-02-28 17:19:03 Non-interference in the internal affairs of the DPRK has been seen as an important principle of diplomacy, the divine can not be questioned, after years of propaganda, popular. But in today’s world, recognized the principle of non-interference in internal affairs, and almost all of the small and the weak, because of their ability to not interfere with other countries’ internal affairs, afraid to interfere in its internal affairs of other countries in turn. United States, Russia these countries, does not recognize this principle, contrary to their own interests, and sometimes also “for humanitarian purposes,” “out of international responsibility” considerations, righteous interference in internal affairs. Even small European countries Albania, because the same family of Kosovar Albanians in the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia by the so-called discrimination against oppression, but also the courage to stand up to “interference in the internal affairs of the FRY” Support fighting for independence of Kosovo. These countries interfering in other countries’ internal affairs, it really is much ado about nothing, vexatious, bullying you? Definitely not. In today’s world, people and economic exchanges frequently irreversible trend of globalization, between countries difficult as ancient as never in contact with intercourse, something of a country, often involves the interests of other countries, is not simple is the internal affairs of the country.

2015-02-25 by 缅华都市报

Wensday morning, Luo and his family woke up as usual, ready to prepare breakfast. His ten years-old son woke up first to get some firewood in the hunt. However, in this very room where he goes to fetch firewood for his family’s breakfast every day, nobody would suspect it was mined!

After hearing the loud nosie, Luo and his family run out to the hunt and saw the boy grabbing his leg and crying. Severely wounded, the kid was sent to Nansan hospital China. Unfortunately, the doctor were not able to save the kid due to loosing too much blood beforehand.

Few last glimpses of the kid left for the world: As above
According to Luo, yesterday (Tuesday), the February 24th , Burmese junta came to “search” their village, and Luo’s family was able to escaped beforehand. Moreover, two civilians’ home were set on fire and burned down during the “search”.
