Girl, 8, raped and starved to death
An eight-year-old girl allegedly raped by a soldier has died at Yangon General Hospital on October 21 of malnutrition.

She was treated at the Yankin Children’s Hospital in Yangon from October 8. Her remains will be buried in Yangon, according to Sittwe elder Than Htun.

She was from Danyawati ward in Sittwe, Rakhine State. Her mother died of leukaemia and the child had since shown signs of mental illness and suffered from malnutrition. She told her neighbours that she was raped on September 22 by a solider who stayed at her house temporarily.

A DNA test is been carried out to support the accusation.

The accused rapist Sergeant Nay Win Aung from Regiment 354 was charged in Sittwe on September 23 but was taken by military personnel to be tried in a military court. It was reported that Nay Win Aung was charged with drinking, absence without leave and defaming the military, according to the Sittwe-based coordination committee of Rakhine social organisations.

If he is found guilty, he will be expelled from the military and transferred to a civilian court and tried again.

Anti-NLD protest rejected
San Tin, who requested permission to hold a 300-strong protest against the National League for Democracy’s campaign in Thandwe, has officially retracted his submission, according to Thandwe Township’s police Captain Khin Zaw.
The main reason for the withdrawal was, according to the law, such a protest required a minimum of five days to process.
“San Tin came and told us that he isn’t going to do it anymore and retracted his submission in front of two witnesses. We gave him back the papers, he signed and went away,” said the captain.
The other person who applied for a similar protest, Thein Shwe, was also warned that action would be taken against him if he proceeded without legal permission.
Aung San Suu Kyi’s two-day visit to Thandwe, Rakhine State, has around 700 security personnel from numerous townships. She will also have 30 NLD-affiliated security staff and around 300 guards on the road between cities.
One Rakhine woman said: “A lot of us know Aung San Suu Kyi for who she is. Although most Thandwe residents know who is who, those from upper Rakhine region are not so welcoming towards her. Some came to Thandwe to instigate racial conflicts and we do not want to say anything because we have lived with them for as far as I can remember. If we have anything to say, we have to say it to the immigration department who let them in. Now there are people who want to protest against [the NLD] but we do not want anything that will cause trouble in the city.”
A Thandwe official said: “There is an official order that we cannot join the party but we still have our right to vote. We will vote for change. Ministers change and their houses multiply while nothing for us changes. We desperately need a proper leader. I cannot openly support her now but the answer will be there in the election.”
