Ethnic armed groups removed from blacklist
The Ministry of Home Affairs announced on October 12 that three ethnic armed groups have been removed from the list of unlawful associations. These groups are among the eight that have pledged to sign the nationwide ceasefire agreement (NCA).

The ethnic delegation met with government representatives in Nay Pyi Taw on October 12, and the announcement was made during their meeting.

The three armed groups removed from the blacklist are the Karen National Union, the Restoration Council of Shan State/Shan State Army and the All Burma Students’ Democratic Front.

The project groups signing the NCA, including the Chin National Front, Pa-Oh National Liberation Organisation, Karen National Liberation Army – Peace Council, Democratic Karen Benevolent Army and Arakan Liberation Party, were not blacklisted.

Twenty local witnesses, including Aung San Suu Kyi and Khun Tun Oo, were invited to the NCA signing ceremony.

Suu Kyi expressed concern over the partial participation of ethnic armed groups in the agreement.

“We understood that the nationwide ceasefire would include the whole country. To the best of our knowledge, there are seventeen ethnic armed groups. And we learned that not more than eight groups will sign the deal. If we’re invited, the party will send a representative. But we want all ethnic groups to sign the agreement. We believe we should sign the agreement only if it’s signed by all parties. If we sign it without the others, we’re afraid it would estrange them. We welcome the progress on the ceasefire deal, but we’d like to participate in the agreement only if it’s fully inclusive,” Suu Kyi said on October 11.

The NLD will send its central committee member Win Htein to the signing ceremony as its representative. eleven media

The talks have been complicated by renewed fighting in the Kokang region of Shan state, where ethnic Chinese rebels have engaged in fierce battles with Myanmar security forces since February. The Kokang rebels are not part of the peace negotiations. A deal has also remained exlusive with ethnic rebels in Kachin state.


The Union Peacemaking Working Committee (UPWC) and the Nationwide Ceasefire Coordination Team (NCCT) reached an agreement yesterday on a draft of the nationwide ceasefire deal after a series of meetings.
The agreement came shortly after the seventh round of ceasefire talks between the UPWC and NCCT. The parties discussed all points included in chapters 1 to 7 from March 17-22 in Yangon. They resumed talks on March 30 to discuss the remaining points after a seven-day break.
Hla Maung Shwe from the Myanmar Peace Centre (MPC) said at a press conference: “Both sides have agreed to all points in the ceasefire deal draft. Leaders from the two sides will meet again at 10am tomorrow. We will finalise all the agreed points. Leaders will sign a preliminary agreement after seeing the meeting documents.”
A coalition of ethnic militias formed the NCCT in early November 2013. The NCCT initiated ceasefire talks with the UPWC on November 4 and 5 that same year. There have been seven official meetings and a series of informal talks to date.
NCCT leader Naing Han Thar said: “There were many blockages at the beginning of the talks. The NCCT and the UPWC have reached an agreement on the ceasefire deal draft thanks to our patience and mutual understanding. But we need to further discuss some points. The NCCT alone has no authority to ink the nationwide ceasefire pact. We need to hold discussions on the agreed points by inviting leaders from all groups. These points are to be reported to the leaders at the meeting. Then, the leaders are to make decision on the agreed points.”
The NCCT plans to hold an armed national races group summit in April to seek the approval of ethnic minority leaders. However, the NCCT has yet to secure a venue for the summit, according to the NCCT.
Speaker of the Union parliament Thura Shwe Mann sent a congratulatory message to the negotiating parties in honour of yesterday’s talks. cr.EMG


The United Nations today praised a draft ceasefire deal aimed at ending Myanmar’s decades of civil war, hailing the text agreed between the government and an array of ethnic armed groups as “historic and significant”. The UN, which has acted as an observer to months of peace negotiations, said the tentative deal was a “milestone” for Myanmar, after the country’s president signed the draft national ceasefire with armed rebel groups today. “For the government of Myanmar and 16 Ethnic Armed Groups to reach a ceasefire agreement after more than sixty years of conflict is a historic and significant achievement,” it said in a statement on behalf of UN Special Adviser Vijay Nambiar. A full agreement can only be signed after a conference of the ethnic armed groups for which no date has yet been set. Myanmar’s quasi-civilian regime has set nationwide peace as a key goal of its reforms ahead of crucial elections expected in November. http://yangon.sites.unicnetwork.org/2015/03/31/statement-on-behalf-of-special-adviser-vijay-nambiar-2/ photocr.  Nyo Ohn Myint 644434_10153236221118594_8558689720087835677_n10405427_10153236220798594_830665718284087125_n10675622_10153236221308594_1362311127573190692_n

MYANMAR BURMA : KNU : ‘car for peace’ permits as a pretext for signing preliminary ceasefire deals.

A top official from the Karen National Union (KNU) said yesterday that it was Myanmar president Thein Sein himself who gave ethnic armed groups envelopes containing car permits for peace, which critics have said has resulted in a huge loss of revenues for the country.

Pado Mann Nyein Maung, a KNU central executive committee member, disclosed the information to reporters at the Myanmar Peace Centre (MPC) in Yangon amid public criticism of the ‘car for peace’ permits as a pretext for signing preliminary ceasefire deals.

“I received those car permits. The president held a reception for us on February 13 (the day after Union Day). At his farmhouse, he gave an envelope to each of our ethnic armed organisations. I didn’t know what was inside and didn’t open it, either. When I arrived back, I gave it to my chairman. Later I came to know it contained car permits,” said Mann Nyein Maung.

As to the number of car permits given to the armed groups, President’s Office Minister Aung Min, who is leading peace talks, and MPC officials did not comment on the record. But the KNU official disclosed details of how many permits the ethnic armed groups, including his own, received.

Thus far, 14 armed groups had reportedly received car permits. They are the KNU, RCSS/SSA, SSPP/SSA, KNU/KNLA, DKBA, KNPP, CNF, NSCN-K, PNLO, NMSP, UWSA, NDAA, ALP and ABSDF.

According to Man Nyein Maung, there are other armed groups to whom the government is expected to give car permits. There are 40 permits without tax and 80 with 60 percent of taxes for the KIO; 15 each without tax and 30 each with 60 percent taxes for the TNLA and LDU. Those groups, however, have not taken the permits as no progress has been made in their peace talks, he added.

According to sources sought by Daily Eleven, the Road Transport Administration Department (Ka-Nya-Na) left 3,000 permits reserved for ‘car permits for peace’. No official has confirmed how many car permits have already been issued nor what brands of cars have been imported with the permits.

Meanwhile, some people have bought luxurious cars such as Rolls Royce and Bentley using permits allegedly given by the president to the ethnic armed groups. This would mean either that the government has lost at least Ks 200 billion in tax money for 1,000 cars imported with the ‘car permits for peace’ deal or that the ethnic armed groups did not receive the value for which the cars were given. The deal was reportedly made to benefit car brokers and some car permit dealers.

A Rolls-Royce with an original price of about US$ 500,000 (Ks 492 million) would be valued at about Ks 1.3 billion, including more than Ks 850 million in taxes. If the car is bought with peace permits, there is no needed to pay the taxes.

The permit is valued at roughly between Ks 50 million and Ks 150 million each, and the ethnic armed groups can sell their permits for at most Ks 150 million.

Currently, about 30 Rolls-Royce cars can be found in Myanmar, and nearly 20 Bentleys have been imported. They have been imported from the Myawady and Tachilek borders. According to Ka-Nya-Na, in response to questions from Eleven Media, most of the luxury cars imported with peace-for-car-permits are Rolls Royce, Bentley, Lamborghini, Lexus and BMW.

National League for Democracy chairperson Aung San Suu Kyi said during an interview with RFA on December 5 that she didn’t like the way the government has been issuing car permits to ethnic armed groups.

“I don’t like their plan. I don’t understand what the meaning is or what their intention is. Car permits have nothing to do with establishing a peace process. If the government wants to help the ethnics, they can help them in other ways. The car permits plan has so many difficulties,” Suu Kyi said.


The import of Rolls Royce cars on the basis of “peace permits” has continued on the Myanmar-Thai border because cars covered with cloth are not easily noticed, locals say.

The luxury cars, which are worth about half a million US dollars (Ks 490.5 million), were previously imported without covers. However, the government has recently suffered criticism for allegedly trying to reach ceasefire deals by offering armed ethnic groups “peace permits,” which offer exemptions from paying tax on car imports.

Yesterday, two Rolls Royce cars and one Lexus car were imported under cover through Myawady Township, according to local sources. So far, about 20 Rolls Royce cars have been imported tax-free under the peace permits.

Peace process in Burma/Myanmar means granting vehicle import licenses? according to the document signed by ABSDF chairman Ko Than Khel. ABSDF got 60 vehicle import licenses. Previous reports suggested Karen National Union got at least 120 vehicle import licenses.







MYANMAR BURMA : Nationalities Brotherhood Federation (NBF) to submit draft constitution to parliament

Nationalities Brotherhood Federation (NBF) has finished writing a draft constitution and will submit it to the Parliament’s constitutional review committee at the upcoming ninth Parliamentary session, says the NBF director.

EMG The draft constitution will also be submitted during next meetings and a Panglong-like conference that the government has promise to hold before 2015.

NBF Director Chin Chin said the draft is rooted in fundamental points such as ethnic affairs, national cause, autonomy and the establishment of a federal union.

“All are included such as executive, political, education and economic sectors and the rights of ethnic groups,” she said.

She added that the draft constitution was also based on seven states and seven regions as stated under the current system. The designation of only a “Bamar” state is not appropriate as the regions have ethnic minorities, she commented.

According to NBF’s spokesperson Zo Zan, its constitution is just a renewal of the 2008 Constitution, not a rewritten one.  He said the NBF would keep its draft constitution as a manual.

The NBF is formed with 15 ethnic parties.

United Nationalities Alliance and United Nationalities Federation Council are also working together to write another draft constitution and it is expected to be completed  before the end of this year.

MYANMAR BURMA: UNFC-Ceasefire breakthrough still possible in Hpa-an

EMG – A national ceasefire agreement is still far from being concluded due to the government’s draft accord containing unacceptable provisions for ethnic armed groups.

Naing Han Tha, the secretary of United Nationalities Federation Council (UNFC), said there were still different views between the government and armed groups over a nationwide ceasefire accord.

“We will meet again in Hpa-an. How can they (government) compromise? How can we compromise? We can guess the solution could be sought during the Hpa-an meeting. We cannot tell now,” said Naing Han Tha.

Naing Han Tha, who also leads the National Ceasefire Coordination Team (NCCT), hinted that progress could be achieved through a series of meetings and by maintaining the already-discussed peace processes.

He added that during a meeting with the NCCT held earlier this month in Myitkyina, Kachin State, the government shared its draft ceasefire accord with armed groups. However, it was difficult to move forward as the draft contained provisions which went beyond the points discussed in the regional and union-level peace talks.

He insisted that coordination would continue.

The Hpa-an meeting is scheduled to take place in mid-December between the Union Peacemaking Work Committee and NCCT which was formed with the ethnic armed groups after the Laiza conference in Kachin State.

The meeting will follow the second conference of the ethnic armed groups due to take place in early December in area under the Karen National Union (KNU).

NCCT members are preparing to submit their own draft ceasefire draft plan containing the position of ethnic armed groups after discussing the 11-point common agreement reached after a meeting of the UNFC held recently in Chiang Mai, Thailand.

PSLF Cancels November Ceasefire Talks with Gov’t



According to Lt-Col Tar Bone Kyaw, the general secretary of Palaung State Liberation Front (PSLF), the November meeting between PSLF and government officials to discuss a bilateral ceasefire will be terminated due to continuing government attacks against the ethnic armed group’s forces in the Ta’ang area.

 “The government attacked our troops with heavy-fire three times in Kukai Township, twice in Namhsan Township, and once in Nanksan Township,” said Lt-Col Tar Bone Kyaw.

According to U Nyo Ohn Myint from the government’s peacemaking committee the Myanmar Peace Centre (MPC), both sides may still meet in November. “We are still negotiating a new meeting date, however the PSLF has yet to respond to our latest request,” he added.

U Nyo Ohn Myint claimed that from November 4 to 5, the government’s Union Peace-making Working Committee (UPWC) and ethnic armed groups including the PSLF met in Myitkyina of Kachin State, where both sides agreed to sign a state level ceasefire.

However, Lt-Col Tar Bone Kyaw denied U Nyo Ohn Myint’s statement, saying the meeting in Myitkyina was a simple exchange that did not result in an agreement by the PSLF to sign a ceasefire.

According to Lt-Col Tar Bone Kyaw, unofficial ceasefire talks have taken place in Chiang Mai, Muse Township in Shan State, and Shwe Lin in China since November 2012.

Since October 2012, twelve battles have broken out between government forces and the PSLF’s military branch the Ta’ang National Liberation Army (TNLA)
