He got shot after NCPO issued new order under article 44 :
NCPO issue another order to protect the interests of the public. The NCPO explained that the new order is necessary because the enforcement of existing laws have been inefficient. As a result, there have been violations of the laws such as encroachments of public land, national forest reserves and national parks as well as illegal use of public utilities to obstruct traffic, causing the people to have problems in leading their daily life.
The new order has, therefore, been issued to increase the efficiency of law enforcement by authorities.
Under the order, a cabinet minister, as a law enforcer, can seek help from the military to protect the interests of the people in general by submitting a request for the defence minister to consider providing military personnel to assist them with law enforcement.
FOR NOT INFORMED READERS !! Colonel Romklao Thuvatham, was shot by Red Shirt sniper on April 2010. Soldiers, who were ordered to stand down, had no live ammunitions, were trying to take him to nearby hospital but the armed Red Shirts, Thaksin’s followers, insisted him to beg for his life, by saluting at their feet. Though he was seriously wounded, Col. Romklao refused to beg for his life and salute the terrorists.So several Red Shirts kicked him again and again till he was dead on Rajadamnern Avenue, at the Democracy Monument.These murderers were never captured.
Over a thousand people from the Letpadungtaung area gathered to attend the funeral of Khin Win, who was killed this week in clashes between residents and police. The attendants called for the destruction of the Letpadaungtaung mine at the funeral, sources say.
The funeral was held on December 25 at Moekyo Pyin village, Khin Win’s native village, where locals commemorated her by carving her name on her grave.
Locals said they admired her as a heroine.
After the funeral service, attendants protested at the place where Khin Win was killed, shouting slogans such as “Stop the copper mine project that killed Khin Win”, “Abolish the copper mine project that didn’t follow the report of the investigation commission” and “Return the farmland seized for the project.”
Khin Win was killed and many others were injured when police and local farmers clashed after the Myanmar Wanbao Mining Copper Co Ltd (MWMCL) tried to erect a fence around the project area on December 22. The following day, the company continued its efforts, and four more locals sustained bullet wounds.
On December 25, MWMCL suspended its attempts to fence off the site of the controversial Letpadaungtaung project. CR. ELEVEN MEDIA

How to continue to get community participation
Really Really ….Really sad for that.Where is negotiation process? I don’t have to consider why government authority can’t consult with local villagers. Does a villager need to die for natural resource extraction? She died while saving her land.
(I would like to say about it as a member of EITI Yangon Region.)

Two paramilitary rangers were shot dead in Narathiwat on Sunday while many other rangers were wounded in bombing and shooting attacks in Pattani and Narathiwat provinces this morning.
The fatalities resulted from a gun ambush against a paramilitary ranger vehicle in Narathiwat’s Si Sakhon district yesterday.
In addition to the two ranger fatalities, five others were wounded.
Security authorities hunted for suspects in five Kalong sub-district villages. More than 100 spent shells were found at the ambush site and authorities estimated that at least six gunmen were involved in the attack.
In a separate incident, a roadside bomb was detonated while six paramilitary rangers were on foot patrol to provide safety for teachers and students on Road Number 42 (Narathiwat-Pattani) in Pattani’s Yaring district.
The blast wounded two rangers. The attackers followed up the bombing with gunfire at the rangers and then fled.
In Bacho district of Narathiwat, security personnel exchanged gunfire with suspected insurgents, who later retreated toward a local village. The authorities seized their weapons and hunted for them. (MCOT)
