URGENT READ!!! UNFC is at a loss to understand why EBO wants everyone to respect and protect the2008 Constitution,


The UNFC is at a loss to understand why EBO wants everyone to respect and protect the2008 Constitution, which was fraudulently drafted and adopted by the previous military dictatorship.It is designed to perpetuate the military, or rather the racists’ hold on power. Some constitutionalexperts view Burma’s problem as a constitutional crisis and rightly so. All three Constitutions of thecountry favor racists and chauvinists to monopolize political power, resulting in political, social andeconomic instability and the civil war, since the time of independence in 1948

Burma Ethnic Politics Watch Network (BEPWN)

In building a genuine democratic system in Burma, some politicians among thoserepresenting ethnic political parties or organizations are found to be self-sacrificing whilesome are seeking self-interests. In order to let pro-democracy activists and people both insideand abroad aware of their deeds and stands, we are now naming them and publishing their  political standpoint.
The self-seeking politicians are as follows:
1. Harn Yawnghwe (Shan) member of Board of Directors of Euro-Burma
One of the executive directors of Brussels-based Euro-Burma in Belgium, Harn Yawnghwehas long been out of touch with Burma’s politics. Since he is neither knowledgeable of Burma’s domestic politics nor familiar with military dictators’ nature and is in need of moneyfor his survival, he has been asking for funds from EU member states on various pretexts andis getting assistance from those states which have faith upon the Euro-Burma Board of Directors, one of his close associates informed us together with photo and documentevidences. Some political parties which have applied for registration disclosed that he hasembezzled funds donated for humanitarian assistance by providing party registration fees atthe Elections Commission office for those ethnic groups which favor running for 2010elections and is also going to help pay election candidate fees of Kyat 500,000.We are worried for Harn Yawnghwe’s action leading to differences and misunderstanding between domestic pro-democracy forces and EU member states. Besides, rifts could alsocome up among internal ethnic groups. Hence on account of being an accomplice to perpetuation of SPDC military tyranny and helping with SPDC acquiring internationallegitimacy, the BEPWN strongly denounces Harn Yawnghwe and put him on the Black List
The WGEC was formed in February 2012, and its administrative operations are supported by the Brussels-based Euro-Burma Office (EBO). Many of its members are also active in the United Nationalities Council Federation (UNFC) and the Ethnic Nationalities Council (ENC).

Riposte to Article in EBO Briefing Paper No. 8, dated August 2013
(August 15, 2013)
Virulently attacking the UNFC organized Ethnic Nationality Conference, which was held to enhance the National Reconciliation and Peace Building process of the non-Burman ethnicresistance forces and the political opposition, the Euro-Burma Office (EBO) reared its ugly headagain. With a sprinkling of twisted facts, half-truths and perverted logic, worthy of Nazi propaganda,in an article titled “Analysis of the UNFC Position” it slanders the UNFC and accuses the UNFC oftrying to represent all the ethnic nationality forces, playing a dangerous game and …

Rebel leaders: Few will show up for the nationwide ceasefire agreement

panglong org 5.july 2013

Resistance leaders that attended a meeting yesterday to discuss the latest developments in the ongoing process say if the text of the nationwide ceasefire agreement covers no more than the original 5 point guideline laid down by the President on 1 March 2012, few movements will show up at the actual signing ceremony.

“Most likely, no one’s going to show up,” said a prominent leader who requested his identity be withheld.

According to the 5-point guideline, both sides would agree:

  • To stop all hostilities
  • To stay only in the agreed areas
  • Not to hold any arms in places except from those agreed areas
  • To open liaison offices in the mutually agreed places
  • To fix the venue, time and date for Union level dialogue

U Aung Min, Vice Chairman of the Union Peacemaking Work Committee (UPWC), when asked by Lt-Gen Yawd Serk, leader of the Restoration Council of Shan State/Shan State Army (RCSS/SSA), on 15 June how the second signing would be different from the first, replied: “The difference is that at the second signing, it will be witnessed by dignitaries all over the world. All those concerned will sign it. Afterward, nobody will be able to renege on it and reverse the process even if he wants to.”


So far, 13 resistance movements have signed ceasefire with Naypyitaw. Those remaining to sign it include the Kachin Independence Organization/Kachin Independence Army (KIO/KIA).

“We need to have a comprehensive peace agreement which not only includes ceasefire, but also a framework for political negotiations,” he said, speaking on the sideline of the meeting.

The Working Group for Ethnic Coordination (WGEC), formed by representatives of the ethnic armed movements and civil society organizations in 2012, has already drafted a comprehensive agreement, which also contains:

  • Common principles
  • Framework for political dialogue
  • Transitional arrangement
  • Scope of participation
  • A 19-point dialogue issues
  • Military Code of Conduct

Speaking to the parliament on Friday, 28 June, U Aung Min said, “The government has a plan to hand over the task of organizing political dialogue to Parliament,” after the signing of the nationwide ceasefire, according to Eleven Media.

Following Aung Min’s address, Shwe Mann, Lower House Speaker, has called for direct involvement of the Parliament in the peace process on Tuesday, 2 July.
