December 19, 2023

The military junta has arrested nearly 70 residents in Thanbyuzayat Town, Mon State, after accusing them of supporting the People’s Defense Force.  They also seized at least five homes and businesses.

Among the detainees, U Mya Tha who was arrested with a pistol and some bullets and Ko Min Min who was subsequently arrested, both were killed in the military interrogation center of the Well Ka Lee Artillery Regiment. 

According to those familiar with the incident, the junta did not allow either person to meet with their family members.  It is believed they were not provided food and were tortured.

They were killed on December 9th but the junta has not informed their family members nor returned their bodies,” said a local source.

Another resident added, “They came to the houses of those who have opposed them every day and searched for the persons they wanted, but they had already run away

Another source told HURFOM that the junta plans to arrest another 100 residents in Thanbyuzayat Town.
