Naypyidaw – According to information from Naypyidaw the parliament speaker Thura U Shwe Mann and Minister for Home Affair have meeting with Rohingya MP U Shwe Maung who has been targeted by President Thein Sein to be arrested for speaking the truth to the media.
“Today, parliament speaker Thura U Shwe Mann and Minister for Home Affair Lt. General Ko Ko met MP U Shwe Maung in Naypyidaw. I learned from my source in Naypyidaw police department that the interrogation by police will be done within Tuesday or Wednesday. Actually the meeting with the speaker and minister was planned to be held yesterday but it was postponed.” said a Rohingya activist Nay San Lwin.
“Whatever told by U Shwe Maung to DVB wasn’t an accusation. He is representing the people. It is his duty to listen the people's voices. It is his right to convey what the people reported to him. The government has to rebut if they are right. It is not good for MPs in Myanmar if the government sues him for speaking truth.” he added.
A 55-year-old Rohingya woman, Laila informed the authority about the blaze set up by police in Duchiradan west hamlet. She was killed the next day and up to now the dead body hasn’t been returned to her family. There are more eyewitnesses who said they saw the police starting the fire.
Although the European country's diplomats went there for an investigation, up to now no news has been released. Even the people in the village reported to them all about the mass killing. The National Human Rights Commission of Myanmar had a meeting with the people and they were also informed. All but the delegate head Sit Myaing lied as if he hadn't been reported the killing, although the people gave him a death list of 52.
The truth of the mass killing and arson attack in Duchiradan can only be transparent if the international investigation team is allowed to get in. Myanmar government will keep denying it and they will harm whoever speaks the truth.
“The government dares to shot monks. Rohingyas are the most oppressed ethnic group in the world. Shooting Rohingyas and setting fire on Rohingyas’ homes by police is just a small matter for them. President Thein Sein has been targeting MP U Shwe Maung since 2012 for speaking truth to media. It won’t be good for the reputation of the USDP party if parliament speaker U Shwe Mann allows issuing the arrest warrant. So far the arrest warrant hasn’t been issued yet according to Naypyidaw source but for sure the interrogation ongoing. It is unclear whether the parliament speaker signed to issue arrest warrant or not.”
