Subject: Ceasefire broke down and New Mon State Party split up two groups

Dear frinds

There are  good news and bad news I received from Thailand today.  The 
good news New Mon State Party at Mergui Division broke the ceasefire 
agreement with the SLORC when when the SLORC asked them to hand over 
their strong hole camp to the SLORC. This group was also broke out from 
the NMSP. Their declaration is as follow.

The bad news is the fighting between Mon Army of Mergui Division and 
Slorc's army had occured so many times. So, the Mon refugees at the 
Mergui Division will be increased.  The SLORC had  launched  offensive 
against the Mon Army at Mergui Division. We, Monland Restoration 
Council, are worry about the safety of Mon People at the Mergui 
Division. We ask the International Communities to monitor closely the 
situation of Mon Poeple at Mergui Division.
