I do not intend to participate in this debate but I would like to make
one thing clear. That is ?Okkar is not Lt-Col Hla Min?. If someone believes
that Okkar is Lt-Col
Hla Min, all the truths I have posted to SCB and to the news groups about
myself will become untruths. For example... I said that I am a Skaw Karen and
I am a Christian (Roman Catholic). I don?t think that Col. Hla Min is a Karen
or he is a Christian. I said that I was borned in Irrewaddy Division but I
don?t know where Col. Hla Min was borned.
All the personal replies to SCB and to the news groups or to the
individuals sent from OKKAR66127?s account were made by me unless the sender
name was mentioned such as (by ---??? ). They were not made by Col. Hla Min
or any other one else.
I hope that Mr. Bertil Litner will see the truth, by now.
