Title: Maw Chee Mining Report (Karenni State)
Date of publication: 26 February 2016
Description/subject: A Free Burma Rangers (FBR) team travelled to the town of Maw Chee [Mawchi] to get information about the Burma Army and mining activities in that area. Mining operations in Maw Chee began at the time of the British occupation of Burma. Over the years it has increased with both Burmese and Chinese companies coming into this area to mine ore. Primarily the mines in the Maw Chee area extract tin...When looking at Maw Chee one can see scars all over the hill sides from where the mining operations have dumped debris and caused landslides. In October 2015, a large landslide killed 24 people when part of the mountain over Maw Chee came loose and destroyed 38 houses. This landslide was not directly linked to any one mine, but was caused by heavy rains and roadways built along the hillside. Myint Aung Hlaing came by helicopter, and the Burma Army – along with many other organizations – came to provide relief for the victims of the landslide..."

In response to the question, the Deputy Minister for Immigration and Population replied that the ministry has no plans to amend the law and bylaw since the issue came from the internal migration of people. While currently issuing citizenship cards to migrants and squatters, the ministry is facing difficulties in getting correct and complete information and documents from migrants and squatters as they are moving from one place to another frequently. Regarding the question of MP T Khun Myat from Kalewa Constituency on fighting against narcotic drugs, Deputy Minister for Home Affairs Brig-Gen Kyaw Kyaw Tun said the government adopted a 15-year plan from 1999 to 2014 for the elimination of drugs and adopted a five year plan from 2014-2015 to 2018- 2019 for the elimination of the production and use of drug, stepping up its efforts in the fight."...Amyotha Hluttaw: Amyotha Hluttaw passes two bills, approves three reports: "THE Amyotha Hluttaw yesterday passed two bills and approved three progress reports submitted by committees.

Title: The Myanmar Elections: Results and Implications (English)
Date of publication: 09 December 2015
Description/subject: Overview: "The 8 November elections were a major waypoint in Myanmar’s transition from authoritarian rule. Holding a peaceful, orderly vote in a context of little experience of electoral democracy, deep political fissures and ongoing armed conflict in several areas was a major achievement for all political actors, the election commission and the country as a whole. The victorious National League for Democracy (NLD) needs to use the four-month transitional period before it takes power at the end of March 2016 wisely, identifying key appointees early so that they have as much time as possible to prepare for the substantial challenges ahead. Its landslide victory, with almost 80 per cent of the elected seats, means Nobel Peace Prize laureate Aung San Suu Kyi’s party will have an outright majority in both legislative chambers, even after the 25 per cent of unelected seats held by the armed forces is taken into account. This will give it control of law-making and the power to choose the president – a position that the constitution bars Suu Kyi from taking herself. The incumbent Union Solidarity and Development Party (USDP) suffered a crushing defeat, as did most parties representing minority ethnic groups. The vote represents a huge popular mandate for Aung San Suu Kyi and comes with equally high expectations that she and the NLD will deliver the needed political and economic changes. It will not be easy to meet those expectations. First, Suu Kyi will have to build a constructive working relationship with Commander-in-Chief Min Aung Hlaing. The military retains considerable executive power, with control of the defence, home affairs and border affairs ministries. Success in everything from the peace process to police reform and further political liberalisation will depend on the cooperation of the armed forces. With longstanding mutual suspicions, that relationship could easily get off to a bad start, particularly if Suu Kyi chooses a proxy president without the credibility and stature required for the top job, as she has suggested she would. Beyond this, the NLD will want to demonstrate that it can meet the expectations of the people by bringing tangible changes to their lives. It can tap into enormous domestic and international goodwill and support, but its limited experience of government, a shallow pool of skilled technocrats and the difficulty of reforming key institutions all constrain how much can be achieved quickly. This is particularly important given that the party has done very little policy development work to date. It also may prove difficult for the new administration to focus on producing positive changes, given the range of problems the country faces, any of which have the potential to spawn crises. Serious armed clashes continue in Shan and Kachin states, threatening to undermine a fragile peace process. There are signs of macro-economic turbulence, with weak policy tools available to mitigate it. And the situation in Rakhine state, where most Muslim Rohingya were disenfranchised, is intractable and potentially volatile; any moves the NLD government makes on this issue will come under particular nationalist scrutiny. There will also be international relations challenges. Suu Kyi and the NLD will need deft diplomatic skills to steer Myanmar’s continuing re-engagement with the West, while maintaining good relations with a more assertive China concerned that its interests are being harmed. They will have to be particularly adroit, given perceptions that they have an inherent pro-Western bias. Western countries must do their part to help make this rebalancing succeed. They have an important role to play in supporting positive change in Myanmar but need to be cognizant of domestic and regional sensitivities involved."

Title: BURMA/MYANMAR POST-ELECTION OUTLOOK: TRIALS FOR TRIUMPH
Date of publication: 13 November 2015
Description/subject: "Results announced on 13 November confirmed the overwhelming victory of the National League for Democracy (NLD) in the 8 November elections, which decided 75% of seats in Burma/Myanmar’s National and Regional Parliaments. While the military will retain its allotted 25% of parliamentary seats, the NLD now holds an overall majority in the National Parliament, giving it the power to form Burma/Myanmar’s next government and select a President. As results are finalized, the next steps for both Aung San Suu Kyi’s NLD and the country’s ruling military will take shape, while a final session of the current Union Solidarity and Development Party (USDP) dominated National Parliament will convene on 16 November. While the NLD will now be able to form a government, Burma’s military will retain its grip on power in key areas. This briefer summarizes post-election issues, including; the presidential selection process; the military power preserved in the 2008 Constitution; Aung San Suu Kyi's call for "reconciliation talks" with President Thein Sein, Commander-in-Chief Sr Gen Min Aung Hlaing and Parliamentary Speaker Shwe Mann; and the final parliamentary session for sitting MPs.

Title: Burma's Tatmadaw: A force to be reckoned with
Date of publication: 22 October 2015
Description/subject: Includes a 2-hour 51 minute MRTV video of the 2015 Myanmar Armed Forces Day parade....."Since the accession of President Thein Sein in 2011, the Tatmadaw's continuing political role has been examined closely. Less attention has been given to strictly military issues, yet the Tatmadaw's combat capabilities not only underpin its domestic position but also help determine Burma's strategic influence. Despite its dominance of Burma's national affairs for decades, the Tatmadaw remains in many respects a closed book. Even the most basic data is beyond the reach of analysts and other observers. For example, the Tatmadaw's current size is a mystery, although most estimates range between 300,000 and 350,000. Official statistics put Burma's defence expenditure this year at 3.7 % of GDP, but the actual level is unknown . Given this uncertainty, all reports about the Tatmadaw need careful handling. It is clear, however, that since 2011 Commander-in Chief Min Aung Hlaing has implemented wide-ranging plans to make the Tatmadaw more professional and to improve its order of battle. The latter includes an ambitious arms acquisition program that some have compared with the dramatic expansion and modernisation of Burma's armed forces during the 1990s..."

Representatives discussed a Yen 99.850 billion loan for the Ministry of Rail Transportation and the Ministry of Electric Power from JICA during the Pyidaungsu Hluttaw Session on Friday. Some representatives supported the loan in principle but maintained it is important to spend the funds in the most beneficial way. One representative suggested that ministries provide updates to parliament every six months on the work being carried out using foreign loans. Another representative pointed out that despite the benefits the loan may offer, Myanmar’s current economic slowdown means that the debt will also be a burden. The representative urged ministries to hold themselves accountable for the spending of the funds. Members ultimately approved the plan to accept a loan from JICA, as well as the monogamy law and the signing of the Maritime Labour Convention 2006. Later, Deputy Minister for Social Welfare, Relief and Resettlement Daw Su Su Hlaing explained ongoing disaster management efforts in flood affected areas. She said that disaster relief efforts could be considered a success overall despite some weaknesses in management.

Title: The mean streets of Hlaing Tharyar
Date of publication: 28 August 2015
Description/subject: "...While all-out street brawls might not be an everyday occurrence in Hlaing Tharyar, the township is awash with crime – everything from fistfights, robberies, rapes and extortion to assaults and home detentions by lenders against debtors. A senior police officer from the Hlaing Tharyar Myoma Police Station said some of these cases are brought to the attention of police, but many others are “solved” by calling in local toughs who rely on intimidation. Among the obstacles to maintaining rule of law in the township are the huge growth in population, and an insufficient police force. Last year’s census identified 684,700 residents, about half of whom are squatting illegally on land they do not own or rent. Many of these squatters are thought to have migrated to the area in the wake of Cyclone Nargis in May 2008..."

Title: A Religious Study on the Construction of Oo-­Pwar Pagoda and Its Sculptures
Date of publication: 26 July 2015
Description/subject: Abstract: "This paper is written with the purpose of knowing why Buddhist people worship pagoda and Buddhism is not symbolism. Myanmar culture is an integral part of Buddhism. While there is an abundance of artistic material throughout Myanmar, many people do not know that these artistic pagodas and their sculptures are related with the meaningful background. Therefore, this paper is presented based on Oo-­‐Pwar pagoda in Mandalay. Initially, it is presented which one is worthy to be a pagoda and how many kinds of pagoda are there. And then, the history of Oo-­‐Pwar pagoda and the standard of Myanmar art and architecture of that period are presented. And the construction of pagoda and its sculptures are also expressed. In which, each part of pagoda related with the teaching of Buddha is discussed. This topic is divided into three main parts, namely: meaning of pagoda, the construction of Oo-­‐Pwar pagoda and sculptures in the surrounding of the pagoda. This paper shows the background history, religious and traditional customs of the sculptures. And the fact can be seen that although Myanmar people are Theravāda Buddhists, they also do some of the practice of Mahāyana Buddhism and Hinduism as their own tradition. By doing this research, in the compound of pagoda, the tradition of ancient Myanmar are found evidently. The pagodas can be assumed as the religious things and the invaluable cultural heritages. Therefore, conservation of pagoda is beneficial to develop Buddhist religion and to conserve Myanmar cultural heritage.".....Paper delivered at the International Conference on Burma/Myanmar Studies: Burma/Myanmar in Transition: Connectivity, Changes and Challenges: University Academic Service Centre (UNISERV), Chiang Mai University, Thailand, 24-­26 July 2015.

Title: "Architectural Aspects Of Stupas During The Reign Of King Narapatisithu In Bagan, Myanmar"
Date of publication: 26 July 2015
Description/subject: Abstract: "The research paper is studied about architectural aspects of stupas that were built during the reign of King Narapatisithu along Bagan dynasties. The author would like to study these stupas depending on four factors such as (i) Reflection in the form (ii) Spatial compositions (iii) Structural aspects and (iv) Decorative aspects. The stupas are classified according to their development of Form such as Stupas with bulbous shape, Stupas with octagonal basement, Stupas with rectangular basement, Stupas with circular basement, Stupas with pentagonal basement and Sinhalese type Stupas. Most of the stupas with circular basement, bulbous shape, rectangular basement, pentagonal basement and octagonal basement in the Bagan period were apparently evolved from the hemispherical stupa like Sanchi and Amaravali of India. Among them, Dhammayazika Stupa is surpassing example of the Bagan stupas. It was more required in skill for management, estimating, drawing and construction. According to cosmic metaphor and symbol of the five Buddhas, the geometrically guided layout is the finest expression of the Bagan. There were altogether the stupas that built in Bagan and the Dhammayazika Stupa is the zenith of Myanmar Religious Architecture. The contribution of this study is the architectural and technological achievements of Myanmar Religious Architecture that reached its peak during the reign of King Narapatisithu (1174-1211 A.D). Myanmar had impressed on special features and their own style from the Indian style. They showed entirely the different appearance of the whole structures from the Indian monuments. They may be traced to the Indian origin by signifying the philosophy of the fine arts. This research paper is studied that the architectural typology of Bagan monuments a dopted to conform Myanmar style. Furthermore, the research paper is expressed those stupas during the reign of King Narapatisithu were the most outstanding and famous levels compared with other stupas along Bagan periods.".....Paper delivered at the International Conference on Burma/Myanmar Studies: Burma/Myanmar in Transition: Connectivity, Changes and Challenges: University Academic Service Centre (UNISERV), Chiang Mai University, Thailand, 24-­26 July 2015.

Description/subject: HLUTTAW SESSIONS:- Pyidaungsu Hluttaw: Pyidaungsu Hluttaw debates extension of retirement age: "Nay Pyi Taw, 9 July — The Pyidaungsu Hluttaw heard vigorous debate Thursday from MPs arguing for and against extending the retirement age for civil servants from the current 60 years. Fourteen representatives discussed two separate proposals on the issue — one seeking to keep the retirement age at 60 and the other pushing to raise it to 63. U Khin Maung Nyo of Loikaw constituency supported maintaining the status quo, while L t - C o l Hlaing Win, representative of defence services, spoke in favour of raising the age, arguing civil servants aged 60 and above with rich experience would contribute a lot to the country, provided they were healthy enough to continue working. U Htan Lain of Mintut constituency was against the proposed extension, saying it could become a barrier to promotion for subordinates. In a similar vein, U Sai Than Naing of Phapun constituency said extension of the retirement age would fuel the unemployment problem. U Kyaw Thu, Chairman of the Union Civil Services Board, said the issue had undeniable pros and cons, but hinted that the board would extend the retirement age if it was deemed to be in the interests of the country and civil workforce. The parliament approved three bills — the boiler bill, the election commission amendment bill and the dams bill — that came from the president with remarks. The parliament also put on record four bills concerning television and radio broadcasting, preservation and maintenance of ancient artefacts and buildings, and development of border areas and national races. Also put on record were issues related to reformation of village-tracts in Rakhine State, Shan State, Mandalay Region, Yangon Region and Ayeyawady Region.".....

Deputy Minister for Health Dr Daw Thein Thein Htay replied that region and state governments released orders and directives on prohibition of using plastic bags under the environmental conservation law. The Department of Health cooperates with Development Affairs Committee in reducing use of plastic bags for environmental conservation. The Amyotha Hluttaw decided to submit controversial points between two Hluttaws in the bill amending the National Education Law to the Pyidaungsu Hluttaw. U Min Oo of Bago Region Constituency No 7 discussed it needs to improve the 1954 Buddhist Women Special Marriage and Inheritance Act in conformity with the present time. If not, the new law should be drafted in line with the human rights of the constitution, Universal Declaration of Human Rights and international treaties signed by Myanmar. Daw Khin Waing Kyi of Yangon Region Constituency No 1 also discussed that it is necessary to draft a marriage law for Myanmar women to protect their rights."

Title: Myanmar: Land Tenure Issues and the Impact on Rural Development
Date of publication: May 2015
Description/subject: EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: "Myanmar’s agricultural sector has for long suffered due to multiplicity of laws and regulations, deficient and degraded infrastructure, poor policies and planning, a chronic lack of credit, and an absence of tenure security for cultivators. These woes negate Myanmar’s bountiful natural endowments and immense agricultural potential, pushing its rural populace towards dire poverty. This review hopes to contribute to the ongoing debate on land issues in Myanmar. It focuses on land tenure issues vis-à-vis rural development and farming communities since reforms in this sector could have a significant impact on farmer innovation and investment in agriculture and livelihood sustainability. Its premise is that land and property rights cannot be understood solely as an administrative or procedural issue, but should be considered part of broader historical, economic, social, and cultural dimensions. Discussions were conducted with various stakeholders; the government’s inter-ministerial committee mandated to develop the National Action Plan for Agriculture (NAPA) served as the national counterpart. Existing literature was also reviewed. Limitations of the review included: • maintaining inclusiveness without losing focus of critical aspects such as food security; • the lack of a detailed discussion on the administration and management of forest land which is outside its purview; and an evolving regulatory environment with work currently underway on the new draft of the National Land-Use Policy (NLUP) and Land-Use Certificates (LUCs) for farmlands (Phase One work)..."

Title: Guns, Cronies and Crops - How military, political and business cronies have conspired to grab land in Myanmar (Burmese မန္မာဘာသာ)
Date of publication: 26 March 2015
Description/subject: "As Myanmar’s junta prepared to step down from government, the military set about seizing public assets and natural resources to ensure its economic control in a new era of democratic rule. Guns, Cronies and Crops details the collusion at the heart of operations carried out by Myanmar’s armed forces in northeastern Shan State. Large swathes of land were taken from farming communities in the mid-2000s and handed to companies and political associates to develop rubber plantations. Our investigation reveals those involved, including Myanmar’s current Minister of Agriculture and Irrigation, U Myint Hlaing, the country’s ruling Union Solidarity and Development Party, and Sein Wut Hmon, a rubber company which collaborated with the former military junta to gain control of land. These revelations come as Myanmar’s government finalises the drafting of a national land policy, the country’s first. The report documents the toxic legacy of these land grabs on an already marginalised ethnic-minority population, for whom little has changed since the country’s much-lauded transition to civil democracy in 2011. Villagers told Global Witness that they had received no compensation and are struggling to earn a living and feed their families without land to grow food..."

Turning rubber into finished products is the first priority for the country to enter the international market, responded U Ohn Than, Deputy Minister for Agriculture and Irrigation, adding that his ministry is working in tandem with companies from Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore in a bid to build more factories to manufacture finished products as well as enabling growers to earn more. Myanma Agricultural Development Bank has not made any plan to disburse loans to rubber growers, according to the deputy minister. U Ye Htun of the Sibaw constituency asked the lower house the number of total miles of roads across the country, their total cost and the possibility of contracting private companies. Deputy Minister for Construction U Soe Tint responded that his ministry has constructed over 24,900 miles of roads nationwide and that their annual maintenance requires over K390 billion. So far 27 private companies owned by Myanmar nationals have been permitted to construct 3,490 miles of roads under the BOT (build, operate and transfer) system, with new private companies invited, the deputy minister said. MPs also discussed the marriage bill on Myanmar Buddhist women and the population control healthcare bill."...AMYOTHA HLUTTAW: Suspension bridge construction resumes in Kayin State: Amyotha Hluttaw: "Nay Pyi Taw, 19 March — The Amyotha Hluttaw on Thursday was urged to build a suspension bridge in the township of Thantaungyi, Kayin State, with Deputy Minister U Kyaw Kyaw Win responding that soil tests are under way ahead of its construction.

In reply to the query of U Bo Ni, an MP of Yamethin Township constituency, Deputy Minister U Aye Myint Maung for Environmental Conservation and Forestry said the country has adopted a 30-year plan from 2000-2001 to 2030-2031 fiscal years for forest conservation, with updating every decade and reviewing every five years and development of reserved forest to 30 percent of the country’s total area and 10 percent for natural habitats. He also explained afforestation and growing of firewood plants with the contribution of people. Regarding query of Dr Than Aung, an MP of Shwebo Township constituency, the Deputy Minister said the ministry has not planned to extend the period for farmers to settle agricultural loans, as the loans from EXIM Bank of China will have to be paid back in eight years. Thura U Aung Ko, an MP of Kanpetlet constituency, asked the plans on proper use of international grants and loans.

Defence Services Personnel representative Major Kyaw Nu Maw also said that libraries are knowledge banks for all people and annual fund will be needed to set up school libraries traditionally or digitally.

Date of publication: 29 January 2015
Description/subject: "Nay Pyi Taw, 28 Jan— At the eighth day session of Pyithu Hluttaw (Lower House) on Wednesday, U Khin Maung Shwe of Tamu Constituency raised questions on maternity leave for female workers under the civil service law and rules and whether there is a plan to manage permission for maternity leave of woman staff at Mintha Station Hospital in Myothit, Tamu District. Chairman of Union Civil Services Board U Kyaw Thu replied that any woman service personnel in service can enjoy maternity leave under rules 101 and 102 of civil service law. The woman staff at the station hospital needs to submit applications with documents referring to the civil service law to the ministry concerned for enjoying the maternity leave with full salary. Daw Khin San Hlaing of Pale Constituency asked whether Myanmar Police Force controls criminal activities in Yangon Region or not. Deputy Minister for Home Affairs Brig-Gen Kyaw Zan Myint replied that police are discharging duty of security and rule of law in Yangon Region through a 1:1228 police to people ratio as population of the region reaches over 7.3 million. Police in 44 townships of the region led by the commander of Yangon Region Police Force emphasize prevention of 10 major criminal cases under the law. Police prosecuted 146 murder cases of 155 and 32 robbery cases of 47 in 2011, 156 murders of 164 and 26 robbery cases of 30 in 2012, 121 murders of 130 and 25 robbery cases of 33 in 2013 and 172 murders of 186 and 35 robbery cases of 48 in 2014. Police also arrested all suspects in five cases of mob violence in 2013 and three in 2014. If all people abide by existing laws and cooperate in preventive measures of crime, police can ensure prevalence of law and order and control of criminal cases. U Thein Swe of An Constituency submitted a proposal calling for drawing a five-year plan to appoint one midwife at appropriate villages so as to narrow development gap between rural and urban areas in health care services. Deputy Minister for Health Dr Win Myint said that a total of 20 midwifery training schools and 46 nursing and midwifery training schools are turning out midwives. As of 2015-16 academic year, the ministry will open two midwifery schools and two nursing schools. That is why the ministry will assign one midwife for two-three villages in 2020 when over 23,600 midwives will be turned out across the nation. The Hluttaw approved the proposal."

Title: Return of the Myanmar Military?
Date of publication: 17 November 2014
Description/subject: "...In the initial phase of liberalization, the military tended to follow Mr. Thein Sein’s reform initiatives. The generals rarely defied the political agenda of the president, himself a career army bureaucrat, except to defend their economic and tactical interests. But according to several senior aides to Mr. Thein Sein, relations between the president and the commander in chief, Senior Gen. Min Aung Hlaing, are increasingly out of sync. Several sources close to both men told me that General Min Aung Hlaing’s tougher tactics of late were reminiscent of the style of Senior Gen. Than Shwe, Myanmar’s military leader from 1992 to 2011, suggesting that General Than Shwe may still be pulling the strings behind the scenes. Lately, the military leadership has called for expanding the role of the National Defense and Security Council, a military-dominated 11-member body that holds wide-ranging powers, including the right to take over from the civilian government in a state of emergency. During the parliamentary debates last week, military representatives argued that the N.D.S.C. should be able to dissolve Parliament if one-third of the seats become vacant..."

Title: The New Thailand-Myanmar Axis
Date of publication: 29 July 2014
Description/subject: "With China’s backing, post-coup Thailand and Myanmar– ASEAN’s quasi-democracies– are moving closer together...The Thai military staged a coup on May 22, claiming to restore peace and order after months of protests against the elected government of Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra.

But China is not Thailand’s only friend in its time of need. On July 4, Myanmar Supreme Commander Senior General Min Aung Hlaing paid a visit to Bangkok, making him the first leader from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) to meet the Thai junta after the coup. He held a cozy discussion with Prayuth, purportedly to strengthen ties between Thailand and Myanmar. Disturbingly, Min Aung Hlaing praised the Thai junta for “doing the right thing” in seizing power. He also compared his country’s experience during the political upheaval that took place in Yangon in 1988, when the tatmadaw, or Myanmar’s army, launched deadly crackdowns against pro-democracy activists..."

Title: Wardrums in Myanmar's Wa hills
Date of publication: 23 April 2014
Description/subject: "Senior General Min Aung Hlaing, commander-in-chief of Myanmar's armed forces, or Tatmadaw, is a man on the move. Since the beginning of the year he has traveled to Laos and Indonesia, attended large-scale war games in central Myanmar, reviewed the country's largest ever naval exercises in the Bay of Bengal, presided over the annual Army Day parade in the capital Naypyidaw and met with a string of foreign dignitaries. A recent less publicized engagement was arguably more significant for Myanmar's war and peace prospects. On April 6, Min Aung Hlaing flew north from Naypyidaw to the garrison town of Lashio in northeastern Shan State to hold talks with Bao You-ri, the younger brother of Bao You-xiang, the ailing leader of the United Wa State Army (UWSA). Based east of the Salween River in a self-governing "special region", the UWSA is Myanmar's largest insurgent group and is at present in an uneasy ceasefire with the government..."

Title: More protests over Yangon industrial zone
Date of publication: 24 November 2012
Description/subject: "More than 30 farmers from four villages in Hlaing Tharyar township protested outside the Department for Human Settlement and Housing Development (DHSHD) on Bogyoke Aung San Road this week. The farmers had been demonstrating for more than three weeks outside the office of Wah Wah Win Company, on the corner of Anawrahta and Sintohtan streets in downtown Yangon, before shifting their attention to the DHSHD office after getting no response. They are unhappy that the company has allegedly backtracked on a compensation promise made following protests in the middle of the year. “We demonstrated for 23 days [since Wednesday, October 31] in front of the [Wah Wah Win] office. We called on them to negotiate the complicated land issues in Hlaing Tharyar township but they took no notice so we moved to DHSHD in the hope that they could solve the problem. We decided to stay here until they solve the problem for us,” said Ko Kyi Shwin from Kyun Ka Lay village in Hlaing Tharyar township. The land in Kyun Ka Lay, Kyun Gyee, Kan Phyu and Atwin Padan was confiscated by DHSHD more than two decades ago without compensation..."
