MANDALAY DIVISION – Residents said that the junta-appointed village heads from Ngashantaung Village, Kywe-ta-lin village and Yay-sone village in Kyaukpadaung Township are sending the young people in the villages to militia training after deceiving them.
Mr. Kwarter of the terrorist junta appointed administrator of Ngashantaung village sent 12 young men, Mr. Ye Sein, head of Kywe-ta-lin village and Mr. Bo from Yay-sone village each sending 5 young people to junta army militia training by lying.
“The chiefs who were appointed by the junta army lied about calling the youths and sending them to the militia. The village chiefs told them that there was nothing to worry about and handed them over to the army. The parents of the young people learned the truth on Saturday and are worried,” a local resident said.
The administrators asked the people in the villages to attend the militia training of the terrorist army, but no one is attending, hence they deceived the young people and sent them to training.
“The junta side is angry because no one applied to attend amidst calling. The junta army threatened the villages that they will not come like this again, hinting that they will be more violent. The young people who went to the training returned to the village,” the residents said.
