MANDALAY DIVISION – Locals reported that the terrorist junta council forcibly evicted over 1,000 households in Myothit Ward No. 4 of Chanmyathazi Township, accusing them of squatting on privately owned land.
The residents were said to be ordered to be removed by the junta forces and junta informants reportedly delivered notices of eviction on July 17.
The notice didn’t mention any deadlines for the 1,000 households, only ordering them to remove themselves as fast as possible.
“They are ordering to destroy over 1,000 households. The residents have stayed there for over 15 years. No deadline was mentioned. They (junta forces) come in and destroy the houses whenever they want to. The residents meanwhile has decided to continue staying as they currently don’t have another place to stay and because the rent is sky high,” said a local.
