BAGO DIVISION – Locals said junta-appointed administrator of Tegone village tract, Pyay Township, and his wife were shot dead at Taung Nawin Dam, Myaung Baung Street.
On May 8, around 8:00 a.m., Mr. Soe Than, the administrator of Tegone village tract and his wife Ms. Swe Swe Myint, were returning from shopping when the People’s Defence Force (PDF) shot them at the west of Myaung Baung Road.
Mr. Soe Than is appointed by junta council, and his wife relies on the soldiers and the police to threaten the public and force them to arrest. Hence, PDF Battalion (3602), company (1) eliminated them.
Although there are allegations that 2 people who were shot dead are major pillars of the military council and are bullying and threatening the public in various ways, it cannot be confirmed independently.
