TANINTHARYI DIVISION – An official of Falcon PDF (People’s Defence Force) said that the force confiscated Dagon Beer bottles, junta products, when inspecting the vehicles on the Dawei-Myeik Highway in Thayetchaung Township.
Ten packages of Dagon Beer bottles and one bottle of Army Rum, another junta product, were reportedly confiscated from a truck heading to Myeik from Dawei last Wednesday (August 9) around 3 p.m.
“The army rum was reportedly to bribe the junta forces on the road. We destroyed the confiscated items right where we seized them,” said the official of Falcon PDF.
The truck carrying the junta products was said to have been fined 450,000 MMK and warned not to transport those products in the future then released.
Also on Wednesday evening, junta related documents were seized from a passenger bus heading to Dawei from Myeik, and were destroyed.
Recently on August 4, Falcon PDF had seized a large number of narcotics and alcohol at Aukthayetchaung intersection on the Dawei-Myeik Highway.
General Strike Coordination Body (GSCB) is aiming to drop the sale of junta produced alcoholic beverages and cigarettes to 70% of the current sales in the next two months and has urges the public to decidedly boycott those products.
