KAREN STATE – It has been reported that the junta council sealed off the house of the union minister of labour of National Unity Government (NUG), Mr. Nai Suwunna (aka) Mr. Nai Tun Pe, on June 13.
A local resident who lives in that neighbourhood mentioned that “that’s right, more than ten junta council personnels, including junta soldiers and polices, had come and sealed Sayar’s house (call Mr. Nai Suwunna with admiration). They went in the house by breaking the door and hanged the vinyl.”
The combination of the junta council troops had come and sealed off the house of Mr. Nai Suwunna on road no.2, in ward no.7, Htone Aing village, Hpa-An township, on the evening of June 13.
The local continued that “it’s been so long that no one has lived in that house. The junta council troops had come and sealed off like this before. But they sealed the house off with small papers. I’m not sure but I think it’s been two times that they sealed off Mr. Nai Suwunna’s house.”
The veteran politician, Mr. Nai Suwunna, was elected as the representative of Mon National Democratic Force, for Kyainseikgyi township constituency no.2 in the 1990 election. He was also elected as the representative of Mon National Party (MNP), for Hpa-An township constituency no.1 in the 2015 election. But he didn’t win.
All Mon Region Democracy Party and Mon National Party have merged into Mon Unity Party (MUP) before the 2020 general election. Mr. Nai Suwunna was a member of the central executive committee of MUP.
After the coup, he resigned from MUP as MUP had cooperated with the coup council.
After that, NUG appointed Mr. Nai Suwunna (aka) Nai Tun Pe as the minister of labour.
According to the human violation records collection team of National League for Democracy (NLD) around 625 people were sealed off their properties including houses from the coup to the end of May. Among them, 171 members of parliament and 333 members of NLD were included.
