Daw Thet Thet Htwe, the mother of the Dawei University Students’ Union vice-president Ma Thiri Moe, was sentenced by the junta regime to two years in prison on December 27th, according to Ma Thiri Moe.
The junta forces took Daw Thet Thet Htwe into custody and held her hostage as they were unable to arrest Ma Thiri Moe, and sentenced her to two years in prison under Section 505 (a) of the Penal Code.
The junta forces tried to arrest Ma Thiri Moe on the night of the 8th of November at her home in Kanineda Village, Dawei Township. When they couldn’t find her, they arrested her mother, Daw Thet Thet Htwe and her sister, Ma Shwe Yee Moe.
On November 11th, her sister was released, but her mother was taken to an interrogation center and charged under Section 505 (a).
The brave mother said that she was not in contact with her daughter, although the military council mentioned that she will be released if her daughter comes and gets arrested during her trial. She was sentenced to two years in prison with hard labour for allegedly having no contact with her daughter.
Ma Thiri Moe has been out of contact with her family for almost 11 months since she left home in February after the military coup.
Ma Thiri Moe, Vice-President of the Dawei University Students’ Union, has a warrant for her arrest by the junta regime under Section 505 (a) of the Penal Code.
