Police Officials Substitute for Intelligence Post

 

Maungdaw, Nov 16: According to official sources, on November 5, three police officers were substituted in the intelligence position near the border areas of Maungdaw township, a Burmese town on the western border with Bangladesh.

 

The three police officers are: sub-inspector U Thein Kyaw, who was substituted for in charge of intelligence unit at Taung Bro camp under the Nasaka area No (3); sub-inspector U San Shwe Maung, who was substituted for in charge of intelligent unit at Ngakura camp under the Nasaka area No (5); and sub-inspector Ko Ko Lay, who was substituted for in charge of intelligence unit at Krean Chaung camp under the Nasaka area No (4). All areas are in Maungdaw township of Burma's Arakan state.

 

The army officer lieutenant colonel Thu Rin Naing from the light infantry battalion (263) handed over the vacant intelligence post to police officers after having occupied all intelligence outposts himself for 10 days.

 

All intelligence offices and outposts were seized by local army battalions under western command following the seizure of power from the Prime Minister Khin Nyunt by the head of the Burmese Army, Senior General Than Shwe, on 19 October.

 

In the Arakan state all intelligence officials including two commanders in charge from battalion No (10) and No (18), were arrested and interrogated for their roles in corruption and misappropriation.

 

There are two intelligence battalions based in Arakan state: No (10) battalion in Akyab and No 18 battalion in Buthidaung. #
