Myanmar opposition Party Hluttaw Re (r)
Subject: Re: Myanmar opposition Party Hluttaw Representatives strongly
Dear (Colonel) Win Naing
Have you read the statements issued by CRPP and political prisoners's group
on that issue?
And have you heard of our response to DVB and RFA?
Moreover have you got the message how those three guys cooperated with MI
and deceived other MPs-in-the-guess-houses?
Do you know many deceived MPs have turned back?
If not you will be of one-sided. Please use both ears.
