In response to the letter signed by the above-mentioned MPs, CRPP issued
the following Notification on 28 April 1999.

CRPP Notification No 25 (4/99) 

1. On 23 April, 1999, The National League for Democracy (Central) received
a letter sent by U Tin Tun Maung. The said letter was dated 18 April with
suggestions for solving the present political impasse that the NLD and all
other political parties were facing.

2. Prior to receipt of this letter, the NLD had issued and published a
statement vehemently denouncing their members U Than Htoon (Dedaye), U Tin
Tun Maung (Mingaladon) and U Kyi Win (Mingaladon) because they had joined
with the Military Intelligence Services - a group that is completely
opposed to democracy and human rights - and was operating to split the NLD
by conspiring and resorting to every kind of evil and dishonest tactics and

3. Appended to the said letter (mentioned in paragraph 1 above) was a list
(3 pages) which was entitled " List of persons who support and confirm the
suggestions for the solving of NLD's political problems as set out in the

letter dated 18.4.99". There were some signatures of  People's Parliament
members. The heading was type-written but the date shown therein was hand

4. Our information is that U Than Htoon, U Tin Tun Maung and U Kyi Win were
instrumental in obtaining some of the signatures of the People's Parliament
representatives. Most of the People's Parliament members are incarcerated
imprisoned or bound down and have no freedom of movement. It is very
obvious that the above three individuals must have been directed and
assisted by the Military Intelligence personnel in the relevant area.

5. More significant (according to information received) is that the MIS
made special arrangements for U Than Tun and U Kyi Win to travel to the
towns of Prome, Myanaung, Bassein and Myaungmya to get the signatures of
the People's Representatives. When they got to Myanaung to get the
signatures of the NLD members of parliament, Security did not grant
permission at first. However, on production of visitation permits they saw
the members. This is evidence of the collusion between them and the MIS.

6. It has been revealed to the NLD head office by some of its
representatives whom they have been able to contact that the contents of
the letter have been changed. There are omissions and insertions of which
the signatories are not aware. This is a misdemeanor for which the culprits
should be prosecuted and accordingly, suitable measures will be taken by
the NLD.

7. The activities associated with the said letter are measures to obstruct
the convening of a People's Parliament in accordance with the wishes of the
people which is what the National League for Democracy is striving for.
Elected representatives of the People's Parliament contested the elections
implying that they would perform their duties for the country through a
People's Parliament. Therefore putting their signatures to such a letter
amounts to a breach of faith and loyalty to the people who elected them.
