Mawlamyine, September (30)
Tens of thousands of kyats have been spent from public funds for the installation of CCTV cameras in Mawlamyine, Mon State, but there is no benefit to the people, the residents said.
After the military coup, CCTV cameras were installed all over the city to track public movements, theft and looting.
However, looting, burglaries, and thefts of motorcycles happens every day in the majority of the city’s neighborhoods during the military takeover, but the military council will rarely take any action.
A Mawlamyine resident said that the CCTV cameras were installed using public funds, but they are not able to detect the theft of public property, so there is no benefit to the people.
He said that because the military council is using the installed CCTV cameras as a priority only for their security, the people have to monitor their property themselves.
People identification cameras, cameras that can read license plates, and 360-degree rotating cameras are among the CCTV cameras installed in Mawlamyine and they can work 24 hours a day from the control center even if there is a power outage.
Residents say that CCTV cameras have been installed all over the city, and the regime police can find out the entry and exit routes of thieves and robbers, but the fact that no one has been arrested so far is questionable.
Over 80,000 Lakhs have been spent for the CCTV camera installation project in the last two fiscal years, and the tender for the project was won by Naung Yoe Company and FISCA, which are close to the military group.
