Mawlamyine, October (11)

The Mon Peace and Defense Force, which split from the New Mon State Party (NMSP), declared on October 10 that it would join junta forces and work as a local militia.

The statement said that the group has been transformed into a militia in order to build peace in Mon State and prevent it from the dangers of terrorism.

Furthermore, the militia group slammed any act of terrorism and stated that they will work for peace and stability in the people’s daily lives.

Then Colonel Nai Chan Lawi, spokesperson for the Mon Peace and Defense Force, told Than Lwin Times that they had to take up arms again as a militia because local residents, administrators, and staff were being killed in the state.

Brigadier General Naing Aung Tun took over the responsibilities of General Naing Shoung, the commander of the Mon Peace and Defense Force, which was transformed into a militia.

An official of the Southern Mon People’s Defense Force, which is fighting against the dictatorship, said that since the Mon Peace and Defense Force has become a stooge of the military council, they will treat and attack this militia group as an enemy.

The Mon Peace and Defense Force split from the New Mon State Party, and its 268 members surrendered to the Southeast Regional Military Command along with 72 arms on October 10, 2010.

The Mon Peace and Defense Force declared that it would serve as a militia under the Military Council militia on October 10, the 12th anniversary of the surrender.
