Mawlamyine, October (20)

Most of the valuable items from the houses that were sealed off by the coup council throughout the country are missing and not included in the submission as evidence to the court, the sources close to the matter told Than Lwin Times.

The military council is sealing the homes and confiscating the properties of those who are fighting against dictatorship and those who support them under the Anti-Terrorism Law.

A court official said that the members of the military council and their subordinates sealed the house and confiscated the property, and the gold, cash, and other valuables were not found when they were presented as evidence to the court.

According to police procedures, assets must be confiscated in the presence of witnesses, and according to Section 87 of the Criminal Procedure Law, assets must be confiscated only after a warrant is requested from the court, and the signature of the leader of the confiscation team and the owner’s signature must be present.

In addition, all movable and immovable assets of those who have been prosecuted under the Anti-Terrorism Act can be seized as national treasure, but evidence must be submitted to the court.

It is reported that the members of the military council and subordinate groups did not present gold, silver, cars, and other valuables when presenting evidence to the court, and only presented their phones and laptops, causing damage to the clients.

According to the October 13 statement by the Assistance Association for Political Prisoners (AAPP), there are at least 780 houses that have been sealed off across the country since the military coup.
