Real vs. Fake News

Mingalabar! Welcome to Than Lwin Times’ Real vs. Fake News program.

This program verifies fake news and misinformation about revolution events spread on

social media after the military takeover.

Today, we will be checking the content of the photo titled “The last warning of the Dark Shadow (YGN UG) group”.

This content has been disseminated via the fake page of Dark Shadow since April 11.

Military lobbyists have been spreading rumors online with photos saying, “As directed by the NUG, in order to protect the lives and property of the people, we would like to warn people not to go within one mile of the Thingyan pavilions, and the people living in that area should move quickly starting April 11”.

The Than Lwin Times looked into the post and found it to be misinformation.

The real Dark Shadow (Ygn-UG) group only releases news through the Telegram channel, and the Dark Shadow Facebook page is just a fake.

“The news published by this fake Facebook page, Dark Shadow, is false news, and we are not affiliated with any organization, including NUG. The military lobbyists are creating misunderstandings between the people, the NUG, and our group,” the Dark Shadow (Ygn-UG) group said via its Telegram channel.
