Launglon, 10 August
Ten civilians from Panyit village in Launglon Township, Tanintharyi Region, are missing for six days after being arrested as they went to Dawei for medical treatment, locals told Than Lwin Times.
On August 4, the regime forces detained them, including U Myint and his family members.
Among those arrested were also U Myint’s wife Daw Po Than, son-in-law Ko Kyaw San, daughter-in-law Ma Than Than Aye, niece Ma Htay Htay, U Aung Pe Than and his wife Daw Mu Aye, their daughter Mara, and driver U Yin Gyi and Ma Aye Aye Sint.
According to a local, none of them returned to the village until August 9, and all disappeared.
They might have been arrested by the junta army for allegedly supporting the People’s Defense Forces (PDFs).
Last month, the regime forces stormed Panyit village and burned down the houses, including U Myint’s.
Local research groups have reported that more than 100 civilians were arrested in Tanintharyi in July alone for various reasons.
