Launglon, 29 October
Military regime arrested two locals, including a member of the National League for Democracy (NLD) from Min Yat village in Tanintharyi Region’s Launglon Township, said locals.
The arrest came after the 50-strong junta army entered Min Yat village on 26 October.
When the regime troops arrived in the village, they arrested 16-year-old Maung Sai Kyaw Thiha on the grounds that they found political content on his phone.
Following that, they arrested U Aung Kyaw Soe, an NLD party member, at his home, beat him, and took him away.
In addition, the military council temporarily detained four other local women and released them before leaving the village.
U Aung Kyaw Soe was the driver of U Myint San, Minister of Agriculture and Irrigation of Tanintharyi Region under the NLD government.
Minister U Myint San died of cancer in May of this year while going into hiding in Thailand, according to the NLD.
Nearly 1,800 NLD members were arrested during the coup, of which 97 were killed, according to a statement issued by the NLD on September 27.
