Myeik, 23 November
A sergeant from the Thilawa navy base in Yangon Region’s Thanlyin joined the Civil Disobedient Movement (CDM) and took refuge in the people’s embrace, reported the Myeik District Battalion 1 on 22 November.
On November 20, sergeant Augn Kyaw Myo from Thilawa naval base sought refuge in Palaw PDF (1st Battalion, Myeik District).
He deserted the army because of the military’s violence against civilians since the coup and abuse by seniors, said the spokesperson of the Myeik District Battalion 1.
The revolutionary group said that Sergeant Aung Kyaw Myo, who surrendered without any military equipment, will be kept in a safe place and that he will be taken care of in accordance with the CDM policy by the National Unity Consultative Council (NUCC).
The revolutionary groups have urged the military council’s army, navy, and air force, as well as the police, to sympathize with the people and get out of the hands of a group of dictators as soon as possible.
CDM Sergeant Aung Kyaw Myo, a resident of Palaw Township, has been in the military for 14 years.
The National Unity Government (NUG) announced early this year that more than 14,000 regime troops and police forces had joined the Civil Disobedient Movement (CDM) during the military coup.
