Addressing misinformation: SAC information team provides clarity on military service law

Malicious media outlets are spreading misinformation, alleging that military vessels docked at Myinkaseik jetty are collecting over 40 young residents and forcing them into military service in Kangyidaunt Township, Ayeyawady Region.
Residents have refuted this misinformation, stating that only motor boats and ships anchor at Myinkaseik jetty daily to load food, including rice, for delivery to Pathein, Yangon, and other towns. According to a resident, Myinkaseik village, a trade centre with seven rice mills, is the source of this information.
Similarly, malicious media outlets are engaged in continuous propaganda, spreading misinformation that schoolteachers and students from Pathein University are being coerced into serving at military camps and that 35 youths from Ohnchaw, Seltaw, and Tamotesoe villages in Patheingyi Township, Mandalay Region, have been forcibly captured.
To allay public concern and fear caused by these malicious media outlets, the State Administration Council (SAC) Information Team is providing clarifications through State-owned media about the military service law. SAC has also announced hotline numbers for detailed inquiries about the military service law to prevent public misinformation. — MNA/TKO
