The Central Committee for Reviewing Confiscated Farmlands and Other Lands held a meeting yesterday at the Ministry of Home Affairs in Nay Pyi Taw.
Chairman of the Central Committee, Vice President U Henry Van Thio, delivered the opening speech.
Attending the meeting were Vice Chairman of the Central Committee and Union Minister Dr. Aung Thu, Union Ministers Lieutenant General Sein Win, U Ohn Win, U Khin Maung Cho and U Win Khaing, Union Attorney General U Tun Tun Oo, Chairman of the Nay Pyi Taw Council Dr. Myo Aung and chairmen of state and region level committees for reviewing confiscated farmlands and other lands.
The Vice President said the Central Committee and the Speaker of the Pyithu Hluttaw met on 31 July 2017 and discussed the policies and framework of the Central Committee. They discussed on how to include members of the Pyithu Hluttaw, Amyotha Hluttaw and Regional and State Level Hluttaw into the Central Committee.
The Central Committee said they had notified the various Hluttaw representatives in advance of including them in sub-committees on reviewing confiscated farmlands for each region and state. The Central Committee said there needs to be reports on surveying and reviewing confiscated farmlands. The central committee said they need to place importance on direct complaints signed by victims of confiscated lands and review complaints sent by representatives of the victims.
The Vice President then went on to say the Central Committee conducts meetings with state and regional Hluttaw representatives and ministry officials to solve complaints of the confiscated lands. So far the Central Committee has solved cases from Mandalay and Bago regions, Kachin, Kayah, Chin and Shan states.
The Vice President said that the sub-committees need to issue official reports on land that has been returned to their owners so as to raise public awareness.
U Tin Myint, Permanent Secretary of the Central Committee, presented the status of reviewing complaints of victims of confiscated lands and restoring ownership. Afterwards, the Vice President gave his overall remarks based on the presentations made.—Myanmar News Agency
