The Anti-Corruption Commission inspected the complaints against the officials of the Yangon City Development Committee.
According to the findings, former minister U Han Tun for Agriculture, Livestock and Breeding, Forest and Energy of Yangon Region Government, Yangon ex-mayor U Maung Maung Soe, former vice-mayor U Soe Lwin, former secretary Daw Hlaing Maw Oo and former joint secretary U Than failed to calculate the land area at K20,000 per square feet set by Internal Revenue Department in granting 60-year land lease grant for two land plots measuring over five acres in Dagon Myothit Township in 2018 and 2019 to open fuel stations to partner companies of Yangon Region Government and let them pay K2,000 per square feet, and so it caused more than K4,200 million losses of the State budget.
Ex-minister U Han Tun of the Yangon Region government, ex-mayor U Maung Maung Soe and former joint secretary U Than also failed to calculate the land area at K100 million per square feet set by the Internal Revenue Department in granting a 60-year land lease grant for more than 63 acres of land in Dagon Myothit Township in 2019 to open a fuel station with the name of a partner company of Yangon Region government and let it pay K2,000 per square feet, and it caused more than K800 million losses to the State fund. They also allowed to change the name of the grant with the name of the member of BOD of the company for the partner company-owned land and it sold the land at K6,570 million to a private company and more than 63 acres of land were lost.
Ex-mayor U Maung Maung Soe and former joint secretary U Than did not follow the facts of mining procedures in 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 regarding the coal mining jointly conducted by YCDC and a company. They reduced the price of coal price to K42,000 per tonne from the original price of K77,000 and allowed to produce lesser than the estimated amount. Therefore, it caused K550 million losses to the State budget.
Former mayor U Maung Maung Soe, vice-mayor U Soe Lwin, secretary Daw Hlaing Maw Oo and joint secretary U Than did not apply the fixed price of the Internal Revenue Department and reduced the rental fees while the Playgrounds and Garden Department agreed with companies for 21 garden work sites in the 2019-2020FY. Although the Auditor-General Office suggested collecting the proper fees according to the current situation, they did not follow it. Therefore, the State lost more than K21,000 million.
Former mayor U Maung Maung Soe, vice-mayor U Soe Lwin, secretary Daw Hlaing Maw Oo and joint secretary U Than used only the State budget in paying the salaries of City FM staff although it must be paid by YCDC and partner company. The Auditor-General office suggested amending, but they did not do anything. And so, it caused more than 70 million losses to the State budget for paying salaries from July 2018 to January 2021.
Therefore, former minister U Han Tun for Agriculture, Livestock and Breeding, Forest and Energy of Yangon Region Government and former mayor U Maung Maung Soe were prosecuted under Section 55 of the Anti-Corruption Law while former vice-mayor U Soe Lwin, secretary Daw Hlaing Maw Oo, joint secretary U Than and BOD member U Zin Min Aung under Sections 55/63 of the Anti-Corruption Law at Kyauktada Myoma police station of Yangon Region yesterday, according to the commission. — MNA
