Fake news spread: Women for military service might face violence

G1

The malicious media outlets spread fake news, claiming that the women’s organizations, including Hninzi Yaung Women’s Union, released statements to raise public concerns saying the women who are recruited to serve in the military might face violence.
Regarding the People’s Military Service Law, the phone numbers to be able to contact the Central Body for Summoning People’s Military Servants were released on 13 February, and it was also announced that, at present, women would not be recruited for military service yet. Moreover, SMS is also sent to notify the public of information regarding the People’s Military Service Law, which can be explored at https://mod.gov.mm/node/74.
However, malicious media outlets circulate misinformation and rumours, saying that pedestrians are being forcibly taken as porters and stimulating young people to lead in the wrong ways. Currently, they also circulate fake news like women might be forcibly taken for military service.
Therefore, accurate information, public awareness talks and announcements regarding military service are being broadcast or released via the State-run media and at https://mod.gov.mm/node/74. — MNA/KTZH
