False claims of cash collection by Tatmadaw and PNO debunked by officials

Fake news is spreading on social media, claiming that Tatmadaw and PNO were collecting K500,000 to K800,000 per house for military expenses on 17 June in Hsihseng Township, Shan State.
According to a security official from the relevant area and a representative of the PNO, no cash is collected from the houses; this is false news. The report further affirmed that they are only conducting security operations to maintain peace and tranquillity, protect the lives and property of local people, and ensure the rule of law.
Therefore, this is merely fake stories intentionally spread by subversive media outlets to create misunderstanding between the public and the security forces. — MNA/TRKM
