The State of Emergency was declared on 1 February 2021 and it was already announced that action will be taken against those violate the Section 144 of Criminal Procedure and commit incitement to join CDM by force on 26 February.
About 1000 protesters shouting out slogans marched to the Taninthayi Region Administration Council Office in Dawei yesterday morning.
The respective administrative officials and security forces requested the protest crowd to disperse over hand speakers for many times. But the protesters did not disperse and attempted to destroy the security barriers. Therefore, the police dispersed the protest crowd in accordance with the crowd dispersal methods and the crowd dispersed for a while. Then, about 100 protesters attacked the security forces with stones and so the police fired rubber bullets of .12V gun.
Meanwhile, four rioters who attacked the police from the front side got injuries and died on the way to hospital.
Although the State Administration Council is not willing to take action against the civilians under the existing law, the council released announcements for the public to know the criminal procedures and not to follow the incitement that harm the stability of the state. Therefore, it is requested to the people not to follow the negative incitement of NLD politicians, and to continue to focus onlivelihoods.—MNA
