Junta Attempts To Cover Up


Junta arranged a clandestine cremation of the bodies of the protesters, who died as a result of the beatings by its troops, at 7am this morning at the Htein Pin Cemetery. Families were informed by the Ministry of Internal Affairs about the arrangement.

A family member said that not more than 10 people, including family members, are allowed to attend the funeral, and each of them has to present his/her National Identification card.

Among those scheduled to be cremated were Ko Tun Tun Lin from South Okkalapa, and Maung Zeya Naing, a high school student. Both families received similar letters from the Ministry informing them that they are not allowed to hold prayer sessions for the dead.

Both Ko Tun Tun Lin and Maung Zeya Naing were involved in Friday's protests, and were beaten to death by troops.
