Junta Detains NLD Members in Myin Chan

A member of the opposition party National League for Democracy has been detained by Junta on the 26th of September despite the fact that since suffering a stroke 6 years ago, he has not fully recovered, and is barely mobile.
U Myint Lwin, a member of the Campaigning Division of Myin Chan, Mandalay State, is a stroke victim and as the family has no idea about his whereabouts, the family has been worried, according to his wife, Daw Kyin Thaung.
When the family made inquiries at the local police office, they were told that U Myint Lwin has been helping them with some investigations, but when he was not released the next morning, the anxious family members sent medications.
"When he was not released the next morning, we went over to give him some medications, food and mineral water. But they told us that he has been sent to the city of Mandalay," said Daw Kyin Thaung.
Ever since having a stroke 6 years ago, U Myint Lwin has been only able to move about slowly using a walking stick, and has been on constant medication. The two other men from the Myin Chan NLD to be detained together are U Paw Thein and U Bo See, who were also said to be in ill health prior to the arrests.
