At the meeting, Yangon Region Minister for Security and Border Affairs Col Tin Aung Tun replied, “Criminal can effectively have action taken if and when there exist good practices of management among judicial bodies. The reason is that it is wholly concerned with the management of judicial bodies to sentence offenders to punishments they deserve,” in answer to a question raised by U Zaw Win Naing, Hluttaw member of Latha Township constituency 1 as to whether there are presently plans and arrangements to take action against rapists of minors, cases of torturing and armed groups’ murders which occurred in the country.
There were 139 murder cases committed alone or by a pair of perpetrators up to October 2016, 159 murder cases committed by two or alone in 2015, 17 group murder cases committed by three or above up to 17 October 2016 and 32 group murder cases committed by three or above, of which 29 had already been sued, it is learnt.
Colonel Tin Aung Tun added, “Offenders were arrested and the State confiscated their possessions seized from them after investigation by anti-Money Laundering Unit.
Thingangyun Constituency MP Nay Phone Latt urged authorities to stop towing cars that break traffic rules in Yangon downtown, suggesting cars’ being locked on street instead of towing.
The MP pointed out that neither the government nor the company is held accountable when cars got damaged while towing.
According to official figures, authorities took action against 450 illegally parked cars last month. It was the highest kind of violation of traffic rules in Yangon.—Ko Moe
