THE Pyithu Hluttaw session continued for the 29th day with a question and answer session and the submission of a bill yesterday.
The Pyithu Hluttaw Bill Committee put forward a bill to protect citizens’ privacy and security to the parliament.
During the Q & A session, Supreme Court Judge U Soe Nyunt replied that the Supreme Court of the Union, the highest judicial body located in Nay Pyi Taw, has no plans to open separate courts in Mandalay and Yangon to hear cases of appeal as Nay Pyi Taw is in the central area of Myanmar and is easily accessible from all parts of the country.
Next, Union Minister for Transportation and Communication U Thant Sin Maung responded to a question regarding railway services, saying that 55 up-train and 56 down-train will get a new carriage each.
Following the arrival of 36 new carriages under the purchase agreement for 100 carriages with the use of an EDCF loan of US$45million from the Republic of Korea, they will be put into service on the Mandalay-Myitkyina railroad, the Union minister said.
Works are underway to upgrade 40 used carriages from the RoK, he added.
Regarding capacity building programmes for railway staff, the ministry organised 12 training courses conducted by Japanese trainers from the Overseas Human Resources and Industry Development Association.
