Military court of northern command of Kachin state last month sentenced its soldier to a seven-year imprisonment on three charges of misconduct which could lead to suspicion and mistrust between Tatmataw and people, according to the report of Myawady media on Sunday.
The military-run media said locals accused the soldier from a command in Bhamo township, Kachin state, of trespassing, rape and murder attempt on a 73-year-old woman.
While the military officials are making investigation into the accusation, the Kachin Baptist Convention (KBC), a local religious humanitarian aid group, took to street against the case.
The investigation panel found that the soldier just visited the woman who has been familiar with him, and no rape case happened in the forensic test.
However, the military court sentenced the soldiers to seven years to be served at civil prison for his misconduct after court hearings attended by local people, his relatives and members of KBC.
The Defence Services has warned it will take legal actions against the offenders who undermine trust between the military and the public.
