hear the news
Let us inform that at present 16,000 people from Myanmar have been given shelter in the three Indian states of Mizoram, Manipur and Nagaland. But civil society groups and government officials predict the number is likely to rise further in the coming months. Most of the people of Myanmar have sought asylum in Mizoram. Here the authorities are keeping a close watch on pro-democracy fighters. They have received information that many people are moving beyond the limits of the dense forests of the Tiau River.
The advisor said that we will not allow them to train in Mizoram where a group of about 50 people had organized a training camp in early May.

A senior government source in New Delhi said that our biggest concern is that if the insurgents cross the border, they will give oxygen to the rebels in Naga and Manipur. Two dozen such groups are working on the border.

Anti-Corruption Commission accuses Sookie of taking bribe
The anti-corruption commission in military-ruled Myanmar has said that ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi abused her position to gain advantage in real estate deals and took bribes. Sookie’s lawyers had already dismissed the allegations when the military government first raised these issues three months ago.
Supporters of Sookie say that all the allegations are politically motivated and are an attempt to tarnish her image. The news said Sookie has been charged under Section 55 of the Anti-Corruption Act, which carries a maximum jail term of 15 years.
