Terrorists Create and Spread Disinformation and Fake News in order to Cause Unrest and Misunderstand the Tatmadaw

Destructive media and some media abetting acts of terrorism are continuously spreading disinformation and fake news because they aim to create misunderstanding among the local people over the Government, the Tatmadaw and concerned administrative bodies; cause unrest in the area; and strike terror into the public.

  • A news report stated that the police members of the Winka police station and staff of the Taungzun Prison in Belin Township abandoned their station and prison due to the fear of being attacked. It is just a vague rumour, said the officials serving there.
  • A news report alleged that the Tatmadaw personnel are stationing in the Sittwe University. It is just groundless allegations that intend to make the people misunderstand the Tatmadaw. As regards the allegation, the Tatmadaw personnel do not station there and they just provide security measures from outside the campus for students to study at the said-university peacefully in school time.

Unlawful destructive media which abet to acts of terrorism are spreading such rumors in order to make civil servants who fulfill the state’s duty and peaceable local ethnic people. The Government is continuing to take necessary measures for the peace and stability of the state as well as the prevalence of law and order, it is reported.
