Unofficial and Subversive Media Circulate Rumours and Fabrication on Social Media Platforms

Unofficial and subversive media have been creating and spreading rumours and fabricated news all round to create instability and unrest across the country; sowing discord between the Tatmadaw and the people, and using various ways to create a misleading impression of the Tatmadaw in the international arena. Under this context; 

  • “Khit Thit”, an unofficial media, circulated the false information that security forces arrested more than 20 young men in the Thebyu Village of Ngayokekaung Township within three days. It is just an allegation. In reality, the security forces only took stability and security measures in the village and its surrounding area but they did not arrest any local people.
  • “RFA Burmese”, an unofficial media, alleged that security forces detained about 600 civilians who returned to Sittway and Kyaukpyu towns from Yangon by flights. It is just fabrication. In reality, security forces conducted their regular checks for security on them and did not detain anybody.         

          With the purpose to cause public panic, subversive media abetting terrorists and those who disturb community peace and tranquility are spreading one-sided misinformation that security personnel forcibly arrested people at night as porter via online media platforms, covering up for terrorist acts. Again, those media are creating fabrication and making the people feel hatred for the Tatmadaw, it is reported.
