8 November, Yangon
Plaintiff Police Major Tin Shwe was questioned by the lawyer of the suspects involved in the court case of the Arakan Association (Singapore). They are being prosecuted under the sections of anti-terrorism law on 8 November.
The lawyer of the suspects asked whether taxi driver Ko Myat Lay Oo, who was arrested together with Ko Tin Hlaing Oo and Ma May Gyi, should be held liable under the sections in prosecution since he provided transport services to the two suspects.
Plaintiff Police Major Tin Shwe said, “It’s a valid question but action is being taken against Ko Myat Lay Oo nonetheless because he transported people related to AA.”
A plea was submitted to the court to accept the business card of taxi driver Ko Myat Lay Oo as evidence, the law officer of the plaintiff objected that the telephone number on the card was different from the telephone number recorded in the case file.
After the objection, Ko Myat Lay Oo showed his two SIM cards and the court accepted the SIM cards as evidence.
Eight people including Ko Aung Myat Kyaw, brother of the Arakan Army (AA) Chief of Staff, who are leaders of Arakan Association (Singapore), are having action taken against them under Section 50 (j) and Section 52 (a) of the Anti-Terrorism Law.
