Copper Mine Report Not Yet Due: Commission

A parliamentary commission that is investigating a copper mine in northwestern Burma’s Sagaing Division announced on Sunday that its eagerly awaited report is still being compiled. It was previously announced that it would be released on Dec. 31 and later on Jan. 31. The commission, which is headed by NLD leader Aung San Suu Kyi, announced in the state-run New Light of Myanmar that President Thein Sein received a provisional report on Jan. 19. On Feb. 8, the commission discussed “compilation of the final report.” The commission said it recently met six monks, who were among about 90 monks injured during a brutal police raid on a protest against the Chinese-backed mine on Nov. 29.


One Response to Copper Mine Report Not Yet Due: Commission

    That’s HOW THEY PLAY the GAME man!
    Form an INVESTIGATING COMMITTEE/COMMISSION and the REPORT NEVER COMES UP of course.
    TIME is the KILLING MACHINE employed by the likes of Than Shwe and his ilk since TIME IMMEMORABLE lest you guys forget.
    And Daw Suu is NO EXCEPTION for that MATTER as well.
    PROMISE man!
    That’s what counts in the first place, right?
    HOW DO YOU RATE A MAN/WOMAN WHO COULD/WOULD NOT KEEP a PROMISE?
    “It was previously announced that it would be released on Dec. 31 and later on Jan. 31”.
    It is now February 12, 2013. Right?
    Where’s the report?
    Even a PROVISIONAL REPORT is NOT PUBLICIZED yet.
    What happened?
    Daw Suu is HEADING the INVESTIGATION. Right?
    Hence, Thein Sein has NO CALL nor RIGHT to “EDIT” the REPORT in the first place and by all decency as well.
    The fact that Thein Sein is having the FIRST LOOK at the REPORT evidenced: Daw Suu’s ROLE as HEAD of the COMMISSION HOLDS NO WATER much less CLOUT and CREDIBILITY as well for that matter to say the least.
    If it is the case in the first place, Thein Sein should HEAD the INVESTIGATING himself and REPORT or ADDRESS the MATTER at his OWN DISCRETION I say..
    Another way to put it: The Copper Mine Investigation is a SET-UP (frame up) on the part of Than Shwe (Thein Sein’s EMPLOYER) to DISCREDIT Daw Suu’s ROLE/CREDIBILITY/CLOUT only by PITTING HER AGAINST the PEOPLE of BURMA who are VERY DEAR and COUNTING/RELYING ON HER CHARACTER, CHARISMA, COURAGE and most importantly UNCORRUPTABLE NATURE in the first place and since day one.
    The PEOPLE of BURMA has DEMANDED that
    1. Copper Mine Project should be HALTED altogether in the first place
    2. The RESPONSIBLE CULPRITS should be publicly EXPOSED and JUSTICE RENDERED as well for the HEINOUS ACT – firebombing the sleeping Buddhist monks and people on the early dawn of November 29, 2012 – starting with the SACKING of the HOME/INTERNAL AFFAIRS MINISTER given the fact without his EXPLICIT ORDER nothing of this sort of HORRENDOUS ACT could/would be CARRIED OUT in the first place, any bets?
    3, Return ALL LANDS/PROPERTY EXPROPRIATED by the joint venture for the mining project to the respective FARMERS/LAND OWNERS/RELIGIOUS ENTITIES (Buddhist monks).
    4. Give DUE COMPENSATION/REPARATION to ALL AGGRIEVED PEOPLE/PERSONS in question in this matter.
    Failing to COMPLY/RESPOND in FULL to these DEMANDS (right and fair as well) would CULMINATE in Daw Suu BEARING the BRUNT of the PEOPLE’S WRATH on whom the PEOPLE HAVE HEAPED MUCH ANTICIPATION, HOPE, LOVE and RESPECT/WORSHIP for their FUTURE, PROSPERITY, POSTERITY and SALVATION as well no doubt.
    Hence, Daw Suu is PUT in JEOPARDY/HARM’S WAY by Thein Sein (Than Shwe’s clerk) assigning her as HEAD of the INVESTIGATING COMMISSION with a view to DISCREDIT HER in the EYES of her PEOPLE in the first place no less folks.
    And Daw Suu as well has SWALLOWED the BAIT (hook, line and sinker as well) of course by ACQUIESCING to HANDLE the HOT POTATO since day one as well.
    LET’S PRAY and HOPE for the BEST for HER as this REPORT would BEAR WITNESS/JUDGE her CREDIBILITY, INTEGRITY, SINCERITY, TEMERITY etc. on both the short and long runs on the personal and political future/picture and life of Burma’s freedom fighter and world icon of democracy, today playing a PROXY ROLE for Than Shwe’s clerk only in place of the LEADER of the OPPOSITION fighting for DEMOCRACY, FREEDOM and HUMAN RIGHTS – specifically ABOLISHING/AMENDING Than Shwe’s Nargis CONSTITUTION as the first step in that direction – in that PUPPET PARLIAMENT at Naypyidaw.
