Another round of conflict within SPDC

Tuesday, August 19, 2008
Intelligence: Another round of conflict within SPDC
Sources close to regime said that customers of the Kanbaza Bank withdrew saving and other business accounts unusually. Since yesterday, the customers have withdrawn, and today more customers came to the Kanbawza branches and headquarters for withdrawing.

Security has been tightening more than usual in Rangoon; mainly downtown area and other intersections since Sunday.

Rumors said that Banker, who is closed to SPDC second man, vice senior general Maung Aye, was being investigated for illicit drug related money laundering and bank would be nationalized soon. Rangoon Business community worried that this was a part of the power struggle between top two and it could negatively affect the economy which has already been worsen.

Mizzima News also carried this rumor and bank official denied the rumor on 29th July. However, close to the regime said that Kanbawza Bank situation wasn’t normal and known as a hardliner, information minister general Kyaw San’s office did investigate the bank functions, customers’ lists and regulations.

This counter investigation without approving from the home ministry was questioned; information ministry has no right to investigate the bank’s regulation and its customers’ lists.

However, there were similar cases during last year, when government mouthpiece newspapers carried news of investigation against the 88 generation student leaders without knowledge of police Special Branch and other security officials besides regular propaganda articles.

Nikkei News quoted “Myanmar's detained democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi, 63, is seriously sick in bed, suffering a severe case of low blood pressure, a source close to the country's military government told The Nikkei Wednesday.”

Daw Aung San Suu Kyi was scheduled to meet with United Nations envoy Ibrahim Gambari on Wednesday morning, but the meeting had not taken place as of 2:30 p.m. local time (5:00 p.m. JST).Her blood pressure has fallen so low that she cannot get out of bed, the source said.

Dr. Tin Myo Win has treated her low blood pressure since 1995.

However, recently SPDC had refused to allow her physician to meet her for regular medical checkup since January 2008, more than six months of without proper treatment. If her health keeps declining, regime must take a full responsibility for the outcome of her wellbeing.
