Family of Myanmar policeman who testified about entrapment evicted

A Myanmar police chief ordered officers to set up a Reuters reporter by handing over sensitive documents to him in a sting operation that also ensnared his colleague, a police official told a court yesterday.

Speaking in Insein Township Court as a witness for the prosecution, Police Captain Moe Yan Naing said that he had been threatened with arrest if he did not participate in the plot to entrap Ko Wa Lone and Ko Kyaw Soe Oo at a Yangon restaurant on December 12 past year.

"Police Brigadier Tin Ko Ko asked Htauk Kyant (township) police members to arrest Wa Lone after Lance Corporal Naing Lin handed the documents to Wa Lone when they left", he said, describing orders to "get" the reporter.

According to the police captain, Tin Ko Ko ordered an officer who had previously spoken to Wa Lone to arrange the December 12 meeting, and threatened other police officers he sent to the meeting that if they did not carry out the arrests, they would be sent to jail themselves. If the judge rules in favour of the prosecution, Moe Yan Naing's testimony will be officially struck from the record.

"This is an outrageous move", said Robert Sann Aung, a human rights lawyer.

Moe Yan Naing's wife and daughter had been living in a police dormitory in the country's capital, Naypyitaw, according to Ye Wint Naing.

They did so on 23 November, he said. Tin Ko-Ko of their 8th Safety Police Battalion.
