Government troops set up camp in the monastery field and violate the agreement of NCA

Government LIB 151 who were based in Kunhing went to Nar Lor monastery Kho Aot bloc Kho Lam Township and then built the camp and lived there.

On 17 Oct to 4 Nov, 2016 a lot of troops from LIB 151 of the government set up a camp and lived in the monastery field about 18 days and didn’t shift from one place to another. Although all of Kho Lam people and the officer of RCSS liaison, including the abbot informed LIB 151 on 18/10/2016 not to build camps in the monastery field and to move out from the monastery field, they still lived on to 4/11/2016.

 

People couldn’t pray and donate at the monastery freely due to government troops settling down in the monastery a lot. So the government army broke the agreement in the JMC (Military Code of Conduct (COC)) such as “the military can’t built camps and live in the public properties and destroy them too”.
