THE Information Team of the State Administration Council claimed that it was fake news and misinformation that civil servants and government officials were forced to attend military training in Nay Pyi Taw.
An officer remarked that it is just intentionally spreading misinformation to raise fear, insecurity and anxiety among the service personnel who are serving their rightful duties in the regular conditions at the current moment in Nay Pyi Taw.
The fake news also said that the government staff and officials in Nay Pyi Taw are allowed to travel only with the employee transport buses under tight security. Therefore, the non-CDM staff do not have a chance to abscond.
A government staff also said, “The employee transport buses have been used since before. There is no such situation that the security is tightened. I mean the security condition is just normal. Staff who come from other towns were provided better security than before. Concerning the military training news, no one ordered us to attend it or no one came to us to put our names on the list,” continuing that “We also saw those fake news. They are just a mere propaganda piece.”
The anti-government media published through social media that Tatmadaw is collecting information about the weight and height of the nonCDM male staff from different ministries and departments in Nay Pyi Taw to recruit them in the military in December to forcibly send them to the frontline.
