The Democratic Voice of Burma (DVB), an illegal subversive media outlet, is spreading misinformation on social networks, alleging that security forces in Mawlamyine Township, Mon State, have arrested and extorted money from at least 50 young men between 10 and 24 February.

However, according to a security official from Mawlamyine Township, security operations in Mawlamyine are aimed at law enforcement and maintaining community peace. There have been no arrests of young individuals or incidents of extortion.

Similarly, false information is being circulated in townships and wards in Ayeyawady Region, claiming that personal data is being collected from men aged between 18 and 35.

These illegal subversive media outlets, which seek to disrupt community peace and stability, are spreading propaganda to instigate fear and unrest. They disseminate false news, such as claims that security forces and administrative organizations are forcibly recruiting individuals for military service and conducting unwarranted arrests.
