The trial process of five top leaders of NSCN (K) will start from May 6 in Myanmar. On Monday, Myanmar police produced the leaders in court and the next hearing was fixed on May 6.
Yun Aung led NSCN (K) leaders were arrested by Tatmadaw (Myanmar army) during a raid on March 9 on the outfit’s liaison office at Khamti in Sagaing region of Myanmar. Later, they were handed over to the police on March 26. They were identified as NSCN (K)’s ‘peace committee’ leader U An Kam, ‘spokesperson’ U Kyaw Wan Sein and officers U Saw Htein, Aung Mai and Aung Sai. A top commander of Myanmar-based rebel group said, “NSCN (K) leadership is trying to release the arrested leaders from the jail and have requested the government to release them as peace process is underway.”
The Tatmadaw accused NSCN (K) of helping rebel outfits like ULFA (I), NDFB (S), KLO, PDCK, UNLF, KYKL, PLA and PREPAK in Myanmar’s soil to fight against India.
