About 20 cars from Three Pagodas Pass today were forced to transport ministers from Karen State.

Sources in Three Pagodas Pass, which near to the Thai-Burmese border reported that Burmese authorities, including army and police, told car owners they needed 30 cars for transporting the ministers and accompanying security forces.

“They told us if we do not want to give our car, we would have to pay 40 liters of gasoline instead, which would cost 2,400 baht,” said a car driver.

There were about 200 cars in Three Pagodas Pass and all the owners had to give money if they did not go.

“They have all the people who own cars on their lists. They called every one by phone to ask for money,” said the source.

Government troops from Light Infantry Battalion 283 based in Three Pagodas Pass forced 15 cars to transport weapons and supplies to Thanbyuzayat Township during a troop rotation on 13 May.
The LIB No. 283 gave 70,000 Burmese kyat for each car.

Sixty-three years of fighting between the Burmese government and the KNU troops ended after the KNU agreed to a ceasefire in January 12.
