Narcotics, cash and wild animals in Myanmar's most covert state.
Myanmar's Shan State's isolated Wa area in eastern Myanmar is a place few outside observers have seen. Inhabitants of this inofficial, effective self-governing state in Myanmar used to be known as Wild Wa, and as Jonah Fisher of the BBC found out, drug use, cash and wild animal trafficking are on the up.
However, time in Myanmar and Wa state is shifting. We entered the country via a checkpoint not far from Myanmar's north-eastern frontier with China. After we have been thoroughly examined by Myanmar troops, we traverse no man's country and are received by our coaches of the TV channel Wa TV.
The state of Wales is about the equivalent of Wales with a total of about half a million people. It' really a state in a state embracing the China frontier. Indeed, the state of Wales is more like China than Myanmar. "We don't want to be independent, we want to be part of Myanmar. While a well-armed insurgent force keeps the Myanmar armed forces at bay, strong trade relations with China have enabled the River Wales to develop and flourish.
We''ll talk our counselors into letting us talk to Justice Minister Li San Lu. "They are all made in China, India and Thailand. When we felt mutiny that evening, we jumped over caraoke, avoided the caregivers and made our way to Panghsan, the state city.
There was a store on almost every road where parts of the extinct species were sold. Myanmar's most popular animal fair, Mong La, is only 100 km away, but what stands out about Panghsan is how organized and high quality it is. They are not stands but super markets for vulnerable animal parts.
This is an unprecedented entry into the profitable China business. "Seeing a high-end store that sells high value-added critical threat varieties shows that this issue is not going anywhere. "It is still in great need and there is a great deal of spending on these goods. After they were compelled by the Chineses to talk, the WADA delegations left the first morning angrily when they received the false credentials.
