"GET WA LONE"
Since January, the Yangon courts have been conducting trials to determine whether the couple are indicted under the law on official secrecy, which provides for a 14-yearjail. Moe Yan Naing's statement "cannot be accepted as real - we still have to pay attention to the surviving eyewitnesses to make the matter clearer", he said.
The police commander said in his statement that he had been questioned by Wa Lone in November about police missions in the state of Rakhine. It was one of two senior officials of the Eighth Security Police Battalion paramilitaries who were reportedly "involved in the case" by police in December. He was arrested on the 12th of December, charged with violation of the police disciplinary law.
Upon his arrival, he said that he was in a group of several other Battalion 8 police officers who had given Wa Lone testimonies. Mr Moe Yan Naing said to the tribunal that Brigadier General Tin Ko Ko Ko, who headed the in-house investigation, ordered Lance Corporal Naing Lin police to meet Wa Lone that evening and deliver "secret Battalion 8 documents".
"Brigadier Police General Tin Ko Ko Ko Ko gave the papers to Police Lance Corporal Naing Lin and asked him to give them to Wa Lone, saying that when Wa Lone comes out of the police station, the Htaunt Kyant local police will have to capture and detain him," said Moe Yan Naing.
"Brigadier General Tin Ko Ko Police said to the police: "If you don't get Wa Lone, you'll go to jail," said Moe Yan Naing. Said to the tribunal that he was a witness to the trade. The police commissioner said he had infringed police ethics and" dishonored the trade unions administration and misunderstood the trade unions administration by the multinational community".
He has previously been a police officer in Rakhine state and in a leading police station in the capitol Naypyitaw, the police spokesperson and regional press said. Myo Thu Soe said he is currently the leader of Yangon's No. 2 Yangon Police Safety Detachment, which monitors them.
The Myo Thu Soe refused to go into any further detail on the allegations made by Moe Yan Naing during his statement. Reporter said they were almost immediately apprehended by family members after being curled up in a Yangon north Yangon restaurants by two police who had not previously known them.
None of the police have testified so far during the trial. Earlier police testimonies have said that reports were held and raided at a road safety check point by officials who did not know they were investigators, and that they had documentation related to police operations in Rakhine. Moe Yan Naing's statement was followed by a proposal from senior public attorney Kyaw Min Aung to declare him an "enemy witness," according to defense attorney Khin Maung Zaw.
When Khin Maung Zaw said that if he called the testimonies "hostile," the court would place less emphasis on his statement. He added, however, that "we can still use his report card together with the other information, testimonies and evidence".
