On June 15, members of the commission visited Myanmar Sithu Co.'s goldmining facilities and the results and impacts are presented to Hluttaw, said the commission chairman, U Kyaw Thiha.
A brook, on which the inhabitants of the villages are dependent, was ruined by wastes. We have currently called on the Group to stop the reduction. We need the firm to rebuild the stream. In May, Yehtwets inhabitants report on the effects on the environment of goldmining and the loss of jobs. Forestry Ministry formally declared the delimitation of Yehtvet in 2011 and reaffirmed it in 2015, but Myanmar Sithu Co began sub-contracting to Myanmar Economic Holdings Ltd and worked in the settlement in 2014, the locals said.
The grievances include trespassing in 44 homes, the demolition of the streams for potable in the villages by the company's garbage, a life-threatening electrical barbwire for the villagers and in some cases even their deaths. "The conditions of the firm ran out earlier this year. There' s about 6 blocs near the town.
They' re not doing anything for the town. There is a joint-stock corporation founded by the people. When blocs are allocated, we want the business that belongs to our inhabitants to be preferred," said Daw Nyunt. There' s also a mining law.
Trustee swears to stop the illicit trafficking in the township Thabeikkyin
The illicit trafficking of bovine animals and indigenous ressources must stop and alternate revenue streams must be found, said an official of Thabeikkyin municipality. Mandalay region is known for illicit extraction of bullion and other mineral assets, but Township Admin U Aung Moe Oo wants to put an end to the raging sabotage.
"When we try to eradicate[illegal business], we need to consider what we can do for those who make a living from illicit trafficking, which may be the only option available to them. Otherwise the illicit trafficking will never go away. Overweight in illicit trafficking has weakened the legitimacy of profit, he added.
"In the municipality of Thabeikkyin the sale of bovine and caprine animals can only take place with a certificate from the municipal authorities. We' re going to set up an organization to apprehend those who import and sell bovine animals illegally," he said. However, the Kyrgyz authorities should not be the only ones responsible for cleansing the township's industrial sector, he said.
In order for the scheme to be a success, people must also act in a responsible manner by complying with the laws and provisions on licensing and the payment of tax on goods. Already 748 illegal bovine animals were confiscated and kept in the relevant local outposts. Following an examination of the cases, the livestock is marketed according to the management.
This division has been receiving several grievances in connection with the illicit trafficking and is hoping to make up the shortfall. However, livestock traders who say that they have done the right thing and have followed the regulations to obtain all the necessary authorisations say that their companies are hurting. "Those who have signed up with the MCDC and are paying taxes to the federal administration to buy beef are faced with losses," said U Thaung Khine, who has a commercial license.
They and other vendors want tougher rules and a more thorough fight against smuggling. Aung Naing, a Pyithu Hluttaw deputy in Thabeikkyinownship, said he was planning to ask a question about the issue in the House and make a suggestion on how to deal with the issue of trafficking.
