Over the two days of the workshops, police were given talks by the Myanmar Tour Guide Association, Hanns Seidel Foundation and Strohal Legal Group.... in Myanmar.
Every attendee also got a copy of the Responsible Tourism Policy, which was developed in cooperation with the Myanmar Tourism Board, the Ministry of Hotels & Tourism and the Hanns-Seidel-Foundation. Issues addressed included a broad spectrum of issues for the new tourism police force, such as restrictions and responsibilities of the police, cooperation with other actors, investigations, arrests, tourist crime, cruelty to children and traffickers, United Nations standards on humanitarian law, and accident and robbery.

Said the demonstrators had neglected to inform the community police in advanced about the protests and the place and goals of the outcry.
In addition, the protests had disrupted the public and the police accused them in accordance with section 20 of the law on non-violent assembly and procession. While the conflict between the Tatmadaw and the Kachin Independence Army (KIA) in the north of Kachin intensified, youngsters from Tamwe in Yangon protested peacefully on Saturday, demanding the end of the conflict and the full support of those who had been IDPs.
Approximately 50 members joined the group and their guides were planning a quiet walk from the Ocean mall in the Bahan township to Maha Bandula Park. The police blockaded and scattered the demonstrators outside the mall. Five men and four wives were detained by the police, but were set free a year later.
Collisions took place in front of the police when pro-military demonstrators began to strike at the anti-war protests. Consequently, police invaded the lines of protestors for freedom while they left the pro-military demonstrators alone. Anyone sentenced under 20 of the Peaceful Assembly and Procession Act may be sentenced to a custodial sentence of up to one months, a monetary penalty of K10,000 or both.
"We sent a note to six cities on Wednesday to inform them in anticipation of the protests. So far we have not got an offical message", said protester Ma Ei Ei. On Saturday, a declaration by the demonstrators was published on the police activities, stating: "We began to walk in peace, but police officers and nationals in civil dress hit and detained us".
MEPs also urged the public peace movement committee to examine the use of force by the police in the expulsion of demonstrators and to bring those responsible to account.
