Sr. General Than Shwe’s Second Daughter has made 200 Million dollars by selling Burma’s land to Chinese tycoons

Burma has been under a military dictatorship for about 40 years. This makes it one of the poorest nations in Asia. The average household income is only 10 USD per month. Along with the dictatorship CORRUPTION has rooted itself everywhere, earlier this year General Soe WIn – Prime Minister of military junta government declared the CLEAN GOVERNMENT policy and started cleaning with Burma’s most corrupted civil service department ” Custom Department” followed by actions on “Traffic Police Department” of Burma, also believed to be one of the most corrupted department in Burma. And it is also rumored that the third target will probably be the “Justice Department”
BUT “were the DIRTY hands can CLEAN?”

First week of January, 2007. The second daughter of Sr. General Than Shwe (head of Junta) have made deal with Wang Xiaohua, Chairman and Zeng Guang’an, President of Guangxi Liugong Industrial Investment Co. Ltd of Guangxi Liugong Group- CHINA, over Nanning Overseas Chinese Investment Zone (China-ASEAN economic park).

Nanning Oversea Chinese Investment Zone is established to attract the investments from ten ASEAN countries including Burma, to attract the ASEAN countries, Chinese Government offered 40 Acres of 30 years granted lands (Free of Charge) to all Asean Countries and 400 millions dollars soft loan for each land to carry out the development.

The deal was simple, Than Shwe’s daughter transfer the 30 years ownership of the (40 Acres) land which is belongs to Burma to Guangxi Liugong Group, Liugong Group claimed 400 million dollars soft loan from China bank and share or bribe 50% which is 200 million dollar to Than Shwe’s daughter.

But to legalized the deal Than Shwe’s daughter forced to brought in the local GO-NGO (Government Organized- Non Government Organization) name UMF-CCI (Union of Myanmar Federation of – Chambers of Commerce and Industry) into the deal, she ordered UMF-CCI to formed joint company with Liugong Group of China which is later named Golden Land East Asia Development Co. Ltd. Then the legalization process was done within one week (which usually took about year for normal business companies)

This information was disclosed by senior officials from Ministry of Trade who is loyal to his country (who must remained extremely anonymous), he said “who do they think they are ? (Than shew family) to do whatever they want with the properties that belongs to the state not to them”

Burma, also known as Myanmar, is ruled by a military junta which suppresses almost all dissent and wields absolute power in the face of international condemnation and sanctions. The Junta is lead by Senior General Than Shwe who is chief of army and also heads the SPDC, the body of 12 senior generals that oversees the running of the country and makes the key decisions. The generals and the army stand accused of gross human rights abuses, including the forcible relocation of civilians and the widespread use of forced labour, which includes children. The Junta has been widely accused by NGOs for its corruption which is ranked top five in the world.
