Alleged murder victim daughter of former intelligence deputy

(DVB)–Burma’s leading state-run newspaper has confirmed that the body of a woman found dead in Rangoon last week is that of the daughter of the former deputy military intelligence chief.

Aye Aye Win (also known as Mya Thiri Khin) was found alongside her husband’s body in a flat in Rangoon’s Botataung township on 2 April.

It is widely reported that stab wounds were found on their bodies, although the cause of death has not been reported.

An obituary published yesterday in the Myanmar Alin newspaper confirmed that Aye Aye Win was the daughter of Major General Kyaw Win, the last person to serve as deputy chief of Burma’s military intelligence unit before it was disbanded.

Neighbours reported hearing arguments and scuffles on the night of the incident.

The newspaper obituary said that Kyaw Win is currently living in Shwepyithar township, Rangoon, with his wife Mi Mi Lay.

The military intelligence unit was disbanded in 2004 under corruption charges, although many point to Senior General Than Shwe’s fear of their growing influence over the army.

Kyaw Win is, however, said to be on good terms with Than Shwe.
