Chinese businessman flouts KIO court’s order

A Chinese businessman has clearly ignored the decision of a court of the Kachin Independence Organization (KIO). The court passed its judgment in a case between a Kachin businessman, Tsinyu Zau Mung, the owner of Seng Bum Company and Chinese businessman Kyaw Myint, the owner of 'Hole in One' company. So the problem between them continues, a source said.

A source close to the Kachin businessman said, a judgment in the case was delivered by a KIO court last year too. The recent judgment was the second. Even last year’s decision was ignored. After the court judgment, the vice-chairman of KIO, Lt-Gen N'ban La Awng once again granted permission to the Chinese businessman to continue jade mining.

However, the court judged fairly once again as the two companies agreed to mine for jade in their own area. But soon after the hearing in the court, the Chinese businessman flouted the court’s order, he added.

Despite the KIO court’s judgment, the Chinese businessman approached high ranking KIO’s officers and used the same method as in the past to get permission to mine again in the Kachin businessman’s area.

According to Hpakant jade traders, the Chinese jade mine company started excavating on April 9 in the area of the Kachin businessman with the help of high ranking KIO officers.

According to a KIO insider there has many corrupt practices and taking of personal advantages among KIO’s officers and they have been unable to stand by the Kachins.
