U Khin Nyunt: Then and Now

Khin Nyunt, Myanmar's ex-prime minister and former chief of the Myanmar Military intelligence, was released from house arrest in Yangon on Friday, Jan. 13, 2012. Myanmar freed many of its prominent political prisoners on last friday (Jan. 13, 2012), Khin Nyunt is one of them.

U Khin Nyunt who was released from House Arrest 

Khin Nyunt was appointed as its first secretary (Secretary −1), a post which he held until his appointment as Prime Minister in August 2003. Shortly after Khin Nyunt was appointed as Prime Minister, he announced a seven-point roadmap to democracy; this roadmap was heavily criticized by the Burmese opposition as well as by many foreign governments especially Western ones as it envisaged a permanent military participation in the government. The so-called 'systematic and step-by-step implementation of the road-map to democracy' also contained no time-line. On 18 October 2004, in a one-sentence announcement signed by SPDC Chairman Senior General Than Shwe, Khin Nyunt was "permitted to retire on health grounds". However, he was immediately arrested and placed under protective custody. Allegations of Khin Nyunt's corruption were officially made several days later. On 5 July 2005, Khin Nyunt was tried by a Special Tribunal inside Insein prison near Rangoon on various corruption charges. On 21 July 2005, he was sentenced to 44 years in prison, though it is believed that he is ostensibly serving his sentence under house arrest instead of in prison. Khin Nyunt's sons were also sentenced to 51 and 68 years respectively. (From Wikipedia)

  1. Almost over 10 years of life in prison, that must be tough for that guy Khin Nyunt. Admin, public may need some close up insights and views on some posts on what he is going to do now or where he is leading his life. MRTV4 shoudl interview Khin Nyunt. Let's hope that he would allow interviews. ;D :)

  2. Khin Nyunt was pressured and asked to put restrain orders and some jail times for political jail birds. Other than that, he was not even willing to do half of that.

  3. Khin Nyunt and his MI gang are the real culprit who put Burma to shithole in pose-88 era. The other military leaders contained the situation and they have now implemented democratic reforms. Now led by and under the guidance of our Honourable President U Thein Sein, we are moving towards a genuine democratic nation so that we, Myanmar people, can stand proud in the world again.

  4. Yes. I totally agreed. He is behind for all the political punishment. Without him, Than Shwe can’t don much and once retire, he try to release the country and exchange with forgiveness as he know our burmese weak point. If Khin Nyunt is still around I don't think this will happen. All road Map are his stupid shit and he is thinking that he might be the future leader. He was kicked out not because of democracy activities, but because too much power and crush... So don't be so stupid and forgive him as traditional stupid burmese thinking...
    *** Please wake up ppl... be united and descipine, and also dont demend too much and forgiveful...

  5. I agreed with some points mentioned. Khin Nyunt was trained by Ne Win who was responcible for the problems we are facing now. It was U Nu who was weak and he handed over the country to Ne Win. Khin Nyunt was involved in his poltical ambitious and I hope he is now retired for good. Let the President Thein Sein and Lady Su to lead us and be proud of our Mother Land again. This is the time we need to trust each other. Time has come and we can.

  7. In every game of chess the player use his ponds,horses,bishops,castles, queen & king to attack and to win his opponent. One thing for sure U Khin Nyunt was not the player but one of the figuring on chess board...who was been used by a cunning player.
