About On the Job Trainees

I'm writing to express my sincere gratitude to you and your esteemed Police Corps for your full support in consultation3the rescue of our two Chinese contractors kidnapped by activists in the old Sede village during the 32 hours between May 18th and 19th, 2014.

Fortunately, our two Chinese colleagues were rescued without physical injury, while unfortunately, unfavorable mental impact is huge and that the police still suffered from physical injury and loss in the operation by attack from some mobs agitated by the outside activists. This kind of serious violation of law and use of violence by no means could be acceptable under any circumstances.

I understand that by proper resolution of this incident, a clear message has been sent to the public and the world that Myanmar government is capable to maintain the social stability and rule of law which is essential to carry out all major investment projects like Letpadaung copper project.

It is also clearly observed that the intention of the small group of activists and extremists is only to create conflict and confrontation as their behavior and request are neither reasonable nor constructive, which is apparently against the wish of the majority of the local community to continue benefit from the Project both in short term and in long run.
