Chit Khaing, chairman of the Eden Company and MAB Bank, a large crony, was arrested by the military council and charged with corruption. Chit Khaing has had close ties to military leaders since the previous junta. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. Before him, Khin Shwe and his son, a crony, were arrested. Many cronies are now living outside the country for fear of the military council.
The crony community, which has been able to prosper under successive governments, including the previous junta, is now in the throes of Min Aung Hlaing. If they are not satisfied, they can be arrested at any time. No class or community is safe in Burma.
