On the highways all over the country, the military has established security, opened checkpoints, and is extorting money from the people. It is said that drivers are asked for at least 5,000 kyats per vehicle, not only domestic cars, but also passenger cars and trucks.
Cars that refused to pay easily at the gates were also subjected to more checks on the grounds of security. If the money is not given out as requested, the car will be parked on the side of the road and the people will be asked to get out, and ask for the covid injection record sheet, registration, and household census sheet. They check things like car license and driver’s license one by one.
Because the dogs of war are begging illegally, the cost of transporting goods and transportation is increasing. Those costs are borne by the people in the end.
