At the toll gate near Sittaung Bridge between Mon State and Bago Division, the military council is inspecting all passing vehicles in detail with large X-ray machines. They are checking in detail because the weapons from Karen State are coming to Bagu and Yangon. Because the Military Council is doing what it wants without looking ahead, the flow of goods is slowing down and all the tourists are suffering.
It’s the same on Yangon Mandalay Expressway. Due to the large number of checkpoints, it is no longer possible to go as fast as before on the expressway. At those gates, the soldiers of the military council were asking for money. The military group is attacking the people in various ways.
