It is reported that U Maung Soe and U Par Lay, leading members of the National League for Democracy Party, Taung Dwingyi, Magwe' were being taken from their homes, by an unknown group believed to be from the military junta, without explanation.

U Par Lay,who is a secretary of the Party Promotional Committee, Taung Dwingyi NLD, was at home in Chaung Net Village, when he was arrested at 1:00 pm on Sunday 13 January.

At 4:00 pm, on the same day, U Maung Soe, the Deputy Chair of Taung Dwingyi NLD was also taken from his home,in Taung Pyin, Taung Dwingyi.

They were taken away in a van, which had a star sign on the number plate. The 6 unknown people who took the NLD Members away, were accompanied by members of the local police.

Both gentlemen were being hand cuffed (with hands behind them) and blind-folded, in front of the family members, before being driven away.

The family members asked the unknown group to identify themselves, explain the reasons for the abduction and also where the NLD Members are being taken to. The lack of any answer has left the families extremely worried and concerned for the safety of the two gentlemen.
