With former Lt. Gen. Moe Myint Tun being sentenced to life in prison, has the NSA dealt with the corruption problem clearly? . .
In early October, former Lt. Gen. Moe Myint Tun and Brigadier General Yan Naung Soe, a member of the State Planning and Administration Council, were sentenced to life imprisonment equivalent to 20 years by a military court.
According to a statement from NASK, Lieutenant General (former) Moe Myint Tun, member of the State Management Council, chairman of the Myanmar Investment Commission, Chairman of the Foreign Exchange Supervisory Committee. While serving as chairman of the Central Committee for Trade and Commodity Flows, the country’s foreign exchange policy, He said it was because he acted against important commodity policies and other economic policies for personal gain.

It has become a topic of discussion among the people whether they can effectively deal with the law, regardless of whether they choose high or small positions, and work to reduce and eliminate the problem of corruption that is rooted in the country.
In this situation and time, the last two governments under the Thein Sein government and the NLD government have been criticized for corruption. The Mya Kyun Tha project on Kama Aye Pagoda Road, which was stopped due to loss of public funds, etc., is surprisingly good to see signs of resumption.

He was questioned whether there was corruption during U Thein Sein’s government. The Mya Kyun Tha project on Yangon’s Kama Aye Pagoda Road, which was criticized due to the loss of public funds, had to be ordered to stop when U Thein Sein’s government was about to step down.
However, in July 2023, I saw an advertisement announcing the rental of shops in Mya Gyuntha on a social networking site under the name of Inya Palace Centre.
The ad said, ‘A large commercial center is currently under construction in Mya Gyun Tha Compound on Kama Aye Pagoda Road in Myangone Township, and will be completed and opened by the end of 2023.

On one side of the road, we found plots of land, and behind those plots, we also found a building that would store materials for the construction site.
Regarding the resumption of construction works that were prevented from stopping due to the current ground conditions, when I asked the municipal department responsible for the Mya Kyun Tha Amusement Park, they replied that they would have to go to the Yangon City Municipal Development Committee’s Parks and Stadiums Department to inquire.
