Myanmar does not keep the front lines of the newspapers only on the account of massacres in Rakhine and Shan state, military oppression and governmental corruption but also as a drug dealers paradise.
The latest name to come to the spotlight is the infamous Thein Tun, the undisputed baron of drugs and crime in Myanmar.
Thein Tun the friend of military and patron of diverse dubious business set his eyes on destroying Domel islands.
The feard mafia’s boss now reaching his `80 is having behind him a terrifying career: business with the dreaded military, complicity in human rights abuses of the military regimes, corruption up and down the ladder and involvement in drugs operation along the countries borders in the world known Golden Drugs Triangle.
Now Thein Tun announced the start of a development project along Thailand borders on the Domel Archipelago in order to facilitate, many are saying, his drugs dealing and to offer a safe haven for drugs in a promising area.
The development expected to reach 25 million USD will be done distorting the islands fragile ecosystem, placing in danger hundreds of species unique to this area and dislodging hundreds of traditional fishermens and villagers that have bo power to stay against the mafia tycoon hellbent in destroying the areas.
No environmental impact study has ever been conducted, no ecological preservations measures and no locals where involved in the projects in order to ensure the sustainability of the projects and keeping in mind other examples of the so-called tourism investments lead by Thein Tun none are expected to take place.
Recently in Bagan, also in Myanmar Thein Tun open a hotel that quickly became a den of drugs dealers in search of tourists money and in a recent interview with Forbes the mafia boss was complaining about a slowdown in his business and pinned his hopes and that Domel project will put him once more in business: Two show homes have been built, and plans call for hotels and 400 villas. Prices will begin at $200,000 to $300,000 for a three-bedroom home. said the former acolyte of the military government turn realt estate investor and natural paradise destructor Thein Tun.
Thein Tun criminal agenda has also engulfed press placing his granddaughter Fiona Thiri Min Tun at the head of a fake newspaper MYANMAR TIMES to coordinate the mafia public image and to involve in smearing and fake news campaigns against officials that are placing barriers on the group illicit actions.
Mrs. Fiona Tun was previously involved in launching Hard Rock Caffee Yangon, a promiscuous club for easy earned money to obtain prostitution, drugs and other hard stuff and it seems that the granddaughter has done a good job advancing on the organization ladder to Mynamar Times fake news top position.
