Villagers Relocated from Myitsone Dam Area Appeal to Return Home

March 14, 2012

On March 14, 252 villagers from Tanghpre village submitted an appeal letter to Kachin State Minister and Government administration, requesting to return to their village due to the inhabitability of the relocation areas in Aung Myin Tha village. They also reported the issues they are currently facing relating to the construction of the Myitsone Dam, including a case in which the District Administrator summoned 22 villagers who returned to their village following the suspension of Myitsone Dam Project. Authorities had previously promised relocated villagers that they could continue living in their villages until the area is finally flooded. Upon summoning the villagers, the District Administrator told them to dismantle their houses with their own means no later than March 17, and that they are prohibited to return to the areas for which compensation had already been given. The District Administrator also asked them to sign a memorandum that states they would not live and do any business in Tangphre area and that they understood they would be prosecuted according to exciting law if they disobeyed the order.
