Meth-King Tse Chi Lop: Chinese El Chapo (Part-5)

                 (Tom Allard’s article from the REUTERS on October-14, 2019.) 

MONEY, MONEY: The analysis of Cai’s phones was continuing to provide leads. On them, police say they found the GPS coordinates of the pick-up point in the Andaman Sea where fishing boats laden with Myanmar meth were meeting drug motherships capable of being at sea for weeks. One of the motherships was a Taiwanese trawler called the Shun de Man 66, according to the Taiwanese law enforcement document reviewed by Reuters.

The vessel was already at sea when, in early July 2017, Joshua Joseph Smith walked into a marine broker in the Western Australian capital of Perth and paid $A350,000 (about $265,000 at the time) for the MV Valkoista, a fishing charter boat. Smith, who was in his mid-40s and hailed from the east coast of Australia, inquired about sea sickness tablets. According to local media, he didn’t have a fishing license at the time.

After buying the boat on July 7, Smith set the Valkoista on a course straight from the marina to meet the Shun De Man 66 in the Indian Ocean, an AFP police commander said. After the rendezvous, the Valkoista then sailed to the remote Western Australian port city of Geraldton on July 11, where its crew was seen “unloading a lot of packages” into a van, the commander said.

Battles for Mindat: People Vs Military (Part 1)

            (Based on the Burmese posts from the FACEBOOK in June-July, 2021.) 

Mindat is a scenic hill town in southern Chin state of Myanmar formerly known as Burma. It is near the border between Chin State and Magwe Division and now a battle has been raging there for more than three months since April-24.

That day was the last of the peaceful protest by the local Chin ethnic-Christian people against the dictatorial army of mainly the dominant Buddhist-Burmese. On that day the weeks-long anti-coup protest were quelled by the Burmese soldiers and police shooting at the protesting Chin people indiscriminately.

Initial shootings were done by the town garrison LIB-274 a Light Infantry Battalion of Burmese Army. But the natives from the town and neighboring villages armed themselves with home-made hunting rifles (Tumee-muskets) and double-barrel shot guns and fought back the soldiers armed with automatic assault rifles and machine guns.

I Survived COVID: Fourteen Days of Hell

              (Thein Htun Htun’s article from his FACE BOOK on July 24, 2021.) 

In the afternoons of both July-1 & 2 I worked out one hour each day on my treadmill machine at home with no problems at all. But on July-2 midday I had to go see my doctor at the Han-thar-waddy Hospital for my recurring back-pain.

I was in full PPE there, I washed my hands thoroughly with hand sanitizers, and I took a long shower when I got back home. Then on July-3 I went out to nearby Inya Lake and tried to jog a few laps on the lake-bank for the weather was fine with not a rain in that evening.

I usually jog three or four laps, but that day I was getting really exhausted after just one lap and so I decided to stop running and just walked in the Rangoon University Campus and came back home. On my way back home I noticed my fingers were slightly swollen and I immediately sensed that something was going wrong with me.

Socialists want Harsher Fines on Protesters

                  (Tyrone Clarke’s article from the SKY NEWS AU on July 28, 2021.) 

NSW Labor has called for massive fines for planned anti-lockdown protests in Sydney: Growing reports of a second anti-lockdown rally in Sydney has spurred NSW Labor to demand the Berejiklian government slap protesters with massive fines.

Fines ranging from $5,500 to $20,000 have been pushed by the NSW Labor Opposition for protesters planning a second anti-lockdown rally on the weekend. NSW Shadow Police Minister Walt Secord and Shadow Attorney General Michael Daley have urged Premier Gladys Berejiklian to “throw the book at these idiots” who are planning another protest in Sydney on Saturday.

Thousands took to the streets on Saturday to protest the ongoing lockdown restrictions in reaction to Sydney’s growing COVID-19 Delta outbreak. NSW Police confirmed 60 people who attended last weekend’s rally had been arrested and charged with officers issuing 148 infringement notices.

3,000+ COVID Corpses Today In Rangoon Alone

                  (Based on Burmese posts on the FACEBOOK on July 26-27, 2021.) 

Whole family of 5 died together.

The corpses of COVID victims are horribly overwhelming the crematoriums in Rangoon cemeteries and the ruling military junta is finally dumping the bodies in hastily-dug mass graves on any vacant cemetery grounds available.

Today the government ran MRTV also announced that the Rangoon City has stopped cremating the COVID corpses as the number of deaths reached well over 3,000 a day and the crematoriums are frequently breaking down from the overload due to 24/7 running. And massive fuel costs also are troubling the cash-strapped Military Junta.

Yesterday, large backhoe excavators were seen digging the long-deep trenches as mass graves to bury the COVID victims in Yay-way and Htein-Bin cemeteries on Rangoon outskirts. Government also stops announcing the daily official COVID death numbers due to overwhelming number of deaths in private homes instead of hospitals.

The declared rational behind that news blackout was that without official confirmation of COVID positive test results they will not accept that the home deaths are genuinely COVID-related. Poor people of Burma do not have a choice to die in a hospital for they are forcefully being turned away from the hospitals. Burma under that bastard Min Aung Hlaing is truly becoming hell.

Living Normally with COVID: Singapore Roadmap

           (Singapore Govt opinion post from the STRAITS TIMES on June 24, 2021.) 

Living normally, with Covid-19: Task force ministers Gan Kim Yong, Lawrence Wong and Ong Ye Kung on how Singapore is drawing road map for new normal.

With vaccination, testing, treatment and social responsibility, in the near future, when someone gets Covid-19, our response can be very different from now. We are drawing up a road map to transit to this new normal.

We are continuing with our efforts to control the worrisome Delta variant of Covid-19. Given its high transmissibility, it will be hard to bring infections down to zero. Instead, we are adopting an aggressive ring-fencing strategy - casting a wide net to isolate contacts of infected persons, and testing tens of thousands every day. The aim is to minimise the risk of large clusters forming.

Are Public Health Orders Legally Enforceable?

                 (Staff article from the MORRISSEY LAW on March 30, 2020.) 

Government powers: what makes the government’s COVID orders enforceable? 

While the news is giving us rolling coverage of government-imposed restrictions and closures to prevent the spread of COVID-19, very few have discussed the legality of such orders. 

This article identifies the sources and extraordinary extent of government power to issue the public health orders which have had such a major effect on our lives and businesses.

Organizers of Sydney Freedom Rally 2021 July

      (Fergus Hunter’s article from the SYDNEY MORNING HERALD on July 25, 2021.) 

Joel Jammal
The organisation of an anti-lockdown protest that turned violent in Sydney on Saturday began in fringe online communities teeming with COVID-19 conspiracy theories, anti-Semitism and debunked views on vaccines.

The widely-condemned protest was linked to a “worldwide rally for freedom” and NSW Police said they were not taken by surprise by the event, having monitored plans as they developed in groups on encrypted platform Telegram and spread further on Facebook and Instagram.

Police on Sunday said they had received more than 5500 tip-offs about attendees and identified more than 200 people involved. More than 350 officers policed the event and a dedicated strike force of 22 officers has since been launched to investigate public health order breaches and any other offences.

Great Barrington Declaration: Lockdowns Do Not Work

             (The Declaration from the GBDECLARATION.ORG on October 4, 2020.) 

The Great Barrington Declaration – As infectious disease epidemiologists and public health scientists we have grave concerns about the damaging physical and mental health impacts of the prevailing COVID-19 policies, and recommend an approach we call Focused Protection.

Coming from both the left and right, and around the world, we have devoted our careers to protecting people. Current lockdown policies are producing devastating effects on short and long-term public health.

The results (to name a few) include lower childhood vaccination rates, worsening cardiovascular disease outcomes, fewer cancer screenings and deteriorating mental health – leading to greater excess mortality in years to come, with the working class and younger members of society carrying the heaviest burden. Keeping students out of school is a grave injustice.
