Enforcing the Law

Maung Swan Yi

May 5th, 2010

 

In Burmese, I heard frequently of the phrase “Enforcing the Law”. Still for so many years, the Burmese generals are ruling the country lawlessly and breaking the law. And such lawless persons say such phrase.

While they are saying “Disciplined Democracy”, the Burmese generals with their age beyond retirement, are still ruling the country without any disciplines. Even though, there’s no one above the law except the generals so that they can sit there forever without interference.

Today is 5th of May 2010. On today’s New York Times newspaper, the headlines says the suspect who tried to time-bomb the Central Square on 1st of May was arrested on 4th of May. And the detailed are reported with 4 pages inside.
