Burmese Service Thailand Stringer interviewed one of the education staffers of Taungdwingyi Township and a teacher on complaints about Assistant Township Education Officer U Ye Myint's wrong doing.
U Ye Myint abuses his position to bully his subordinates whenever he goes on school inspection trips around that area. The complaints include asking the local staffers to provide gasoline for his motorbike, using abusive language and demanding female teachers to accompany him for overnight school inspection trip. One teacher told VOA that U Ye Myint would ask them to massage him at night during those trips.
Although the victims haved filed complaints to the authorities since 2002 and there was a departmental enquiry, no action has been taken so far.
Currently, about 20 Education staffers in Taungdwingyi who have suffered the abuse plan to file a complaint again. This petition has also been signed by 60 witnesses.
