On June 5, Comrade Wai Gyi of the Yesagyo Township People’s Defence Organisation (PDO/Pa-Ka-Fa) stated that the military council is intentionally distributing narcotics in the areas controlled by the revolutionary forces.

“Another thing that has bothered me recently about the revolution is the issue of drugs that are starting to spread in the areas controlled by the revolutionary forces. The military council is purposefully distributing them in the areas controlled by the revolutionary forces.
