Sai Lin Kan :

If Chinese Government has a long term plan to stay in Burma and investing in Burma and then the Chinese Government must give-up Irrawaddy Myitsone Dam Project because it’s toxic project for the relationship between the Chinese Government and the Burmese peoples. Also, the Chinese Government must think about the Burmese-Chinese peoples in Burma. Anti-Chinese Government movement in Burma will affect their lives in Burma.

The Chinese Government must study about the history of the Irrawaddy River closely. The Irrawaddy River is very important for the country and the Burmese peoples. The Irrawaddy River was one of the most sacred and important rivers to all Burmese ethnics in Burma history like Hindus’ sacred Ganges River in India.

I believed the contract between former Gen Than Shwe regime and the Chinese Government must have involved bribery.
How unfair distribution of electricity from the Myitsone Dam Project (China 90% and Burma 10%) contract was signed without question by the Than Shwe regime?

Than Shwe regime was the most corrupted Government in Burma history.
Without bribery, the Myitsone Dam Project China 90% and Burma10% won’t happen in the first place. Than Shwe was not dumb, but he wills sale everything the country have if he has benefited from that. There must be corrupted in this contract.
If the Government found the corruption in Myitsone Dam Project contract and then the contract must be declared as illegal and cannot be honored the contract.

However, Burmese Government has to silence even if there was bribery involved when the contract was signed between China and Burma because Burma was heavily relying on China and Russia in the UN Security Council. Burma was unfairly treated by the UN and the UN OHCHR. The Chinese Government was big brother to the Burmese Government. The Chinese Government protects the Burma from the UN, the UN OHCHR and other pro-Islam organization.

Myitsone Dam Project is very complicated and need to sort out smoothly and accepted by both China and Burmese peoples. If the Chinese Government didn’t back –off and want to go ahead regardless and then the contract should be amended to 50% - 50% distribution instead of 90% - 10%.
