In February 2013, Kyone Kyi Camp Commander Paing Soe Hkaing demanded forced labour from villagers in Ler Doh Township, Nyaunglebin District. Kyone Kyi Camp Commander Paing Soe Hkaing is commander of Tatmadaw Light Infantry Battalion (LIB) #349.
The KHRG community member reported that residents of eight villages in Kyauk Kyi Township were requested to build fences in the Kyone Kyi camp area, and each village was given 25 cubits of land for its inhabitants to fence. According to the community member, there are 70 households in T--- village, 150 households in S--- village, 40 households in U--- village, 120 households in V--- village, 70 households in W--- village, 70 households in R--- village and 80 households in X--- village. Each village was allowed to determine how many villagers it would send to meet Paing Soe Hkaing’s demands. Villagers in S--- and T--- villages selected a member from each household to participate so that they could finish their work quickly, while only 20 villagers total went from each of the other six villages.
