Arrested poet Khant Min Htet untraceable


New Delhi (Mizzima) – The whereabouts of poet Khant Min Htet, also the layout designer of Rangoon based Ahlinkar Wutyee Journal, picked up by the police about two weeks ago from his home, is still not known, his family said.

The Special Branch (SB) of the police arrested him on October 22 from his home in Thaketa Township. Four days after his arrest, a four-member SB team came to his home again and searched his house. They seized some CDs from his home and a computer hard disk from his journal office.

"They just said that they are taking him for questioning but we still do not know his whereabouts. The family is terribly worried," father of Khant Min Htet and Padauk Pwint Thit Editor-in-Chief Maung Sein Ni told Mizzima.

His family felt his arrest has something to do with politics but the authorities did not disclose anything about it, his family said.

The Thailand based 'Association for Assistance to Political Prisoners-Burma' (AAPP-B) said that at least 41 political activists including members of the Cyclone Nargis volunteer relief workers group 'Lin Let Kye' were arrested in Rangoon last month.
