Hundreds of Chinese Nationals will face life imprisonment, charged of illegal logging, Myanmar.
Myanmar made legal action and proper sanction to a group of Chinese nationals, arrested and sentenced for life upon illegal logging.
Chinese illegal loggers arrested during an operation by military to give disciplinary action to illegal loggers in the country.
Under the law of 1963, calling for jail terms of 10 years to life for anyone who steals or otherwise misuses or abuses public property, illegal loggers were sentenced.
A two Chinese minor involved in illegal logging, given 10 year jail terms and a certain woman other 15 years charged for drug possession.
In statement of Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang, saying , “Since these Chinese nationals were arrested by Myanmar at the beginning of this year, China has repeatedly raised representation with Myanmar from various channels”.
“China has requested the Myanmar side to consider the actual situation of those loggers and deal with the matter in a lawful, reasonable and sensible way,” he added.
Myanmar accused Chinese for damaging its resources, including their environment and local livelihood through some of its mining projects and infrastructure, thus, gives a gap to their political and economic relationship.
Critics believed illegal loggers often make deals with warlords who run in remote regions close to the border.
The sentences as too severe and that it had made solemn presentations with Myanmar over the matter, Chinese Embassy in Myanmar told state-run Beijing Times.
Since Myanmar is preserving its natural resources, slow economic growth has contributed to the preservation of much of its environment and ecosystems.
Since the 1995 forestry law, heavy logging in Myanmar has seriously reduced forest acreage and wildlife habitat.
