NAING, Chit JSON

U Chit Naing est le ministre du gouvernement de l’Union qui dirige le cabinet du gouvernement (2). Il a été ministre de l’information entre le 2 février 2021 et le 1er août 2021. Il a été nommé président du Conseil d’administration de l’État (SAC), qui s’est emparé des pouvoirs législatif, exécutif et judiciaire de l’État le 2 février 2021. En tant que ministre de l’information, il était responsable des médias d’État (MWD, MRTV, les journaux Myanmar Alin, Kyemon et Global New Light of Myanmar, ainsi que l’agence de presse Myanmar News Agency (MNA) et le Myanmar Digital News), et donc de la diffusion et de la publication des informations officielles. Lorsqu’il était ministre de l’information, les journaux étaient remplis d’articles favorables à l’armée, et il est donc responsable de la propagande de la junte et de la propagation de la désinformation par l’intermédiaire des médias d’État, lesquels n’informent pas avec exactitude. Il est directement responsable des décisions qui ont conduit à la répression exercée contre les médias du Myanmar/de la Birmanie. Cela inclut des directives ordonnant aux médias indépendants de ne pas utiliser les termes “coup d’État”, “régime militaire” et “junte”, et se traduisant par l’interdiction de cinq médias locaux dans le pays. Dans le cadre de ses fonctions précédentes et de son poste actuel de membre du gouvernement, ses actions, ses politiques et ses activités portent atteinte à la démocratie et à l’état de droit au Myanmar/en Birmanie.

U Chit Naing has been the Minister for Information since 2 Feb 2021. He was appointed by the Chairman of the State Administrative Council (SAC) that took over the legislative, executive and judicial powers of the State as of 2 Feb 2021. As Minister for Information, he is responsible for state-owned media (MWD, MRTV, Myanmar Alin, Kyemon and Global New Light of Myanmar newspapers and the Myanmar News Agency (MNA) and Myanmar Digital News), and thus for broadcast and publication of official news. Since he took over the ministry, the newspapers have been filled with pro-military articles and he is therefore responsible for junta propaganda and spreading disinformation through state media that are not reporting accurately. He is directly responsible for decisions that led to the crackdown on Myanmar media. This includes directives, which ordered independent media not to use the words “coup”, “military regime” and “junta”, and which has seen five local news outlets banned in the country. He is therefore responsible for undermining democracy in Myanmar/Burma by limiting press freedom and access of information both on-line and off-line. In his statements, he publicly supported the military coup. As Minister of information, appointed by the Chairman of the SAC, U Chit Naing is responsible for actions and policies undermining democracy and the rule of law in Myanmar/Burma, as well as actions that threaten the peace, security and stability of Myanmar/Burma.

Responsible for state-owned media (MWD, MRTV, Myanmar Alin, Kyemon and Global New Light of Myanmar newspapers and the Myanmar News Agency (MNA) and Myanmar Digital News.
