Burma’s Supreme Court has dismissed a lawsuit filed by the husband of an ethnic Kachin woman whom he claims was abducted by Burmese troops last year.
A relative of Sumlut Roi Ja told DVB in February that she was last seen on the morning following her abduction standing in front of a Burmese army outpost.
“We looked at the Montbo hill through binoculars and saw her outside the [Burmese army] base – she looked jittery as the soldiers were touching her inappropriately one after another,” said the relative.
“After that, we saw her being taken inside [the base] and she hasn’t emerged since. She is assumed dead – we held a prayer for her on 20 December [last year].”
