A civilian defense group attacked the Educational Department for Hsipaw Township with a homemade bomb after senior management pressured staff who walked off the job to join the protest movement to return to their posts.
A member of the Hsipaw Civilian Protection Group told SHAN the deputy manager was working with the junta’s State Administration Council (SAC), providing information to the armed forces about employees who joined the Civil Disobedience Movement.
“We gave him a warning!” the source said.
The group released a statement on April 26 it will attack all informants working with the military regime. The building was targeted the following day at about 1pm.
SAC announced all universities, colleges and schools must reopen on May 5.
