Court date rescheduled for Chin pastor in Yesagyo
26 February 2014: The Yesagyo Township Court in Magwe Region informed Rev. Zun Hlei Sum yesterday that his court date has been rescheduled for next week.
The Chin Christian pastor told the Chin Human Rights Organization (CHRO) that he was told about the postponement only when he arrived at the court.
He said: “When I got to the court at 10am this morning as scheduled, they told me that the date has been put off because Khaing Htun, Head of the Yesagyo Township Administration Office, was busy.”
“They didn’t say anything else as to the reason why it was postponed for the second time. So, I went home,” added Sum.
Khaing Htun filed a lawsuit against the Chin pastor after accusing him of constructing a building for a church in Yesagyo town.
He is set to attend a hearing next Wednesday.#
