The Karen National Liberation Army’s Commander-in-Chief Gen. Mutu Say Poe and two other central committee members were dismissed on Wednesday by the Karen National Union (KNU) for allegedly violating KNU protocol.
Ethnic Karen leaders Mutu Say Poe, David Taw and Roger Khin were dismissed for visiting Pa-an last week where they set up a liaison office in collusion with the Burmese government, according to KNU sources.
Current commander at KNLA Brigade 5, Baw Kyaw Heh, is expected to take over the post of commander-in-chief, said the sources.
