Villagers on trial for resisting relocation

29 February 2012
A trial is underway for villagers who have refused a government order to 
relocate from their homes close to Burma’s capital.
Members of around 20 households now face up to three months in prison, 
having turned down offers of 200,000 kyat ($US235) per family to relocate 
after the order was given in October 2011.
