Former Lt-Gen Soe Htut has been sentenced to five years imprisonment following a court hearing on the case.
He faced charges of exploiting his power during his tenure as the Union Minister for Home Affairs. The allegations included the improper granting of passports through the Green Channel, acceptance of bribery, and failure to supervise acts that violated financial regulations, particularly in implementing the staff welfare fund.
The individuals involved in these cases will face action in civil court, and those associated with the Myanmar Police Force will be subject to police discipline.
