BBC on Burma

Even Burmese private donors are asking why the authorities seem so concerned to obstruct their progress when the need is so obvious.

Htar Swe, head of the BBC Burmese service, says there are a myriad of reasons to explain the junta's attitude. "Among the benefactors could be journalists, and there could be non-genuine benefactors who want to collect information. They want to stop information coming out of the region. "The juntas want to be seen as if they can control the country. All along they have said that the country would disintegrate if the military was not taking care of it. They need to be able to show people they can do that. They are paranoid of losing control," she said.
