Soe Naing

Interview with Min Zaw
Ko Soe Naing was born in Bassein. He passed the matriculation exam in
Bassein State High school. His father was U Kyaw Yi, who served part-time
as an Irrawaddy Division BSPP council member. Ko Soe Naing had a pale
complexion, long hair, and was quite short.
In 1988, he was studying at RIT as a fifth-year student, majoring in Mining
Engineering. As far as I know, he was not interested in politics or social
activities. He was very quiet and somewhat unsociable.
At first, I didn’t know how he was shot on the 13th of March, 1988.
I learned that afterwards. He was injured in the large intestine and had to
undergo four operations. He died on the 5th of May, 1988.
Ko Phone Maw died on the spot and was cremated on the 15th of
March, 1988.
