A group of “hackers” attacked several pages linked to the Burmese Army in protest at the coup by the military while the disconnection to the network continued throughout the country for the fourth consecutive night.

Several government portals, including the Central Bank, the public television MRTV or the True News agency in charge of disseminating the Army’s information, are inactive this Thursday after hackers attacked them last night.

The group “Hackers Myanmar” claimed responsibility for the computer attacks on its Facebook page and assured that its objective is the profiles linked to the Tatmadaw -as the Army is known in the country- while requesting the help of other users to join forces with the objective of taking down the official portals.

“We are fighting for justice in Burma,” the group points out, inciting to continue with the civil disobedience movement in the streets of the country in rejection of the military coup.
