Aimstar’s Joseph Apologizes for Falsely Accusing Myanmar Media

Joseph, a top official from Aimstar Network, took on the press during a media conference on September 20 in Mandalay, slamming the media for being unknowledgeable. He said that journalists from Myanmar are writing news just for living and their news are not credible.

Myanmar press was outraged for his vilification towards the journalists and prepared to take legal action against Joseph if he does not apologize for what he had said. Myanmar Journalist Network gathered signatures of journalists around the country for three days and sent them to Myanmar Press Council and prepared to sue. On the Facebook page of Myanmar Journalist Network, there were over hundred signatures of journalists who support to sue Aimstar. On October 16, Joseph held a press conference at Western Park Restaurant and made an apology in the presence of officials from Myanmar News Media Council and Myanmar Journalist Network.

Aimstar is a Multi-Level Marketing “MLM” business with head office operating in Yangon and subsidiaries in Mandalay, Shwebo, Myitkyina, Kalay and Mawlamyine. At the moment, there are over 100 companies doing MLM business in Myanmar. Many of them, including Aimstar have been accused of unscrupulous business practices.
