Arms handover deadline extended

The junta on Tuesday has extended the deadline for those possessing war weapons including explosives and grenade launchers to hand them to authorities to June 25 from today.

Those failing to hand over the weapons within the period could face a jail term ranging between two and 20 years, the Centre for Maintaining Peace and Order announced in an order late on Tuesday. 

The order does not cover people charged with firearms offences before May 29 whose cases still stand.
