Along with the seizure came the issuance of arrest warrants for 11 members of Soros' organizations who are believed to have given "financial support to the civil disobedience movement against the military junta."
The new government of Myanmar says it plans to take legal action against the Open Society Foundations, which allegedly violated "restrictions on the activities of such organizations."
For one, Soros' Open Society Foundations did not receive approval from Myanmar authorities to deposit $5 million into their Myanmar bank accounts. The Open Society Foundations also illegally withdrew $1.4 million from these same bank accounts.
"Military-aligned groups including the Union Solidarity and Development Party have accused Soros of manipulating Myanmar's politics by supporting civil society organizations in the country," reads a website from Thailand that tracks political developments in Myanmar.
Myanmar also recently banned the use of both Facebook and Twitter in the country after it was revealed that the Big Tech platforms were using hidden algorithms to promote anti-military protests following the military takeover.
