Dethroned Miss Myanmar: Organisers list her alleged lies

The organisers of Miss Asia Pacific World Super Talent 2014 have responded to dethroned Myanmar beauty queen May Myat Noe's statement during her recent press conference. 

In her statement she made at a press conference on Sep 2, Noe, whose full name is May Myat Noe That Htet Aung, said she was forced to undergo a breast enhancement procedure which she had not agreed to, and accused the pageant's organisers in Myanmar of falsifying her age from 16 to 18.

The organisers sent out a press release on Sep 5, to "clarify the truth" and make objections and corrections to the reports which have become "an international issue". 

The committee compiled a list stating the alleged lies under the title, 'Lies made by Miss Aung,' to refute her statements and reveal their side of the story, which entertainment site, allkpop, also reported.

Some of the "lies" that were listed were that Noe had insisted that she took a commercial film without being paid but it was found that, "she earned profits of about 20 million (S$24,476) or 30 million won."

In response to Noe's statement regarding a forced plastic surgery, they wrote, "...she had returned to her country with the crown from the hospital and had lied that she was forced to take that operation even though there are statements of out-patients treatment and consent letter of operation of her and her mother."

The press release was accompanied by photos of Noe allegedly in the hospital, recovering from surgery.

Further to their statement, the organisers also wrote that not only had she lied about her undergoing surgery but she also lied about the committee requesting her to perform sexual favors. No further explanation was given regarding the matter.

The committee also sent Noe's detailed schedule from August 19, the day Noe and her mother arrived at Incheon Airport, to September 2, the day Noe gave her statement through a news conference.

It included details on the type and cost of meals provided to Noe, as well as allowances provided when Noe and her mother wanted to buy doughnuts and lingerie.

Lastly, they wrote that the reasons for disqualifying her was because of her "continuous" and "absurd unilateral acts such as 'her returning to her country if her mother cannot stay with her for the 3 months'," and "her bad manners like ignoring the Committee."
