Ba Thein Tin, Thakin

   (1914- )
   Member of the Communist Party of Burma (CPB) from its inception in 1939, he went underground with the mainstream faction, led by Thakin Than Tun, in March 1948. Described by one observer as "de facto leader of the CPB" from the mid-1960s, he did not formally become chairman of the party until the assassination of Thakin Zin in 1975. Following the mutiny of ethnic minority troops and the CPB's breakup in April 1989, he fled from the CPB's former headquarters at Panghsang, Shan State, into China, where he remains in retirement.
