On November 11, 2023, Lt. Gen. Soe Htut, aged 62, the former Home Affairs Minister, was sentenced by a military court on corruption charges. Soe Htut abused his rank and authority by directing subordinates to issue passports to companies upon request, accepting bribes, and failing to ensure the adherence to financial rules and regulations for the staff welfare fund of the Home Affairs Ministry. Soe Htut had reportedly been under investigation intermittently in the capital, Naypyitaw, since September 2023.

In 2020, he was appointed as the Home Affairs Minister, a position controlled by the military under the 2008 Constitution, and later became the Deputy Prime Minister after the February 2021 coup. He then assumed the less influential position of Union Government Office Minister until he lost that job and nominally resumed his military duties in late September. He was also removed from the State Administration Council in a reshuffle in September.
