Accidents such as the landslide that killed more than 100 people in Myanmar are caused by a disregard for the rule of law, according to Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi.
"As far as we understand, it was the fifth similar incident this year," Suu Kyi said during a radio interview on Thursday.
These were Suu Kyi’s first comments on the disaster, where rescuers recovered 114 bodies before giving up the search.
Hpakant is at the heart of the jade mining region and produces some of the world's highest quality jade. But workers, many migrants from other parts of the country, operate in perilous conditions for little pay.
Suu Kyi’s National League for Democracy has called for stricter safety measures and more government oversight in the wake of the disaster, Reuters reported.

Dozens of protesters took to the streets in Chicago's Loop during rush hour Wednesday calling for "justice for Laquan" after video of the teen's fatal 2014 shooting was released Tuesday.
Demonstrators marched down State Street and at one point blocked traffic near State and Randolph streets. They were heard chanting "the whole damn system is guilty."
Several protests have been planned in Chicago, including a number of demonstrations scheduled to take place on Black Friday, following the release of video showing the shooting death of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald.
A Chicago police officer has been charged with murder in the shooting. Dash-cam video of the incident shows McDonald, who police say was armed with a knife, walking away from police officers at the scene before being shot. In the video of the shooting, McDonald's body appears to jerk repeatedly from additional gunshots while he’s on the ground.
That other Thanksgiving tradition — congested highways and jammed airports — is getting underway with gas prices low and terrorism fears high.
An estimated 46.9 million Americans are expected to take a car, plane, bus or train at least 50 miles from home over the long holiday weekend, according to the motoring organization AAA. That would be an increase of more than 300,000 people over last year, and the most travelers since 2007.
Among the reasons given for the increase: an improving economy and the cheapest gasoline for this time of year since 2008.
Anyone trekking to a major airport should factor in 50 extra minutes on the road, according to the traffic date company INRIX — and that's just getting to the airport, never mind getting through security.
Though there have been no changes to the nation's terror alert status, the recent attacks in Paris, West Africa and elsewhere prompted the State Department to warn American travelers about the risks overseas.

President Barack Obama said Wednesday there is no specific intelligence indicating a terror "plot on the homeland" and tried to reassure Americans to go ahead with their Thanksgiving plans.
"I want the American people to know that we are taking every possible step to keep our homeland safe," Obama said in a statement after meeting with his national security advisers on the eve of Thanksgiving.
Obama said the U.S. is stepping up pressure on ISIS and doing everything to prevent Paris-style attacks at home and abroad.
"Since 9/11, we've taken extraordinary measures to improve our homeland security," he added. "And that's something we should all be thankful for."
The president said "in the event of a specific, credible threat, the public will be informed."
