AAPP (2001) A Glimpse to Political Prisoners and Prison Conditions in Burma
We, Assistance Association for Political Prisoners (Burma), have been reporting the situation of political prisoners of the prisons around Burma. Many democracy and human rights activists have been arrested, tortured and imprisoned for their peaceful activities since the 1988 military coup. Most of them were given long prison terms and have faced violation of their human rights by the Military Intelligence (MI) and prison authorities in their everyday life. In this paper, we, former political prisoners, present a summary of their horrible condition in prisons.
