State Peace and Development Council (SPDC) officials’ overhaul of staff at a prison on the Irrawaddy delta in Burma following a demonstration there last year has perpetuated the abuse of prisoners that first occurred following the initial crackdown on protesters. Demanding basic rights, prisoners demonstrated  outside their cells at Myaung Mya Prison on the evening of August 18, 2003.

This report documents the events leading to the overhaul, and the ongoing abuse of prisoners at the prison.
