AAPP (2007) The Situation of Prisons in Burma

People in Burma have to live their lives without any security as a result of lawlessness. They have to live in a situation under which they can be arrested at any time and jailed for a long sentence, or even die during interrogation in police stations and interrogation camps. We at the AAPP believe that there will be no law and order as long as the SPDC is manipulating the most important power pillars of the country—the legislative, judicial and administrative power—and issuing directives and orders that to be approved as law. This paper examines the deplorable prison conditions in Burma, drawing attention to a wide range of issues including torture, extrajudicial killings, and health conditions in Burma’s prisons.
