Daily Briefing in Relation to the Military Coup

Updated 2 October 2021

As of October 2, (1154) people are now confirmed killed by this junta coup. AAPP compiled and documented (7) fallen heroes today. These (7) fallen heroes from Pyinmana in Nay Pyi Taw Territory, Khin-u Township in Sagaing Region and Dawei Township in Tanitharyi Region were killed on previous days and documented today. This is the number verified by AAPP. The actual number of fatalities is likely much higher. We will continue adding as and when.

As of October 2, a total of (7045) people are currently under detention. (339) people have been sentenced in person, of them 26 have been sentenced to death (incl. 2 children). 1989 are evading arrest warrants. 118 people have been sentenced in absentia, of them 39 sentenced to death in absentia. In total 65 sentenced to death, in person and absentia. We are also continuing to verify the recently released detainees.

On October 1, Yan Paing, of the People’s Defence Force (PDF) of Nay Pyi Taw, living in Pyinmana in Nay Pyi Taw Territory, died from severe injuries consistent with torture while being treated at the 1000 beds Hospital in Nay Pyi Taw. Yan Paing was tortured in interrogation by the terrorist junta who arrested him at a home in Pyinmana where he was evading arrest. The bones of his hands and legs were broken, he was deafened in one ear and he had injuries all over his body.

In the early morning of October 1, five villagers including a five years old child, living in Pyin Htaung Village in Sagaing Region’s Khin-u Township, were shot dead in a field. This happened while they were running away in fear when terrorist junta soldiers raided that village. They were a five-year old named Myo Thandar Hlaing, and Tun Si, Aung Oo, Pu Cho and Pu.
