On November 20, George Maung Nge, 17 years old, living in Loikaw Township, Kayah State, was shot dead whilst under detention at Loikaw Myoma Police Station. The soldiers and police of the armed wing of the junta began arguing among themselves when they shot George Maung Nge unprovoked. He was arrested in April under Section 505(a) of the Penal Code.
