Today, State Counsellor, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and President, U Win Myint, were each sentenced to four years imprisonment under Section 25 of the Natural Disaster Management Law and Section 505 (b) of the Penal Code. Both have been detained since February 1. Zabu Thiri Township judge U Maung Maung Lwin handed down the sentence at a Private Court set up in Nay Pyi Taw. The lawsuits used were Section 25 of the Natural Disaster Management Law and Section 505 (b) of the Penal Code, each giving 2 years prison terms. 

On December 4 at around 11 pm, a 12-year-old called Banyar Han, was arrested as a hostage in Satone-Gway Kone Village (Ywar Ma) in Myothit Township, Magway Region when Junta soldiers did not find his father. In addition to this, two locals living in the same village, named Nyan Tun and Win Hlaing, were arrested. Nyan Tun and Win Hlaing were public campaigners for an NLD victory in the run-up to the November election.
