In total 100 sentenced to death, in person and absentia. The exact identities and total figure remains to be verified, but we will continue to confirm the recently released.     

The wife and daughter of Regional MP Thet Paing Soe of Ngapudaw Township, Ayeyarwady Region, Nan Yu Thein and 10 months old Su Myat Paing, Tin Oo, his uncle, and his 13 years old daughter Lone Chit, as well as their neighbors Kyaw Swar Win and A Nge Ma were all arrested as hostages by the junta on April 23 when Thet Paing Soe himself could not be found. They had been all living in Ka Nyin Chaung Village, Ngapudaw Township. 

In the early morning of April 23, junta soldiers raided Ywar Thar Village in Sagaing Region’s Khin-U Township by pretending to be of the People’s Defense Forces (PDF). They killed Aung Naing Soe by shooting him in the back while he was on his way home. Additionally, Nyein Kyaw, who was arrested as a hostage, was killed after being tortured.
