Daily Briefing in Relation to the Military Coup 

Updated 16 June 2022   

According to AAPP documentation, at least (617) houses and buildings have been sealed off by Junta between February 2021 and May 2022.  

Since the February 1, 2021 military coup and the start of the Spring Revolution, a total of  (1958) people, pro-democracy activists and other civilians were killed, in the military crackdown of the pro-democracy movement. AAPP compiled and documented (4) fallen heroes today. These (4) fallen heroes from Pakokku Township in Magway Region and Khin-U Township in Sagaing Region were killed on previous days, but documented today. This is the number verified by AAPP. The actual number of fatalities is likely much higher. We will continue to update accordingly.              

As of June 16, 2022, a total of (11081) people are currently under detention. (1144) people have been sentenced in person, of them 73 have been sentenced to death (incl. 2 children). (120) people have been sentenced in absentia, of them 41 sentenced to death. This makes a total of (114) who have been sentenced to death. (21) people have been released on bail and (3037) people have already been released.     

On June 11, the armed wing of the junta raided Kyoe Kan Village in Khin-U Township (Sagaing Region) and burned down houses. They then tortured and killed two people, including Chan Thar,  in a village west of Kyoe Kan Village. Both were from Indaing Gyi Village, Khin-U Township and were taken as human shields.

Starting June 8, the armed wing of the junta has been attacking Pakokku Township (Magway Region) and in Taung Palu Village, many locals got tortured, including 65-year old Soe Han. His injuries were too serious for him to be able to run away and when his son came to rescue him on June 11, he passed away within five minutes of being found.

AAPP will continue to inform on verified daily arrests, charges, sentences and fatalities in relation to the attempted coup, and update the lists with details of these alleged offenses.
