According to AAPP investigations, (2) children were sentenced the death penalty by martial court but are still facing trial at juvenile court, therefore they have been moved to the ‘facing trial list’. In addition, 1 man and 1 woman were initially sentenced to death, but due to successful appealment they have had their charges changed to life imprisonment.

AAPP verified another (4) persons who were sentenced to death today, therefore there are a total of 76 post-coup death row prisoners as of July 28, 2022.

On July 27 at around 8 am, Junta soldiers and Pyu Saw Htee members fired artillery shells at Kyar Pyit Kan Village in Pauk Township, Magway Region. Consequently, a four and a half year old local named Theint Theint Phyu died instantly from one of the artillery shells while she was playing in her compound. 

On the morning of July 25, the villagers from Hniarlawn Village in Hakha Township, Chin State ran away as the armed wing of the Junta entered the village. A local villager named Salai Mang Lian San was shot in the thigh and died due to severe bleeding.
