Statement Update on November 17 Political Prisoner Releases
November 21, 2022
The November 17, 2022, junta announcement that a total of 5774 prisoners would be released in accordance with Code of Criminal Procedure Section 401, Sub-Section (1), has continued to be monitored. Through this, AAPP has been able to confirm 402 political prisoners released across 19 prisons in the country.
Up until 3.00pm of today (November 21, 2022), AAPP has documented and identified 161 released political prisoners.
The junta only announced the names of a handful of released political prisoners, exposing the utter lack of transparency regarding the released persons, and leading to delays in documenting the list of released political prisoners and confirming their names.
Release data is still being verified, we will update accordingly when further information is received. If anyone would like to share information about the prison releases, contact:
