Since the February 1, 2021, military coup and the emergence of the Spring Revolution, a total of (2,734) people, including pro-democracy activists and other civilians, have been killed through military crackdowns following pro-democracy movements.

Since the coup, a total of (13,495) people are currently under detention, (2,057) of whom are serving sentences. There are a total of (100) post-coup death row prisoners as of January 13, 2023. (121) people have been sentenced in absentia, of whom (42) have been sentenced to death. This makes a total of (142) people who have been sentenced to death. (24) people have been released on bail and (3,731) people have already been released. These are the numbers verified by AAPP. The actual numbers are likely much higher. We will continue to update accordingly.

According to information gathered today, on January 12 at 10 a.m., junta troops from the 416 Infantry Battalion indiscriminately fired heavy weaponry into Indaw Township, Sagaing Region. As a result of an exploding shell, Naing Win, a farmer who was planting beans in a field near the road surrounding Indaw Lay Lake, was hit by the shell in his thigh and bled to death. Naing Win’s wife was also injured and is receiving medical treatment at Indaw Hospital.

In addition, on January 6, a joint column of 150 armed forces, including troops from the 368 Light Infantry Battalion based in Paungbyin Township and Pyu Saw Htee personnel, attacked Tel Pin Village and Shan Kone Village in Kanbalu Township, Sagaing Region. Three civilians, who ran into the junta’s column while fleeing, were arrested as hostages by the column. Those arrested civilians were Khin Maung Tun, aka Kyet Taw, from Shan Kone Village; and Kyaw Soe Moe, aka Bo Bo, and San Myint Aung, aka Kyet Gaung, from Tel Pin Village. They were burnt to death. Their bodies were found on January 10 and 11.
