Daily Briefing in Relation to the Military Coup

Updated 13 November 2023

Since the February 1, 2021 coup, a total of (4,182) people, including pro-democracy activists and civilians have been killed by the junta and pro-military groups during the Spring Revolution. In addition to the total fatality figure, AAPP has documented around (500) deceased persons whose names are unknown and still need to be verified.

Since the coup, a total of (25,402) people have been arrested by the junta in relation to its seizure of power, (19,675) are currently in detention, (8,043) of whom are serving sentences.

There are a total of (120) post-coup death row prisoners as of November 13, 2023. (119) people have been sentenced in absentia, of whom (43) have been sentenced to death. This makes a total of (163) people who have been sentenced to death. (5,727) 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 monitoring by the Documentation and Research Department of AAPP, in recent weeks, junta forces have engaged in clashes with EROs and PDFs across the country. The junta forces used excessive force, deploying fighter planes and artillery weapons to retaliate by attacking non-military target civilian areas. As a result, civilians have suffered deaths and casualties, forcing tens of thousands to flee for safety.

Furthermore, junta forces have initiated offensive operations into areas without any clashes, setting fire to villages and employing various weaponry. Villages have been raided, with local civilians taken hostage for use as human shields. The locals have been subjected to torture and killing, indicating clear violations of war crimes and crimes against humanity by the junta.

In addition, amid the escalating military situation since the 1027 Military Operation, the junta imposed martial law in eight townships in northern Shan State on November 12. This brings the total number of townships under martial law to 54. 

Furthermore, on the morning of November 13, junta forces resumed clashes with the Arakan Army in Rakhine State after an almost year-long ceasefire, forcing civilians in Rakhine State to flee for safety.

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.
