There are a total of (120) post-coup death row prisoners as of November 16, 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 the data collected by the AAPP, from January to November 16, 2023, (278) women, (1,297) men and (2) transgender people; (1,577) in total, have been given prison sentences under specious charges by courts subservient to the junta and still detained in prisons across the country. Among the (1,577) imprisoned, (45) people have been serving long-term additional sentences under specious charges such as the Penal Code and Counter-Terrorism Law.

On November 15, Dagon Myothit (South) Township Court sentenced labor leader Thet Hnin Aung to serve another 7 years in prison with hard labor under Section 52 (a) of the Counter-Terrorism Law. He was arrested by junta forces in June 2021 and was sentenced to serve 2 years in prison under Section 17 (1) of the Unlawful Associations Act in December 2022. Then, although he was released after serving his time in prison in June 2023, he was rearrested by the junta forces and resentenced.

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.
