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 February 1 to 8, 2024, (7) women and (21) men; (28) people in total, were killed by the junta across the country, with (5) children who were under the age of 18. Among (28) deceased, Sagaing Region records the highest number of fatalities with (16) victims and (18) people killed after being detained by the junta, recording the highest number of deaths.

Yin Moe who was sentenced to serve 6 years in prison under two charges of Section 505 A of the Penal Code by Obo Prison Court, was unaware of her kidney disease in prison until it was too late and the Prison Department cited security concerns as the reason they could not provide her with full-time medical treatment in a hospital outside the prison while she was suffering. As a result, she died from kidney disease at Mandalay Hospital on February 4, 2024. Although she was transferred to Myingyan Prison in July 2022, her poor health led to her being returned to Mandalay Prison.

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.
