Date – 25 March 2024

Since the 1 February 2021 coup, a total of (4,783) 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 (1,700) deceased persons whose names are unknown and still need to be verified.

Since the coup, a total of (26,442) people have been arrested by the junta in relation to its seizure of power, (20,270) are currently in detention, (8,873) of whom are serving sentences.

There are a total of (123) post-coup death row prisoners as of 25 March 2024. (119) people have been sentenced in absentia, of whom (43) have been sentenced to death. This makes a total of (166) people who have been sentenced to death. (6,172) 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, during the intensifying clashes between junta forces and the Arakan Army in Rakhine State, the junta cut off the flow of commodities and medicine, creating blockades on the roads preventing people from accessing medical treatment. Consequently, people faced difficulties, and shortages of medicine in hospitals increased, leading to loss of life. Moreover, the junta has been inciting ethnic and religious conflict in Rakhine State. The junta has also instructed express and travel agencies not to sell tickets to individuals carrying ID cards with “11/” in ID number, which signifies people from Rakhine State, and that they must deny them travel.

The junta has also restricted the ability of civilians who do not hold ID cards from Rakhine State, and who are eligible for military conscription, from freely traveling. They issued instructions to only sell tickets to them if they have approval letters from their respective townships. Additionally, members of the administration teams under the command of the junta in Yangon Region, Mandalay Region, Ayeyarwady Region, and Nay Pyi Taw have been collecting fees from civilians, allegedly to support those chosen to attend military training. Some individuals selected for the conscription have consequently, attempted suicide.

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.
