Daily Briefing in Relation to the Military Coup

Date – 10 June 2024

Since the 1 February 2021 coup, a total of (5,243) 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 (1,800) deceased persons whose names are unknown and still need to be verified.

Since the coup, a total of (26,842) people have been arrested by the junta in relation to its seizure of power, (20,583) are currently in detention, (9,186) of whom are serving sentences. 

There are a total of (124) post-coup death row prisoners as of 10 June 2024. (119) people have been sentenced in absentia, of whom (43) have been sentenced to death. This makes a total of (167) people who have been sentenced to death. (6,259) 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 monitoring of AAPP’s Documentation and Research Department, last week, across the country, the junta forces, who have been blatantly committing crimes against humanity and war crimes, apprehended and tortured civilians in various ways before killing them en masse and carrying out airstrikes and opening fire with heavy weaponry. The junta forces carried out airstrikes in Tha Pyay Thar Village in Sagaing Township, Ma Taw Village in Mingin Township, Sagaing Region, and Kan Myint Kone Village in Myaing Township, Magway Region. They opened fire with heavy weaponry into Sin Gaung Village in Thandwe Township, and apprehended, tortured, and killed civilians in Byaing Hpyu Village in Sittwe Town, Rakhine State. In total, these incidents resulted in nearly 200 deaths.

There have been many damages and losses due to the junta forces attacking civilian areas, religious buildings, hospitals, and clinics. These are all considered non-military targets. On June 6, junta forces carried out airstrikes at a monastery in Khan Sat Kone (East) Village, Natogyi Township, Mandalay Region, and on June 4, at a clinic and the surrounding area in Khin Shey Taung Village, Pauk Township, Magway Region, without any clashes occurring. This resulted in civilians getting injured, along with the destruction of the monastery and the clinic.

AAPP will continue to provide updates on verified daily arrests, charges, sentences, and fatalities in relation to the attempted coup, and update the lists with details of these alleged offenses.
