Myanmar: Open Letter to ASEAN leaders at the ASEAN Summit (28-30 October 2010, Ha Noi) from Amnesty International's Asia-Pacific Directors

, Index number: ASA 16/015/2010

On 7 November Myanmar will hold elections for the first time in two decades. Electoral laws and other broadly-worded regulations effectively deny the people of Myanmar the “three freedoms”, that is, the rights to freedom of expression, peaceful assembly, and association. In this open letter Amnesty International urges the ASEAN leaders to send an unambiguous message to the Myanmar government to uphold human rights, including to release prisoners of conscience and to ensure that all people in Myanmar can enjoy the “three freedoms” throughout the elections period and beyond.
