Myanmar: Ill-health of six prisoners of conscience: Medical Action.

, Index number: ASA 16/009/2002

Amnesty International is concerned at reports that the health of six prisoners - Dr Aye Tha Aung, U Thar Ban, Dr Zaw Min, Dr Than Nyein, U Win Tin and Ko Aung Htun - has deteriorated and that they have not been provided with adequate medical treatment. The organization also considers them to be prisoners of conscience, imprisoned for their peaceful expression of the right to freedom of expression, opinion and assembly, and is calling on authorities to immediately and unconditionally release them from detention.
