Myanmar: Prisoners of conscience/fear of torture

, Index number: ASA 16/015/2000

Four men: U Thaung Sein; U Soe; U Par Lay; and U Pu were arrested on 24 June for attempting to help a political prisoner. All four are local leaders of the National League for Democracy. Amnesty International believes that the four are prisoners of conscience, arrested solely for their membership of a non-violent political party and their work in defence of human rights.
