Amnesty International remains concerned by the State Law and Order Restoration Council (SLORC, Myanmar's militry government), use of both short-term detention and long sentences of imprisonment as methods to repress peaceful political activities in the country. There are over 1,200 political prisoners currently held throughout the country. Ninety-three of these are prisoners of conscience and hundreds more are possible prisoners of concience, about whom AI is seeking further information.
