, Index number: ASA 16/1164/2019

Aung Ko Htwe, former child soldier, was released from prison a few months early on 6 September 2019, likely due to good behaviour. Arrested in August 2017 after giving a media interview about being forcibly recruited into the military, he was sentenced to two and a half years in prison.
