Myanmar: Release supporters of former child soldier

, Index number: ASA 16/1972/2020

Nay Zar Tun, Khin Cho Naing and Myint Zaw have been sentenced to between 12 and 18 months in prison for peacefully protesting politically motivated charges against Nay Zar Tun’s younger brother, former child soldier Aung Ko Htwe. Speaking out against injustice is not a crime and they should have never been arrested solely for exercising their rights to freedoms of expression and peaceful assembly. All three activists should be immediately and unconditionally released.
