Myanmar: Imprisoned for Telling the Truth about Human Rights: Freedom of Expression on Trial in Insein Prison

, Índice: ASA 16/011/2005

A group of political prisoners in Insein Prison were given additional sentences in 1996, while still imprisoned. The authorities sentenced them for attempting to send information about human rights violations to the United Nations and circulating news and writing in prison. More than 20 persons were given additional prison terms. Amnesty International considers them to be prisoners of conscience, imprisoned for their peaceful exercise of the right to freedom of expression, and calls for their immediate and unconditional release from detention.
