Summary of the current Situation

March saw the Scrutinizing Committee face continued difficulties when working with the government. Ongoing attempts to gain clear information, access to political prisoners and discuss the remaining political prisoner situation have yet to gain results.There still remain 30 political prisoners from the end of 2013 as well as numerous arrests and detentions of political activists at the start of the New Year. In March, 21 activists were arrested, 54 were indicted, and four sentenced. A majority of these individuals face charges or were charged under section 18. At the end of March approximately 170 activists are still awaiting trial.

MONTH IN REVIEW

The Scrutinising Committee for the Remaining Political Prisoners (SCRPP) has been refused a request to visit four prisoners in Myitkyina prison. The SCRPP wished to gain access to gather the facts of each case, but will now be unable to do so. SCRPP Chairman U Soe Thein has also agreed to attend a future meeting of the group, after failing to attend the meeting at the beginning of this month. His continued cooperation is needed to ensure the release of the remaining 30 political prisoners.
(23 March 2014 – Eleven)/(19 March 2014 – Myanma Freedom Daily)

In a press conference this month, the 88 Generation Peace and Open Society urged the government to aid in the healing of former political prisoners. Records of the SCRPP show around 1000 individuals who may be eligible for government assistance. Despite this, governmental cooperation has been limited and it has been organisations such as AAPP, 88 Generation Peace and Open Society and the Former Political Prisoners Society that have contributed to compiling the list of former political prisoners and offering assistance to individuals and their families. This comes several days after the Human Rights Defenders and Promoters (HRDP) also called for the government to assist in the rehabilitation of victims of the past regime. The Myanmar National Human Right Commission, backed by the Burmese Government, said they welcome such activism, however it should “be in accordance with existing laws.” However, existing laws, such as Article 18, continues to swell the number of activists detained within Burma.
