Since the Myanmar military seized power in a February 1 coup to overthrow elected leader Aung San Suu Kyi, security the forces detained more more than 1000 people, hundreds at demonstrations and many more in raids – often at night.

In addition to Suu Kyi and his cabinet, the detainees include doctors and teachers, actors and singers and other civilians who participated in daily protests, according to figures from the Association for the Assistance of Political Prisoners (AAPP). .

The Burmese junta did not respond to requests for comment on the detentions, but threatened to take action against those accused of destabilizing the country. The military seized power after its allegations of fraud were dismissed in the November 8 election.
