Phyoe Phyoe Aung Faces Additional Charges

Updated: Apr 2, 2019


Phyoe Phyoe Aung, a student protestor who is being hospitalized at Yangon General Hospital, was charged on Monday for additional crimes under Section 18 of the Peaceful Assembly and Procession Law by the Lanmadaw Township Police Force. He was also charged with accounts under Section 447 and Section 18 of the same law by the Kamaryut Township Police Force. Phyoe Phyoe Aung is a member of the All Burma Federation of Student Unions and is being tried for participating in the November 2014 protest against the National Education Law that occurred in Yangon. “We marched from Lanmadaw to downtown. There were about 150 of us, including Ko Nandar Sitt Aung," Min Thwe Thit said. "The Lanmadaw Township police charged us under section 18. The Kamaryut Township police charged us under sections 18 and 447 because we passed through Kamaryut and broke into Yangon University.”
