Phyoe Phyoe Aung to face additional charges

January 12, 2016


Phyoe Phyoe Aung, a student protestor who is being hospitalised at Yangon General Hospital, was charged for additional crimes under Section 18 of the Peaceful Assembly and Procession Law by the Lanmadaw Township Police Force on Monday. He was also charged with additional counts under Section 447 and Section 18 of the same law by the Kamaryut Township Police Force.

The student activist is a member of the All Burma Federation of Student Unions and is being tried for participating in the protest against the National Education Law in November 2014 in Yangon.

“We marched from Lanmadaw to downtown. There were about 150 of us, including Ko Nandar Sitt Aung. 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,” said Min Thwe Thit.
