Another NLD member captured and tortured to the death overnight

March 8 - March 9
Possible Violations:
  • Police Brutality
  • Crimes Against Humanity

U Zaw Myat Linn, Superintendent of Su vocational training school from Shwe Pyi Thar township, Yangon was arrested regardless of his trial to run away through the fence, on the night of 8th of March by the military and police forces. And just on 9th of March afternoon, words send out to family to pick up the dead body via Shwe Pyi Thar Police station. He is the second person to be arrested and tortured to death overnight.

While the military's officialy cause of death was "injury sustained while trying to jump out the window when they came to arrest him", the brutal wounds and the state of the corpse clearly indicated severe torture. Some people are saying his face was injected with hot water and acid although this is not confirmed. He was found with his internal organs and teeth missing.
