Detainees in GTI are being moved out of the compound, eyewitnesses said. It is not known where they are being taken to.

Eyewitnesses told DVB that on the 3rd of October, at about 11pm, 8 army trucks were seen leaving the compound. Sources close to the guard troops said that the detainees taken away in the trucks were monks and students awaiting trial for participating in the peaceful demonstrations last month. They added that majority were monks.

Another batch was moved during the night on the 5th of October.

A source who did not want to be named told DVB that these detainees have been given prison sentences and were being transferred out to serve their terms.
