Students Involved in Peaceful Demonstrations Sent to Hard Labour Camp


3rd October 2007

Mandalay: 50 of the detained university students, inclusive of those reading medicine, were sentenced to 5 years in prison with hard labour, and they have been sent to Kabaw Valley prison camps, said a mother of one of the students.

Earlier in the week, there have been rumours that the students will be released. However, the relevant authorities ordered the students to be tried immediately and sent to prison, an insider told DVB.

DVB is working to compile the details of the 50 students, and the names of the judges involved in the sentencing.
