Monthly Updates

December 2022

A junta-controlled court in Myanmar concluded the final outstanding show trial of State Counsellor Daw Aung San Suu Kyi on 29 December, sentencing her to seven years in prison on corruption charges. Aung San Suu Kyi was already serving a 26-year sentence on numerous other charges. The trials were universally condemned as politically motivated and illegitimate outside the military junta.

The military junta carried out 14 unannounced and closed-door executions of imprisoned pro-democracy leaders and civilians between late July and mid-August. Capital punishment was last practiced in the country in 1987.
