In August, AAPP recorded the sentencing of 28 individuals for politically related activities, as well as the release of one political prisoner and the torture of five people.

By the end of August, 84 political prisoners were incarcerated in Burma, while approximately 122 individuals have been charged for politically motivated actions and await trial. The number of political prisoners has continued to rise since the beginning of this year, with the use of Section 18 of the Peaceful Assembly and Peaceful Procession Act accounting for many of the newly incarcerated individuals.
