As of the end of January, there are 159 political prisoners incarcerated in Burma, with 213 activists currently awaiting trial for political actions. The Peaceful Assembly and Peaceful Procession Act continues to be used in an attempt to silence those critical of the current regime.

The month also saw the reconstituting of the Committee for Scrutinizing the Remaining Political Prisoners to The Prisoners of Conscience Affairs Committee. AAPP has been left out of the committee without any official reason.
