Burma: Bo Kyi, Joint-Secretary of the Assistance Association for Political Prisoners-Burma (3 min40 EN)

Despite repeated calls by the international community, including the United
Nations, the EU, ASEAN and the Burmese democracy movement, the “new
government” established after the recent flawed electoral process continues to
refuse to release almost 2,000 political prisoners held in Burmese prisons. Their
immediate and unconditional release is one of the key benchmarks necessary for
genuine national reconciliation to take place.
