MYANMAR: Free Former Child Soldier - ONLINE ACTION

Amnesty International, UK, August 10 2018.

Aung Ko Htwe was arrested and charged under Section 505(b) of Myanmar’s Penal code – a vague law which restricts free speech.

Laws like this have been used to jail people just for speaking out against the government, and activists are at risk as long as these laws remain in place.
