Free Political Prisoners
Despite some welcome political change in Burma, including the release of high profile political prisoners, hundreds of political prisoners remain in jail. They are kept in inhumane conditions, and the government of Burma officially denies the existence of those political prisoners.
The international community must not forget those political prisoners still left behind in Burma’s jails.
