Listen to the news
Soldiers in rural Myanmar twisted the skin of a young man with pliers and kicked him in the chest until he stopped breathing. And then they insulted the young man by abusing him about his mother and family. The news agency interviewed 28 such people, finding that more than 9,000 were still under investigation and testimony in recent months.
The army, known as Tatmado and the police, has killed more than 1,200 people since February. Prisoners said most of the torture took place in military complexes. The prisoners ranged from a 16-year-old girl to monks from different parts of the country and from different races. They are subjected to torture such as kneeling on rocks, electric shocks, hitting, and rolling on their knees.
Were systematically detained
The army harassed a monk and forced Kappala to walk. The accounts officer was electrocuted and hit on the head until an artist fell unconscious. These individuals were detained in a very systematic manner across the country. The Myanmar military has kidnapped thousands of people and deliberately attacked medical personnel.
The monks were shot and beaten with rifles
The 31-year-old monk was shot as he fled the army, handcuffed and beaten with sticks and rifles. Security forces kicked him in the head, chest and back. He photographed the nun and other demonstrators with gasoline bottles, creating evidence of criminal intent. The soldiers forced the monk to dress like a normal person and sent him to a torture center.
Very dirty weather in prisons
An inmate said he was kept in a prison without a toilet. Prisoners had to urinate in a corner and defecate in plastic bags. In these prisons, hidden parts of prisoners’ clothes were attacked. Many prisoners were awakened by pouring ice water overnight and given electric shocks.
