In the daily report released by the Political Prisoners Aid Organization (AAPP), it was reported that 6 more people have died in the past 24 hours in Myanmar.

In the report, the total loss of life was updated to 802, while 4,120 people were detained.

It was stated that there was a detention order for 1,699 people.

The Irrawaddy and Myanmar Now websites reported that the Burmese military had taken control of the town of Mindat in Chin state, which was seized by anti-coup rebel armed groups in early May.

The Burmese army reportedly displaced large numbers of townspeople who supported the rebels, and tens of thousands of civilians reportedly tried to protect themselves by taking refuge in mountainous and wooded areas in bad weather.

It was alleged that the army cut off the water networks across Mindat and shot at those who tried to return to the city to provide water.

MILITARY MANAGEMENT PLANS LIMITING INTERNET ACCESS TO “RELIABLE SITES”

On the other hand, the Belgium-based think tank International Crisis Group has reported that Myanmar’s military administration is trying to restrict internet access to pages that authorities designate as a “trusted list of addresses” in order to silence the opposition in the country.

In the report prepared by the group, it was noted that the military administration has ordered the country’s telephone and internet providers to block access to social media platforms and news sites where anti- coup d’etat are divided.

In the report, it was stated that the military administration is developing a special internal network to control the telephone Internet, so that the use of telephone applications can be limited.

After the February 1 coup, the military administration also banned wireless internet access in order to prevent large-scale protests from being organized.

MILITARY STROKE IN MYANMAR

The Burmese military seized the administration on February 1, after allegations of fraud in the November 8, 2020 elections and rising political tensions in the country.

The military arrested numerous ruling party officials and leaders, including the country’s de facto leader and Foreign Minister Aung San Suu Çii, and declared a state of emergency for a year.
