without question”. Soldiers from Burmese army are too fearful to voice for theirright, life and to do the right things. They are exploited and manipulated by abunch of generals and they are no more than killing machines to protect theircling into power.5. Everyone shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman, or degradingtreatment or punishment. Abuses of military regime committed on politicaldissidents, prisoners, forced labours, forced porter, forced sex slaves anddenying medical treatments to political prisoners who need urgent medicaltreatment are well documented.6. In Burma, not everyone is recognized as a person before the law asmilitary regime never treated dissidents as a person. They never hesitate to killanyone who opposes them.7. The military regime maintained complete control over the legal system andremained unbound by any legislation or constitutional provision for a fair trial,due process of law or any other rights. Military regime is always above the lawand laws are what they said and what they wanted to do.8. In Burma, military government denies basic rights to due process of law, afair and public trial in political cases. No trials of political prisoners wereopen to the public, and in many cases reported details of the case were not evenavailable to the defendant’s family; such as the reason for arrest, sentencing orlocation of the person detained. Frequently the detainee is not informed underwhich section or article he or she is being detained. In addition, detaineesrarely have access to legal counsel or the opportunity to obtain release on bail.The accused may be held for lengthy periods of time without any communication.Trials for political detainees are normally held in courtrooms on prisoncompounds, in a “special court”, and defendants are given little chance to speak,are ignored when they do make statements and certainly are not permitted toproperly defend themselves. Even after being charged, political prisoners arestill denied the right to proper legal counsel.9. The military maintains an extensive network of Military Intelligence (MI),informers, police, militias such as Swan-Arr-Shin and Union Solidarity andDevelopment Association (USDA) members, ready to arrest anyone suspected ofholding or expressing anti-government opinions in Burma. Laws have beenestablished that criminalize freedom of thought, expression, association, assemblyand movement, thus legitimizing these arbitrary arrests and continued toarbitrarily detain people across Burma for associating with opposition groups.These types of detentions occurred commonly and in most cases individuals allegedof such illegal association were detained, interrogated and many were tortured,without warrant, charge or trial. In addition, thousands of democracy activistsgot to flee from Burma as more and more worsen situation of their lives asmilitary put pressure on them persistently making them unable to stay inside thecountry.10.
