Dr Tun Aung has been granted several reductions to his sentence, and according to the Myanmar National Human Rights Commission (MNHRC) now has one year and one month left to serve in prison.
“Letter[s] from various chapters of Amnesty International requesting, among others, the immediate release of Dr Tun Aung without conditions were received by the Myanmar National Human Rights Commission. The Commission after proper examination of these letters conveyed them to the authorities in order that the concerns expressed in the letters receive carefully consideration” states the letter received by an AI member, which was signed and sent by Commissioner Secretary Sit Myaing. We are trying to confirm his exact release date.
The MNHRC also asserts that Dr. Tun Aung is receiving regular medical attention while in Insein prison, including specialist medical treatment and that his family can visit him in prison.
