June 21, 2021

HURFOM, Mawlamyine: A weekly update by the Human Rights Foundation of Monland (HURFOM) on the situation on the ground. Summary data includes Mon State, Karen State, and the northern Tanintharyi Region.

Weekly Analysis
Human rights violations are ongoing in HURFOM target areas as the junta continues to act with a disregard for the rule of law and democratic principles. According to HURFOM fieldworkers, the individual killed this week was shot and died on the spot by an unknown gunman. Those tortured were beaten during an arrest amid a strike. Of those injured, a villager was shot by security troops.

Brave, young protesters are moving forward with demonstrations despite the brutal crackdowns that often follow by the regime. Some protesters were injured during a strike which was violently dispersed by the junta in Thayet-Chaung, and Yebyu in Dawei.

There were 20 civilians abducted by the SAC in Kanet-Thiri village, Thayet Chaung Township in Dawei on 13 June. Midnight raids, arbitrary arrests against those associated with the anti-coup movement are ongoing. Arrest warrants were issued in Mudon Township, Mon State.

This week, the Ministry of Home Affairs began investigating political parties. Dr. Bhone Wai Oo, NLD’s party representative from Mudon, Mon State, was arrested.

All of these incidents speak to the continued state of silence and repression in Myanmar because of the junta’s violence. HURFOM will continue to monitor and release updates.
