Today I learned more about the arrest & torture of Hlan Phyo Aung, a protester whose hand and legs were shot while in custody. Denied medical treatment, he is now facing the loss of his sight and leg. His abuse must end and emergency medical treatment must begin immediately. https://t.co/49aMR91hnI

The #Myanmar junta’s sham trial against State Counsellor Suu Kyi continues, w/ her reportedly looking “unwell.” This junta is fooling no one in its ongoing, absurdist, criminal putsch. #FreeMyanmar #WhatsHappeningInMyanmar https://t.co/DuHizOoT5m

Absolutely harrowing knowing that two young children were arrested alongside the director of Myanmar's national program on immunization before the Feb. 1 coup. Dr. Htar Htar Lin is one of the key leaders in the CDM and a high-priority target for the junta. https://t.co/VFzRA1ttur

Mass deaths from starvation, disease and exposure could occur in Kayah State after many of the 100,000 forced to flee into forests from junta bombs are now cut off from food, water and medicine by the junta. The international community must act. My full statement below. https://t.co/69fxZHRMN7

#Bangladesh relocated nearly 20,000 Rohingya refugees to the remote Bhasan Char island without adequate health care, livelihoods & protection, says @hrw. Expert assessments key ahead of monsoon.

Callous statements by #Malaysian Home Minister Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin. “This is our country. Why do they [UNHCR] want to enter our immigration?" Govt should urgently allow UNHCR access to IDCs across the country. It has been more than a year. https://t.co/HxdKrAAnJ3

This is a welcome step forward by the @NUGMyanmar towards the #Rohingya, and something will help our common cause in ending the military dictatorship. But this policy is far from perfect, and there is much left to clarify. (1/8)
