Myanmar Coup news: Myanmar army first imprisoned and arrested all the top leaders. Forcibly took command of the country. After this, there was no backlash against the people who were demonstrating in support of democracy. More than 260 protesters have been killed. Hundreds are injured or are in jail. Even after seeing the dictatorship of the army, many policemen also left the job and fled to India. But all is well in the eyes of the army.
The Junta has justified the coup last month and the action taken against those who oppose it. However, street protests against the coup continue. At a press conference in the capital Napita, the army presented a video of a former political aide of ousted national leader Aung San Suu Kyi. It claimed that he personally handed him a large amount of cash and gold. The army called it corruption. His lawyers have previously denied such allegations.
A large number of protesters demonstrated on Tuesday in such a way as to avoid conflict with the authorities, who do not hesitate to use deadly force against the protesters. Some marches were organized in the country’s largest city of Yangon before sunrise. Some protesters put signboards or other materials on the streets as a sign of protest. In a press conference, the army presented video of home-made weapons and street clashes that the protesters were violent and its efforts to stop them were justified.
More than 250 people have been killed
The Independent Assistance Association for Political Prisoners has confirmed that 261 protesters have been killed in the army’s action so far. However, they say that it is difficult to find the actual number and this number can increase very much. Accordingly, 2682 people have been arrested after the coup, while there are 2302 people who have been kept in custody and they can be arrested soon.
