14 Jun 2021

On 15 June 2021, Amnesty International urged ASEAN Member States to support calls for the release of those detained in the country as Aung San Suu Kyi stands trial for seven charges and decades in prison. Amnesty also stated that ASEAN must stop shielding the Myanmar military from international pressure and accountability as the country's human rights crisis continues to worsen dramatically.
