According to media in Myanmar, 5000 protesters who were arrested and put in jail for venting over February’s coup will be released.
The junta leader of Myanmar, army general Min Aung Hlaing stated that about 5,636 people that were detained will be released due to humanitarian reasons.
This development comes about after the Association of South-East Asian Nations only permitted a non-political representative from Myanmar in place of the leader of the country.
The reason had been that the military government had done little to ease the upheaval in the country and had shown no consideration for human lives with the way they had treated oppositions.
Following the removal of Aung Sun Suu Kyi by a military junta, more than 1000 people were murdered and the number of people that were arrested and sentenced was above 7000.
The regard for civilians’ lives has been described as blatantly worrying.
According to BBC News the military leader however explains on television concerning releasing the prisoners that whatever had been done was to enhance stability and democracy.
He explained that his administration had a five agenda plan that would be seeing to bringing back democracy; initially, the military administration had released about two thousand prisoners in July.
The military leader has been under sanctions for his influence on military attacks on civilians, especially minority groups.
When he first came in power, he insisted on justifying ousting the civilian government by maintaining that all these was to ensure a disciplined democracy.
He assured that the military will be letting go of the administration once his goal has come to fruition.
