An Announcement from the Asian Human Rights Commission

ASIA: Weekly Roundup, Episode 44

Burma is the focus of the 44th episode of AHRC TV’s Weekly Roundup.

In this episode, AHRC TV talks to Mr. Kyaw Swar Swe, Director, Myanmar
Institute for Democracy, Mr. Tun Hlaing, a Burmese lawyer, and Mr. Min
Lwin Oo, a rights defender.


The programme includes reports on the 10-year prison sentence for
Burmese human rights defender Mr. Ko Htin Kyaw and expectations ahead
of the second country report of the Parliamentary Committee for Rule
of Law, headed by Aung San Suu Kyi.

The thaw in Burma, following decades of military dictatorship, raised
hope that respect for human rights and the rule of law will follow.
The professionals interviewed and the stories covered in this episode
indicate where Burma stands vis-à-vis these expectations.
