U Kyaw Win was released.

U Kyaw Win, the former Minister of Planning and Finance of the NLD government was released.


The former political prisoners' association claimed that U Kyaw Win, the former Minister of Planning and Finance under the NLD government, was released from the prison under the military council's pardon today.

He said that U Kyaw Win was the only political prisoner among those released by the military council on Myanmar New Year's Day, while the rest were still imprisoned.

"He is over 75 years old. He was arrested three years ago, and it has been two years since he was arrested there. Thus, it can be considered that he was released with amnesty. Among more than 3,000 people we have released so far, there is only one political prisoner, U Kyaw Win."
