Nearly 70 political prisoners detained by the junta in Pyapon Prison have not been allowed to see their families, according to Pyapon residents.
“All of them do not have access to visiting hours. If we bring some food for prisoners, staff also check it. Moreover, they gave the stuff to the prisoners, only after taking some of the good things,” a local told Ayeyarwaddy Times
Although family members of political prisoners in Pyapon send food to Pyapon Prison every Monday to Saturday from 8 am to 11 am and from 2 pm to 4 pm, they are worried about the prisoners’ health as they are not allowed to see them.
