Daw Nyo Aye, Sittwe-based chairperson of Arakan Women's Network, who was charged under section 505(b) relating to sedition, will be produced in the court on 18 September.

Nyo Aye was arrested by the police on 15 August for attending the Sittwe Rice Killing Day program (on 13 August) led by the student’s union at Sittwe union office, said her family members.

She was produced in Sittwe township court today but no trial took place and sent her back to the prison.

“Although she appeared in the court, the trial was rescheduled. There was no trial on Tuesday. She was sent back to Sittwe prison hurriedly,” said a person close to Nyo Aye.

After her arrest from the Arakan Women's Network office, the concerned police chief prosecuted her. After arrest, she was sent to Sittwe jail.

Under section 505(b), she may earn two years in prison, fine in cash or both. On 29 August, she was produced in court for the first time.
