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
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.
