Daw Nyo Aye, a Rakhine women's rights activist and chairperson of Arakan Women's Network, was rushed to
Sittwe general hospital after her
health deteriorated during the court procedures.
A person close to the lady informed that she was sent
to the hospital as her blood
pressure went too high. He added that she was undergoing some medical tests there.
It may be mentioned that Nyo Aye was brought to Sittwe township court on 18 September and later the legal officials allowed her to be shifted to the hospital with deteriorated health condition.
The lady was not feeling well for some days as she had to face mosquito bites in Sittwe prison.
Her family is worried about her health as she is not allowed to pursue usual medications in the prison.
They are also not allowed to see her by the junta authorities.
On 15 August, Nyo Aye was arrested by the police personnel from the office of Arakan Women's Network at Migan ward of Sittwe.
Her family members alleged that she was arrested after attending the 56th Sittwe Rice Killing Day ceremony on 13 August, which was organised by Sittwe Student’s Union.
She was later charged under section 505(b) by number one police station chief. The section 505(b) may invite two years of imprisonment or a fine (or even both) to her.
Nyo Aye was first produced in the court on 29 August. She appeared in the court once again on 12 September. Today’s one was her third appearance in the court.
