Myanmar frees 3,000 prisoners

0

YANGON: Myanmar began releasing hundreds of prisoners—including a political detainee and former military intelligence figures—on “humanitarian” grounds, officials said on Tuesday, in the latest large-scale amnesty in the once pariah nation. One prisoner held on political grounds was among the 3,000 to be freed, according to Ye Aung, a representative of the Former Political Prisoners Support Group.
