Myanmar’s military govt announces death penalty for treason



The ruling military government in Myanmar, on Tuesday, informed that it will impose the death penalty for offences such as treason and dissent.

The military government made the announcement on Sunday, following a fire on anti-coup protesters that killed 38 people.

It also said that the military would also take charge of Yangon’s court.

However, the death sentence could be reverted by writing an application to Senior General Min Aung Hlaing, chairman of the State Administration Council, within 15 days of the conviction charges.

Reportedly, Martial law was declared in the townships of Yangon, Hlainathaya, Shwepyithar and four others.
