Myanmar: In Myanmar, action against celebrities supporting the ongoing protests the ruling junta has intensified. Here these artisans have given their support in support of the ongoing protests against the coup.
In this context, the junta government has published a list of wanted people in the government press, and a warning has been given about their work.
The names of actors, actresses, musicians have been entered in the list published on Sunday and Monday in the Myanmar newspaper Global New Light.
According to the media report, if convicted, this section can be punished with imprisonment for up to three years. A list of 20 people has been published on the newspaper page along with their photo, hometown and Facebook address.
A case was also registered against several actors and directors in the list in February. Still, action against pro-performance celebrities gained momentum last week when the army-controlled Myawaddi TV aired the list.
The demonstrations have been taking place in Myanmar since the coup of Aung San Suu Kyi’s elected government on February 1, but after the violent clashes between security forces and protesters in the last one week, the army has taken this strict step.
According to the Assistance Association for -Political Prisoners, an organization that monitors casualties and arrests, 564 protesters have died in Myanmar so far.
