The President of Myanmar, U Thein Sein, has decreed an amnesty which, according to first reports, concerns a number of prisoners of conscience, including in particular the artist Zarganar whose release has been confirmed.
This is a step forward. We now wish to see all political prisoners and prisoners of conscience released, so as the amplitude of this release to be in line with the democratisation and national reconciliation process sought for so long, and the continuation and amplification of which we await more than ever.
We continue to monitor the situation in Myanmar with very particular attention. We hope to witness the confirmation and continuation of positive changes. In this way Myanmar will at last be able to get back the position it deserves in the international community.
