Four democracy activists have been put to death by Myanmar’s military government, according to state media on July 25, 2022. They were accused of directing and organising “violent and inhuman accomplice acts of terrorist killings”. The junta overthrew the democratically elected government in a coup in February 2021. The four executed were: democracy figure Kyaw Min Yu, better known as Ko Jimmy, ex-lawmaker Phyo Zeya Thaw, who was a close ally of ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi, Hla Myo Aung and Aung Thura Zaw. The report did not provide details of the executions, which were the nation’s first since the late 1980s.
