Documentation training about human rights abuses in Burma


Martus TrainingDocumentation training about human rights abuses in Burma was held over four days from 17th- 20th July 2012 at the Arakan Human Rights and Development Organisation's office.

That training was led by Aung Myo Thein from Assistant Association for Political Prisoners (AAPP); two directors and four members of AHRDO were present.
