Myanmar junta says treason, other offenses punishable by death ( full on dictatorship)

In an apparent attempt to quell growing protests against the Feb. 1 coup, the military junta said it would impose harsh sentences, including lengthy prison terms or even death, for offenses including treason and dissent, obstructing the military or civil service, spreading false news and incitement of fear, according to the entire martial law order published in a state newspaper.

The offenses are among 23 categories of crimes that the order says are subject to court-martial with no appeals allowed for decisions or convictions. However, it said an application to reverse a death sentence could be made to Senior Gen. Min Aung Hlaing, chairman of the State Administration Council, within 15 days of a conviction.

Martial law was declared in two Yangon townships, Hlaingthaya and the neighboring township of Shwepyithar, on Sunday, the first such declarations in the city since the military coup, followed by orders in four more townships in Yangon on Monday.
