Myanmar Junta Charges and Arrests Striking Doctors and Senior Medical Staff

The Myanmar military regime has charged 19 government doctors, including a director of the health ministry, several medical superintendents and specialists across the country, with incitement for their support of the civil disobedience movement (CDM) and for backing the committee representing elected lawmakers.

The doctors are from government hospitals in Naypyitaw, Yangon, Mandalay, Sagaing and Tanintharyi regions and Shan and Kachin states.

The junta blames the doctors for inciting government healthcare workers to take part in the CDM. It also said that the doctors are supporting the Committee Representing Pyidaungsu Hluattaw (CRPH), which has been declared an unlawful association by the military regime.
