The All Burma Students’ Democratic Front (ABSDF) will soon be making public the findings of a commission investigating the massacre committed by the group’s members.
During the press conference of ABSDF at the Myanmar Peace Centre in Yangon on January 3, ABSDF General Secretary Sanny said the commission’s report will be released in May.
“ABSDF formed a commission in 2011to investigate the massacre in northern Myanmar. We are contacting other people for the fact-finding to be completed in May,” he said.
Than Ge, chairman of ABSDF (Central), said the loss of lives and properties cannot be avoided in any revolutionary movement.
Survivors of the 1992 massacre in Kachin State have called for an investigation and for perpetrators to be brought to justice. Over 100 members of ABSDF (Northern Burma) were accused of spying for the military intelligence and were subsequently arrested. Fifteen were executed and 19 died of torture.
