    Soe Lwin Octobre 2013. Mae Sot, Thailand.
    Soe Lwin’s nightmare began when he was 13. It was exactly the morning of April 24, 1994, and he was living with his family in the Launglon Township, Dawei District in Tanintharyi division in Burma. He was arrested and locked up and tortured in the local military intelligence interrogation centre for 45 days. Condemned to 24 years of jail for illegally printing and distributing material contrary to Burma’s press law he became the younger political prisonner in Burma. He was release 15 years after on September 19, 2009.

    He flew Burma afraid of the junta and is now living in Mae Sot, Thailand.
