Burma Country Profile
Interactive Prison Map by Free Burma VJ
Burma is home to 43 prisons and around 100 labour camps. Conditions in these jails are notoriously poor - inmates suffer regular physical and psychological abuse from officials, while medicine is scant and overcrowding common. The majority of political prisoners are held in Rangoon's Insein prison, although many are sent to remote jails hundreds of miles from their families where they are forced to battle extreme weather conditions and malaria.
