Soe Lwin was arrested in 1994 aged just 14 years old when he was caught handing out anti-regime pamphlets in Rangoon along with 8 colleagues - one of whom was only 13 years old and died during interrogation. He was sentenced to 24 years and spent 15 and a half years in prison before being released under amnesty in September 2009. He fled Burma and now lives in exile on the Thai-Burma border.
Zaw Lwin, a teacher and cellmate of Soe Lwin in Moulmein prison, was arrested in January 2000 and sentenced to 21 years in prison. He is still detained in Moulmein prison.
