A former Burmese political prisoner holds up a set of prison shackles smuggled out of Burma that were used on political dissidents jailed in Burma's notorious prisons. Political prisoners are routinely tortured and often kept shackled and in solitary confinement whilst jailed. Each leg is kept seperated by a long iron bar whilst the prisoner must hold the chain in his hand at all times.
