by Z. Brang Seng

Burma, now known as Myanmar, is ruled by one of the longest standing military regimes of modern times. The government is very secretive, especially about their operation of arrests and their treatment of prisoners throughout the country.

Life in Burma Military Prisons presents a first hand account of the author in three military prisons. He was incarcerated for a total of eight and a half years. Such a prison story was never available to the media of the outside world.

Released prisoners seldom talk about their experiences. Those who are willing to talk are intimidated and threatened. Nang Zing La is one of the first prisoners to come out boldly and lay out the case in graphic terms.


An extraordinary lawyer who sought justice when there was no justice, Nang Zing La did not evade arrest because he believed in manís inherent obligation to be a responsible citizen, even when freedom is restricted. He chose, instead, to be a good man rather than a good citizen of a military regime. But in the attempt to be a good man, he was judged a bad citizen by his oppressors, and, in the end, had to suffer the unjust consequences.
