Soe Lwin, former political prisoner from Burma

Soe Lwin was arrested aged just 14 for distributing pro-democracy pamphlets in Rangoon, Burma in 1994. He was sentenced to 24 years in prison and was jailed for 15 years and eight months in three different prisons until he was released on 18th September 2009. He fled Burma and now lives a precarious life in exile as an unregistered refugee in Mae Sot on the Thai-Burma border.
