Khin Khin Kyaw

HRD, Lawyer

Khin Khin Kyaw is a human rights lawyer and a member of a legal team representing more than 50 detained student protesters who participated in protests in Letpadan to oppose Myanmar’s National Education Law.


Political reforms introduced in 2011 brought the release of more than 1000 political prisoners, including many human rights defenders. Today, many formerly imprisoned HRDs face a number of restrictions to their work and risk future persecution. Student activists were not allowed to return to study at their universities, and the Ministry of Home Affairs has refused to issue passports to former political prisoners and prominent HRDs.
