During demonstrations, which took place on 21st and 22nd August, a number of Burmese democratic activists were arrested, including student leaders of the "1988 Generation". The arrested people and other participants to the demonstration applied their right for a peaceful protest against economic measures imposed by the Government of Burma on the long-time suffering population of Burma.

The Czech Republic calls on the Government of Burma for an immediate release of the arrested democratic activists and all political prisoners, including Aung San Suu Kyi.

The Czech Republic strongly condemns the arrest of the Burmese democratic activists and supports their efforts leading to the restoration of democracy and political dialogue.
