A Burmese prisoner assistance group has issued a report it says details the abuse and torture of those held in Burma's prisons.
The Thai-based Assistance Association for Political Prisoners - Burma interviewed 35 former political prisoners who reported physical, psychological and sexual abuse while in custody.
The 124-page report also details what it says are deliberately poor prison conditions and purposeful medical negligence, designed to cause suffering.
A spokesman for the association, Ko Tate, says they have also identified the members of Burma's military government who are responsible for torture.
Ko Tate says the association believes its report is one more reason the U.N. Security Council should take up the issue of Burma.
