Since April 1, Dr Khin has been unable to sleep in his own bed in his family home. Instead, he often lies awake in undercover locations, listening as military patrol cars circle the streets of Mandalay, Myanmar’s largest city, hunting for their next victim to arrest, torture, or worse. “I heard that my name is on their list... maybe they will come for me,” he told the Telegraph. “Sometimes I feel insecure because at night they are patrolling around the neighbourhood… and maybe I’m at risk of getting captured.” Dr Khin is one of hundreds of Myanmar doctors on the run from the brutal junta for committing the alleged offences of opposing the regime and practising medicine. “We are living in fear, this is a living hell. We cannot eat peacefully, we cannot sleep peacefully, and for the most part we are worrying about our families,” said Dr Htun, another Mandalay medic. “If you are not found in your own house, they will arrest one of your family, like your father or your mother. The other night they shot a family member on sight because someone they were looking for was not in the house.” The medical profession has been at the forefront of resistance to the coup since the military seized power on February 1, with thousands joining a “civil disobedience movement” and refusing to work directly for government hospitals at the service of the generals.
