I’m sorry to say but I learned today from NDD that they will not give permission to access the ABSDF archives (for this particular ABSDF archive which is listed as a NDD collection permission from both NDD and ABSDF is needed)
I’m still waiting for a formal reply from ABSDF, but since you need permission from both, one negative answer is enough to deny you permission to the documents.

“The commission came to uncover the truth. There was a plan to release an announcement in May, but it wasn’t release due to many reasons. We need to keep in touch with those who have come back. Only then, we’ll be able to get some information. After getting the information, we’ll clearly know how we can cooperate,” said Ye Linn, one of the survivors who attended the meeting.
In 1991, ABSDF’s northern army tortured over 100 students over suspicions of working for the military intelligence in Parchaung region of Kachin State. Over 20 people have died due to inhumane tortures and their intentions to let them die. The army massacred 15 students on February 12, 1992.
The ABSDF incident in northern Myanmar gained public interest after its survivors started writing about it on Facebook and later published a book.
The ABSDF Central formed an investigation committee in January to investigate the truth.
