Journos get bail in Myanmar
– The incitement case against three Myanmar journalists who reported critically on the financial management of Yangon’s government has been withdrawn, their lawyer said yesterday.
Eleven Media’s executive editors Kyaw Zaw Lin and Nayi Min and chief reporter Phyo Wai Win were arrested in October but got bail after a few weeks in detention.
They were accused of incitement after an article questioned budgeting within the city government, which is run by Phyo Min Thein, a close confidante of civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi. – AFP
