Canadian Embassy in Myanmar - Home
Honourable Chrystia Freeland, Foreign Minister, today made the following announcement on the verdict in the case of two Reuters reporters detained in Myanmar in December 2017:... "Canada is extremely worried about today's verdict to bring charges against Reuters reporters under the Official Secrets Act for the receipt of classified material after a six-month preliminary hearing period.
It is a shady choice for Myanmar's free media and people. The Canadian government has joined the multinational movement and continues to call for the immediate freeing of newsmen. "It is imperative to observe the principles of fundamental freedoms and democracy. The accusation against Reuters' reporters under these conditions seriously erodes the right to free speech.
It is imperative that media be able to provide the general population with facts without obstructing or threatening to violate or imprison them. Canadians will seize every chance to support and protect free speech worldwide.
