Burma Tribunal Fees Reuters Reporter under Official Secrets Act
YANGON: A Myanmar tribunal on Monday (July 9) indicted two detained Reuters investigators for having received classified state records, bringing the groundbreaking case of media freedoms into the process after six month of pretrial. Ye Lwin, county magistrate, accused reporter Wa Lone, 32, and Kyaw Soe Oo, 28, of violating the clandestine law of the colony, which provides for a 14-year jail sentence.
On Monday, the magistrate said that the tribunal had brought an action against both journalists under section 3. Acts of Investigation of the Public Prosecutor's Office's claims that it has gathered and obtained confidential documentation about the police with the intent of harming domestic safety. The case now enters the litigation stage, in which defenders call testimonies before the judges who, according to the opinion of law professionals, will then give a judgment.
Earlier today, defenders asked the court to dismiss the case because the public prosecutors had not provided enough proof to back the indictment. During the same hearings on July 2, Public Attorney Kyaw Min Aung asked the court to prosecute the reporter. Said that when they were detained, papers they had in their possession depicted in detail the movement of the police, while other papers found on their cell phone range from classified to top-disclosed.
The Myanmar spokesperson Zaw Htay has refused to speak throughout the trial as Myanmar's tribunals are sovereign and the case would be brought under the Act. It did not respond immediately to phone requests for comments following Monday's verdict. When they were arrested in December, the journalists had been working on an inquiry into the murder of 10 Muslim Rohingya men and young men in a small town in the West Burmese state of Rakhine.
These murders took place during a bombing which the UN organizations say more than 700,000 Rohingya fled to neighboring Bangladesh. Reporter reports have said that they were almost immediately apprehended after being curled up in a Yangon restaurants by two police officers they had not known.
Captain Moe Yan Naing said in April that a high-ranking official had ordered his subjects to place classified documentation on Wa Lone to "catch" the report. Moe Yan Naing was condemned to one year in prison after appearing in the courtroom for talking to Wa Lone, and his wife and daughter were expelled by the cops.
Authors, the media and defenders of fundamental freedoms around the globe have gathered on account of the detained journalists, with the United Nations and several West European nations demanding their free.
