Free Hla Hla Win

On 9 September, jailed DVB video journalist Hla Hla Win turned 27. The occasion was marked by protests outside Burmese embassies in Bangkok, Geneva, Paris and London.

Hla Hla Win spent the day behind bars in northern Burma, where she is expected to spend her subsequent 25 birthdays. The young reporter is not due to be released until 2036, having been given a lengthy prison term largely because of her work for DVB. We demand that she and our 16 other jailed journalists, as well as the nearly 2000 political prisoners in Burma, are released.
