BREAKING NEWS - DVB video-journalist released from prison

“I have nothing to be grateful about,” complained DVB reporter Zaw Pe by telephone from outside the gates of Thayet Prison. “I shouldn’t have been jailed in the first place.”

Zaw Pe was released from custody on Friday at 1pm after his one-year sentence for “trespassing” and “disturbing a civil servant” was reduced to three months. Co-defendant Win Myint Hlaing was also released.
