BREAKING NEWS UPDATE – Zaw Pe release could be Friday

Jailed DVB video-journalist Zaw Pe and co-defendant Win Myint Hlaing may be released as early as tomorrow, said their lawyer, because their three-month sentence ends on Sunday, which is a holiday. “We see this as a very positive move by the authorities although we believe that he is innocent of both charges he was jailed under and that the sentence should be completely dropped,” said DVB Rangoon bureau chief Toe Zaw Latt.
