Ngwe Soe Lin: In his words

DVB video journalist Ngwe Soe Lin was part of the camera team that filmed Channel 4’s 2009 documentary, ‘Orphans of Burma’s Cyclone’, for which he was honoured with the Rory Peck Award for cameramen working in dangerous environments. By the time the award came round in late 2009 however, Ngwe Soe Lin had already been apprehended by police and was preparing for a 13-year prison sentence.

After being released early in January this year, he told DVB about his time in prison and the five days of interrogation he endured before being sent to Insein prison in Rangoon.
