The lawyer for the widow of Par Gyi, a reporter who was killed in army custody in 2014, said he would try to get the case reopened.

The journalist’s widow Ma Thandar reported that the judge ruled the victim died of a gunshot wound.
Par Gyi’s widow Ma Thandar tells DVB that she wrote to government bodies complaining about the acquittal of two servicemen by a military court.
Ma Thandar gives testimony in a civilian court hearing as she criticises the acquittal of two soldiers which the government says has constitutional basis.
