Prison court sentences blogger to 20 years, poet to two years

first_imgNews May 31, 2021 Find out more News Organisation MyanmarAsia – Pacific Reporters Without Borders and the Burma Media Association are appalled by the combined sentence of 20 years and six months in prison that a special court in Insein prison passed today on a young blogger, Nay Phone Latt. A poet, Saw Wai, was sentenced to two years in prison for a poem containing a coded criticism of Gen. Than She, the head of the military junta.”The authorities have imposed an extraordinarily severe punishment on Nay Phone Latt just for using the Internet,” the two organisations said. “This shocking sentence is meant to terrify those who go online in an attempt to elude the dictatorship’s ubiquitous control of news and information, and we call for his immediate release. Saw Wai, for his part, is being made to pay for his impertinence and courage as a committed poet.”The two organisations added: “There is an urgent need now for bloggers all over the world to demonstrate their solidarity with Nay Phone Latt by posing his photo on their blogs and by writing to Burmese embassies worldwide to request his release. Similarly, we call on poets to defend their fellow-poet, Saw Wai, who has been jailed just because of one poem.”The total sentence of 20 years and six months imposed on Nay Phone Latt by judge Daw Soe consisted of two years for violating article 505 (b) of the Criminal Code (which punishes defamation of the state), three years and six months for violating article 32 (b) of the Video Act and 15 years for violating article 33 (a) of the Electronic Act.Nay Phone Latt’s mother, who was not allowed to attend the trial inside the prison, said: “I was expecting him to get 10 or 12 years in prison at the most. I never imagined he would get this much. The authorities have been excessively cruel with him.” The blogger’s lawyer was himself jailed for criticising the special court’s procedures.It was the same judge who imposed the two-year sentence on Saw Wai, a romantic poet who was arrested by the military on 22 January, the day after a Valentine’s Day poem by him was published in the popular weekly Achit Journal (Love Journal).

EPL restart suffers setback as Brighton confirm third COVID-19 case

first_imgThe Premier League’s Project Restart has suffered a huge blow as Brighton have confirmed that a third player has tested positive for coronavirus. Brighton chief executive Paul Barber told Sky Sports News: “It is a concern. “Unfortunately we’ve had a third player test positive yesterday (Saturday, May 9), so despite all of the measures that we’ve been taking over the past few weeks, where the players haven’t been involved in any significant training at all, we’ve still suffered another player testing positive for the virus. “So there are concerns and I think it’s normal for all clubs to have those concerns. “We want to make sure we do everything that we can to ensure those protocols are in place and are safe and secure and mitigate the risk as far as we can.” Prime Minister Boris Johnson is set to relax the UK’s coronavirus lockdown regulations during tonight’s address to the nation. His words are expected to trigger phase one of the Premier League’s Project Restart – the name of the plan to get top division football back underway. A video call is scheduled to take place today between league chiefs and the clubs to discuss how players can return to training later this month with a view to matches resuming in June. But Brighton’s latest positive COVID-19 test will only intensify the doubts which are increasing amongst players and staff. Several Premier League clubs are against the idea of having to resume the season in the midst of a global pandemic.

Loading… They want the campaign ended prematurely like has happened in France, Belgium and Holland. There is a huge sticky point in talks between clubs as the Premier League wants the season to resume in neural stadia. But Watford chairman Scott Duxbury is completely against that idea. He said: “When at least six clubs — and I suspect more — are concerned about the clear downside and the devastating effects of playing in this kind of distorted nine-game mini-league, then I believe the Premier League has a duty of care to address those concerns. “If we start and finish a whole season under these conditions and at neutral venues when everybody knows the rules when we start, not created in a time of crisis, then that is clearly fair.

How is there any semblance of fairness? To wave aside all the fears and concerns is too simplistic. “Surely all 20 clubs must agree the fairest way forward to complete the season?” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 last_img read more
