Myanmar frees journalist who was charged under terrorism law
Mandalay: A Myanmar journalist arrested on terrorism charges after publishing an interview with a spokesman for the Arakan Army rebel group was freed on Thursday and said police had told him they would not pursue the case.
Nay Myo Lin, the editor-in-chief of Voice of Myanmar, was charged under sections of the Terrorism Act last week by a court in the second largest city, Mandalay, over a March 27 interview with the AA, which is waging a war in the conflict-torn western Rakhine region.
Mandalay police declined to comment on his release when contacted by phone. Reuters was unable to contact the court for comment. – Reuters
