Detained Reuters Journalists in Myanmar Should be Released

Reuters journalists Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo have now been in prison in Yangon for over four months. Their arrest and prosecution are part of a crackdown on freedom of the press in Myanmar intended to silence reporting on the crimes committed against Rohingyas. The journalists are young Buddhists who have done nothing to harm the state. Yet they face a sham trial for possessing “official secrets” and may be sentenced to up to 14 years in prison.

Today in court one of the prosecution’s own witnesses admitted that the arrest was a “trap” in stunning testimony that drew gasps from those in the courtroom. The witness, a police captain, gave evidence that brigadier Tin Ko Ko ordered police to arrange a meeting with Wa Lone to hand over “secret documents” that would set up an arrest moments later. According to the witness, the brigadier gave the documents to a junior police officer, instructed him to give them to Wa Lone in a restaurant and told him that when Wa Lone came out the “regional police force has to entrap him and arrest him”. The brigadier also “told the police members, ‘if you don’t get Wa Lone, you will go to jail’”.

It is now clear to any impartial observer that this case is a bungled attempt to entrap two innocent young men. The US, UK, Canada, the UN and the European Union have already demanded the journalists’ release, and further action may follow if the case is not resolved.

Silencing critics through false arrests and arbitrary detention flies in the face of Myanmar’s professed dedication to the rule of law and free speech, and risks lasting damage to the country’s reputation and economy. But the truthful testimony of a brave witness is a step in the right direction. The prosecution should now drop the case immediately or, failing that, the district court judge should dismiss it. If this does not happen, it will be the responsibility of the government to grant an amnesty.

Inside the world of Amal Clooney Vogue Magazine US May 2018

OMG Amal Clooney is on the cover and in Vogue US May 2018 issue, on newsstands April 24 for her first interview by Nathan Heller. Read the full interview here

On twins Ella and Alexander‘s first words: “We’ve had some ‘Mamas’ and ‘Dadas.’ George was very careful to ensure that ‘Mama’ was the first word.”

On #MeToo: “I think because of the brave women who have come forward to tell their stories, the future workplace will be safer for my daughter than it was for people of my generation. We’re in a situation where a predator feels less safe and a professional woman feels more safe, and that’s where we need to be.”

George, on his amazing wife: “She’s the professional, and I’m the amateur. I get to see someone at the absolute top of their game doing their job better than anybody I’ve ever seen.”

About my blog :”In an email that evening, Clooney urges me to drop by the next day for lunch, and, when I come, her arms are full of subdued, crinkle-faced babies, just arisen from another nap. Ella, wearing a tiny dress, studies me with such scrutiny that I feel quietly judged. (The verdict seems to be poor.) Her mother is wearing an inverse variation on her previous day’s outfit: a leopard-print vintage Leonard dress with leather boots to the thigh. Much has been made of Clooney’s first-rate closet—an attentive WordPress blog is devoted solely to her wardrobe—and although it can irk her when her dais outfits are discussed more avidly than her human rights cases, she’s at peace with a balance of fashion in her life. “I hate the idea that you somehow, as a human being, have to be put in a box,” she says. “There’s no reason why lawyers can’t be fun—or actresses can’t be serious.” She has been working with a designer she adores to finalize her dress for May’s Met ball, which she will cochair.”

Amal is wearing an Alexander McQueen top and Cartier earrings on the cover.
