Myanmar: Release human rights lawyer jailed on politically motivated charges
The Myanmar authorities must immediately and unconditionally release human rights lawyer Khin Khin Kyaw, who has been convicted of “contempt of court” and sentenced to six months in prison in connection with her role as a defense lawyer, said Amnesty International today. The conviction and imprisonment mark yet another blow for rule of law in Myanmar and sends a worrying message to human rights defenders across the country.
