Jailed Reuters Reporters Appeal Rejected By Myanmar Court

According to a report by Reuters, on Friday, a Myanmar court rejected the appeal of two Reuters reporters sentenced to seven years in jail on charges of breaking the Officials Secrets Act, claiming that their defense had not provided sufficient evidence to prove their innocence.

In September, 32 year-old Wa Lone and 28 year-old Kyaw Soe Oo were convicted by a lower court in a case that sparked an international outcry from diplomats and human rights advocates.

Reuters reports that the defense still has the option of making a further appeal to the country’s supreme court, located in the capital Naypyitaw.
