Myanmar: American journalist sentenced to 11 years in prison on various charges

A Myanmar court has sentenced American journalist Danny Feinster to 11 years in prison.

The American journalist has been convicted of illicit relations, incitement against the military and violating visa rules.

An American journalist working for a local newspaper was arrested in May this year and faces charges of treason and terrorism. An American journalist could face up to life in prison for the charges.

The United States has condemned the journalist’s sentencing, saying it was monitoring the situation and would continue to work for the release of the American journalist from Myanmar.

The United Nations has demanded the immediate release of all journalists detained in Myanmar. Freedom of the press in Myanmar has been under the worst pressure since the military took power in February.
