Reuters editor Adler again calls for release of its two reporters in Myanmar
Reuters editor in chief Steve Adler released the following statement:
It is now nearly a month since Reuters journalists Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo were arrested in connection with their reporting on important issues in Myanmar. As they near their hearing date, it remains entirely clear that they are innocent of any wrongdoing. Their arrest and continued incarceration represent an egregious attack on press freedom — preventing them, and deterring other journalists, from reporting independently in Myanmar. We again call for their immediate release.
