On Friday, Danny Fenster, an American journalist in Myanmar who was arrested as he tried to leave the country in May, was sentenced to 11 years imprisonment on three charges. Fenster was on trial for allegedly encouraging dissent against the military, unlawful association and breaching immigration law.
A Myanmar junta court sentenced detained American journalist Danny Fenster to 11 years in prison on three charges on Friday, according to his employer.
A court in military-ruled Myanmar jailed American journalist Danny Fenster for 11 years, his lawyer and his employer said, despite U.S. calls for his release from what it said was unjust detention.
