Sein Win, a renowned journalist in Myanmar who championed press freedom and endured three stints in prison as he chronicled several decades of his country’s turbulent history, died Thursday at age 91.
His family said he died in a Yangon hospital after a long period of ill health.
His work won him international honours, but in his own country his accomplishments were rewarded with jail time and a quarter-century ban on foreign travel.
Sein Win was The Associated Press‘ correspondent in Yangon, Myanmar’s largest city, from 1969 to 1989. His daughter Aye Aye Win has held the job since then.
Sein Win began his journalism career after the 1942 Japanese invasion of what was then called Burma. He started as an unpaid translator at a Burmese-language newspaper, and later worked as an apprentice reporter, editor, publisher and foreign correspondent.
He worked under Japanese occupation, British colonialism, parliamentary democracy and military rule. He lived long enough to see censorship lifted, and the return this year of private daily newspapers under the elected government that took over from the military in 2011.
