#Burma #myanmar #Journalists and #protestors #charged with #Section #18

july13-silent1

Over 50 journalists who staged a silent protest during President Thein Sein’s visit to the Myanmar Peace Center on Saturday have been charged for protesting without permission, according to senior police sources.
The journalists sat outside the center wearing black tape across their mouths and T-shirts saying: “Stop Killing the Press” as the president was meeting with artists in the morning. They were joined by residents from Michaungkan who have been waging a year-long protest to claim their confiscated lands back.
“All journalists and Michaungkan residents who participated in the protest have been charged with Section 18 [of the Peace Assembly and Procession Law] because they did not apply for permission and held an illegal protest. They will be investigated through photo records. They may be released on bail after they have been arrested,” said a senior police official on condition of anonymity.
The protests came in response to the recent sentencing of four journalists and the chief executive of the now defunct Unity Journal with ten years hard labour for an investigative report on the existence of a secret weapons factory.
The interim press council held a meeting on Saturday and issued a statement condemning the ten-year sentence of the Unity five and requested a meeting with the President. They also forwarded a motion saying they would resign and dissolve the council if their request was not met.
“The press council will request a meeting with the President. If the government fails to give their response, there is no reason for me to stay in this organisation if we cannot protect and represent journalists. In my personal view, we are ready to resign if the president does not respond to our demands,” said Chit Win Maung, a member of the interim Myanmar Press Council.
International journalist associations and human rights groups have criticised the recent media crackdown saying as a repression of civil liberties and press freedom.
Ei Mon Kyaw, the executive editor of Doe Taung Thu journal, published by People Power Media, heard that she may be one of the ones charged under Section 18 for attending the protest.
“I’m sad after hearing that I’m included among those who have been charged. If I’ve been really charged, I will face the case bravely,” she said.
Others who participated in the protest had not been officially informed yet but were ready to face any charges.
“The police station did not inform me officially, but I’ve learnt from my sources that I’m included in the list of journalists that will be charged. As I’ve done what I should have done, I’m ready to face it,” said Aung Thura, chief reporter of the 7 Day daily newspaper.

MYANMAR BURMA : Journalists from Myanmar Journalists Network staging a protest rally against the imprisonment of EMG reporter Ma Khine in Yangon

YANGON—More than one hundred journalists staged a protest rally yesterday against the imprisonment of EMG reporter Ma Khine from Loikaw, condemning the unfair court judgment as a deliberate attempt to suppress media rights and the freedom to report.

While pursuing a story about the illegal trade in pirate video rentals, EMG reporter Naw Khine Khine Aye Cho, also known as Ma Khine, visited the home of lawyer Aye Aye Phyoe to seek an interview. The lawyer, unsatisfied with the reporter’s questions, sued her for trespassing, defamation and abusive language. Deputy judge Mya Min Han of the Township Court sentenced the reporter to a three-month jail term.

Such imprisonment for the three sections concerned has been widely condemned as a threat to the right of the freedom to report, and critics say the trial was unfair. On December 21, two weeks after the court’s decision, the Myanmar Journalists Network sent a letter to concerned judicial organizations to review the verdict. But there was no response from authorities over the imprisonment of the Eleven Media reporter, so the journalists decided to stage a protest.

Yesterday’s demonstration was organized by the Myanmar Journalists Network and held with official permission from concerned authorities. The protesters began their march from Yangon’s town hall to the Eleven Media Office in Tamwe Township.

“Today’s rally is aimed at protesting the imprisonment of EMG’s reporter by the Loikaw Township Court. The verdict is not supposed to be fair; moreover, it poses a direct threat to the right of freedom to report. We want this matter to be reviewed. The imprisonment of Ma Khine threatens all of our reporters. Such charges have rarely been used to sentence people to prison while they’re covering news. The judiciary is wrong here. It may be the instigation of the judge or it may be corruption. The judgment is intended to oppress all journalists in Myanmar. That’s why we have decided to stage this protest,” said Myit Kyaw, secretary of the MJN.

Aung Thura, chief reporter for 7-Day newspaper, said that Ma Khine’s prison sentence is not only a threat to free media but an attack on democracy itself.

“We are marching toward democracy, so freedom should be given to the media. No journalist should be charged with trespass, defamation or abusive language just for doing her job, like Ma Khine. We cannot accept this kind of threat. We are raising this issue to make the whole country and the whole world know about that. This is our response,” he said.

“If there is no rule of law, the government’s democratic reforms will not come true. If there is no right to legal process in this country, investments will not come from the international community. This is true. Some foreign countries are still watching the situation of Myanmar. The main root of all conflicts is a lack of rule of law and an improper judicial system.”

Sandar Maw, another journalist, said she joined the protest because she sees the judicial sector oppressing the media.

“We want improper acts against the right of freedom to report to stop. Ma Khine was sentenced to three months in jail because she was getting the news for the public. Punishments must be fair, not heavy. We cannot accept this improper punishment.”

Outside the Eleven Media offices, protesters shouted slogans such as “We don’t want any threats to press freedom,” “We want to obtain the news freely,” and “We want a fair judiciary.”

Lower House MP Khine Maung Yi, Min Ko Naing of the 88 Generation Open Society, political parties, and civic organizations encouraged the protesters, Min Ko Naing saying that they would stand together with the journalists for the sake of press freedom and a fair judiciary.

Eleven Media Group CEO Than Htut Aung thanked all the journalists who participated in the protest—not only behalf of Ma Khine, he said, but of all Myanmar citizens.

“There remain two problems with the democratic changes of our country. One is leadership, and it concerns people in the political role. Another is democratic institutions. Only with firm institutions can there be a lasting democracy. Our country has no firm institutions except for the Tatmadaw (armed forces). The media pillar is the one that should be solid. Our media institution will be one the country can rely on some day, when journalists can safeguard high journalistic codes of conduct, press freedom is valued and media rights are respected,” he said.

“I believe that the journalists here decided to participate in this protest because they wanted the rights of people to know the news, the right to criticise the newsmakers and right to determine the truth resulting from the news on behalf of the public. The protest is aimed at demanding press freedom to be able to protect the rights of the people. This freedom is not meant simply for Ma Khine or Eleven Media. The freedom does not concern the journalists. This freedom is a requirement for the emergence of a new democratic nation the people desired for more than five decades. In this state, press freedom should not be used for selfish interests. But we must have sufficient press codes. We will serve the people. That is why I thank all the journalists demanding press freedom on behalf of the people.”

jan8-press-rally

Lower House MP Khin Maung Yi said that President Thein Sein has said the fourth estate is important for the country, and so has the Speaker of the Union Assembly parliament. The imprisonment of a reporter is not an ordinary matter between the judicial and media sectors.

“This was worse: it was an attack on the media. The media was the weakest among the four pillars because it had no power. The convicted prisoner was female and she is in jail. In 2014-2015, media people will continue to do their work. But the imprisonment of a reporter is a frightening sign,” said Khin Maung Yi.

Committee to Protect Journalists:Five journalists injured in bomb attack in Thailand

SOUTH THAILAND

Bangkok, October 22, 2013–The Committee to Protect Journalists condemns the recent roadside bomb attack that injured five reporters in southern Thailand and calls on both sides of the region’s insurgent conflict to refrain from attacks that imperil journalists.

An improvised explosive device detonated on October 19 near a Thai army foot patrol in the southernmost province of Narathiwat, according to news reports. Two soldiers died from injuries sustained in the first explosion. A little under an hour later, while Thai officials and reporters were investigating the blast, a second hidden explosive device exploded in a nearby tree.

Violence in Thailand’s southernmost provinces has intensified in recent weeks after a declared ceasefire between a rebel group and the Thai government failed to hold during the Muslim fasting period of Ramadan. More than 5,000 people have been killed in the restive region since an insurgent movement restarted a decades-old fight for autonomy in January 2004.

News accounts reported that the five journalists injured and hospitalized by the second bomb attack were Thai Channel 5 reporter Santhiti Korjimate; Siam Rath newspaper reporter Muranee Mama; Thai PBS reporter Pathitta Noosanthad; AFP photographer Madaree Tohala; and Thai Channel 7 reporter Kreeya Tohtanee. The extent of their injuries was not immediately clear.

“These types of staggered bomb attacks are designed to injure those who investigate southern Thailand’s insurgency-related violence,” said Shawn Crispin, CPJ’s senior Southeast Asia representative. “Too often, reporters are among those injured in the follow-up attacks. Both sides in southern Thailand’s conflict have a responsibility to ensure that journalists can safely report and the flow of information is not impeded.”

Soon Media will come up with:”2 US-based journalists have been blacklisted by the Burmese government after they visited Arakan”

2 US-based journalists have been blacklisted by the Burmese government after they visited conflict-struck western Arakan state to cover the ongoing persecution of Bengali  the “Rohingya “Muslim minority, DVB has learned.–

that,s why: ” THAILAND Deputy Interior Minister Wisarn Techathirawat says the presence of the media encourages Rohingya refugees to “act-up in front of the camera” in order to get sympathy.
Mr Wisarn was at the Phang Nga Immigration center yesterday to inspect the facility, following a Rohingya riot there earlier this month.
“The media often knows that the Rohingya are arriving even before the police do,” he said.
“And when the media are present, the Rohingya cry and put on a performance designed to get sympathy. When the media are not present, they act normally, and even seem to enjoy their interaction with the officers,” he said.
The “feigned pitifulness” of the Rohingya reported by the press is giving Thailand a bad name,” Mr Wisarn said.

Media persons criticize attacks on journalists

NARINJARA NEWS

By Ni Moe

( Yangon, 4 July 2013):  Myanmar Journalist Networks had organized a press conference Wednesday in Yangon, the former capital of Burma to narrate the story of assaults on some photo journalists by the security forces engaged in the historic Shwe Dagon pagoda.

The photo was taken by a photo journalist during confrontation between photo journalists and security forces

Ko Lin Bo Bo, a photo journalist from European Press Photo Agency with some other journalists attended the press conference, held at Kyauk Tan Htar township of  Yangon on July 3 evening, where he described about the incident of physical assault.

The journalist team was there on July 2 knowing that the Thai Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn would pay a visit to the gigantic pagoda in Yangon. Photo journalist Bo Bo  was waiting for two to three hours there to get an opportunity to take photographs of the visiting Thai Princess.

Accordingly Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn arrived at the splendid pagoda in the evening and Bo Bo with some other photo journalists rushed to the spot. Suddenly there emerged a security person who pushed Bo Bo from his back to the ground. Bo Bo had to swing for few feet behind and his valuable 70-200mm F4 L IS USM Lens of Canon 1D Mark III was also broken.

Two young photo journalists, who were observing the incident, quickly came to the spot and questioned about it to the security person. But more security personnel gathered on the spot and engaged in hot debates with the journalists.

Finding the incident unpleasant, many photo journalists left the place, but Bo Bo with two young photo journalists stayed there. They were again targeted by the security personnel on duty.

In another incident, Ko Aung Naing Soe from popular news organization too tried to snap some photographs, when the security personnel took away his camera and even threaten to smash the instrument.

Ko Aung Naing Soe, while addressing the press conference, argued that the freedom of press in Burma is yet to be established as the authority continues oppressing the working journalists.

Speaking to Narinjara through the phone, Ko Lin Bo Bo informed that he had already complained to Myanmar Press Council. He expects that even if the security personnel do not apologize publicly, but they should confess in front of media persons that they had done a mistake with attacks on journalists.
