NewsGuild of New York's Statement on Unjust Charges Against Reuters Journalists Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo
The NewsGuild of New York stands with Reuters journalists Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo, who have been unjustly charged with breaching Myanmar’s archaic Official Secrets Act. This attempt to silence the press and undermine the role of journalism in empowering citizens with accurate information is of grave concern to all who believe in the absolute necessity of a free press. The ramifications of these trumped up charges from the Maynamar government reverberate across a global community of media professionals. We join those raising their voices to demand that Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo be released.
