Myanmar Supreme Court rejects appeal of Reuters journalists | DW News

Myanmar’s Supreme Court has rejected the final appeal of Reuters journalists Kyaw Soe Oo and Wa Lone, who are serving a prison sentence because of their reporting on the country’s crackdown on Rohingya Muslims. They have already spent more than 16 months in detention. They were arrested during an investigation into the killing of 10 Rohingya Muslim men during a military crackdown in the western part of Myanmar. A district court sentenced the two journalists to seven years in prison last September – for illegally possessing official documents. They’ve since been awarded the Pulitzer Prize for their work.
