Myanmar journalists, lawyers raise concerns over jailing of Reuters reporters


YANGON (Reuters) - Groups representing journalists and lawyers in Myanmar handed a letter to the country's president on Friday outlining their concerns over the jailing of two Reuters reporters convicted of breaking state secrets laws.

The letter, given to President Win Myint at the inauguration of the semi-official Myanmar Press Council (MPC), pointed out contradictions in the case against Wa Lone, 32, and Kyaw Soe Oo, 28, who were sentenced to seven years in jail in September.
