Myanmar says it will drop charges against journalists


Police in Myanmar say they will drop charges against two journalists and their interpreter and driver, who were jailed after filming with a drone, APA reports quoting BBC.

 

The four were working for Turkish broadcaster TRT when they filmed near parliament in the capital Naypyitaw.

 

They are currently serving two-month sentences for violating an aircraft law, with further charges pending.

 

But a police lieutenant appeared in a Naypyitaw courtroom on Tuesday to request the charges be dropped.

 

Addressing the court alongside an immigration officer, Tun Tun Win said the four had not intended to endanger national security.

 

Cameraman Lau Hon Meng from Singapore, reporter Mok Choy Lin from Malaysia, their interpreter, journalist Aung Naing Soe, and driver Hla Tin, both from Myanmar, were detained on 27 October.
