Myanmar/ Burma – Sentencing of journalists (July 10, 2014)

France is concerned over the sentencing of five Burmese journalists to 10 years in prison as well as hard labor.

We reaffirm our attachment to the freedom of expression and the press, which constitutes one of the essential foundations of a democratic society.

These sentences send out a negative signal, especially in the current context of reform and democratization in Burma.
