Journalist in hiding after death threats and facing arrest

Aung Marm Oo is a journalist currently in hiding from Burma’s notorious Special Branch police, fearing arrest and up to five years in jail.

 

All Aung Marm Oo did is try to report on what is going on in Rakhine State, Burma. That included reporting on human rights violations by the military against civilians. First he started receiving death threats, then Special Branch came looking for him.

 

Tell Min Aung Hlaing, the head of the Burmese military, to drop the charges against Aung Marm Oo.
