Podcast: Journalist seeks justice in the courts

There is a poor track record of detention and arrest of journalists in Myanmar. One journalist is fighting back and has brought charges against employees of a private company she alleges detained and hit her in retaliation for a story she published.

This story is by Esther from Myitkyina News Journal.

Doh Athan is a weekly podcast that looks at human rights issues. It’s produced by Frontier with media partners from around the country, through a partnership with Fondation Hirondelle. It is supported by the Embassy of the Netherlands in Myanmar and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation.

Listen in Burmese.
