than 100 journalists media officials or publishers who have been detained since the military ousted the elected government of Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi in February This is another one of those stories of where the government in some countries decides the journalists are a threat and if they don't cut their heads off or shoot them in the back they'll detain them for sometimes years on end and often for almost always on trumped up charges And so here's this Danny finster guy who you and I didn't know anything about is suddenly what what happened He was there about to come home to

"myanmar" Discussed on UN News
"We said that we were very concerned given the history of Myanmar of so many crimes against civilians occurring in political conflicts that we would be watching the situation closely. And what we've seen since then is, unfortunately, it appears that very serious crimes have been happening throughout the country in different regions in the country, systematically on a widespread basis. So we're collecting that information. And many different sources have been voluntarily reaching out to us to provide us with information. Others we have contacted. And we've collected, we received over 200,000 communications just in the first few months after the coup with information that people wanted to share with us. So it's increased the burden on us, but it's also given us that opportunity that we have more individuals and organizations willing to speak to us more opportunities to talk to those who have information about what is happening or has happened in the past in Myanmar. And this has created some opportunities for our investigations. Is it correct to say that some of the investigations you're conducting some of the information you're collecting wouldn't be otherwise collected? Yes, I believe that absolutely that's fair to say. I've worked on different war crime tribunals, the different processes for to seek accountability. And one of the things that we've seen in other conflicts is the importance of preserving information while it's still fresh. While you can because of course, crime scenes get disturbed, bodies decompose, wounds can heal, people's memories can fade, witnesses with information can die. And can pass away without that information being collected. So it's very important to collect the information while you can. Because unfortunately, international justice often is a long process..

"But then five thousand feet up and down just diving. The film is a production of frontline. Also produced here at gbh in boston. Jennings joins me now from new york tom. Your film condenses years of investigative journalism. I'm going to ask you to condense even further in the end. What brought the two boeing planes down. There is not one individual who brought down seven. Thirty seven max. It was all about group. Think it was about a certain kind of inertia at the federal aviation administration the regulator but it was also the corporation itself and how it had come to believe in its own sense of mission and engineering capacities. Its ability to do no wrong. What technically went wrong with the planes may what was the technical issue there was a software program embedded into the cockpit is called an cast. It was all about letting pilots handle the plane effectively that program though who was designed in a way that was only for the highest of rare in extreme circumstances but blowing decided a certain point to implement that at normal operating levels in that problem with that was if there is a malfunction with that caste system at low levels. The pilots didn't have time to respond to it if it went into malfunction. And that's exactly what happened in those two flights that went down. The documentary goes over the context in which the seven thirty seven max was brought to market. Even though there were host of red flags within boeing. Here's one of your new york times collaborators. All of this comes out of trying to give airlines the most fuel-efficient version of plainfield. They can spend as little money training their pilots on. To what extent was this a corporate culture problem and to what extent was just plain malfeasance on boeing's part or was it both it's both it's malfeasance in the sense that there was a demand placed upon the engineering design process from the highest ranks from the c. Level down to contain costs. Because of that pressure that natalie kitchen f in that clip was talking the airlines. Were demanding a very fuel. Efficient cost effective airplane. Any kind of thing that went into the design process that effectively increased. The cost to the airlines was really looked down upon that resulted in a full-on attempt to reduce the cost of training of pilots. It's interesting the crashes both happened. In developing countries indonesia and ethiopia. A man who you interviewed in ethiopia lost five people in his family in the crash and was told it wasn't boeing's fault at.

"That. How do you stop. Lincoln's answers to the questions about the tens of thousands of afghan people who've been behind the people the us could not get out in time. His answers were evasive and unclear. We still don't really understand. The universe of those who helped the united states over the course of twenty years who remained in afghanistan are eager to leave. We know that those are many many many thousands more than those who actually were able to get out in this period of time. Finally going forward with the way. The biden administration handled the exit from afghanistan. Go down as a. Us foreign policy failure. Look the whole experiment is going to go down as a us foreign policy failure. That's four straight. Us presidents when the world's greatest military power spent two decades in country and then leaves under conditions like this and the government that was created propped up trained advised and solicited by united states collapses within eleven days. That is a black mark on the united states. It's not attributable to any one person but it is unquestionably a failure. One that will be studied for a long time to come. But the evacuation took place under joe biden's administration and he's the one who pulled the plug. Finally do you think this will him throughout the rest of his presidency. He will be accountable to that now. If history is any guide the american public has been very disinterested by and large in afghanistan for much of the two decades that we've been there so i'm guessing that the united states leaving the conditions under which it did so is not going to be more of a public political issue here in the united states than our presence was for the last two decades and i would think as a matter of politics. It's likely to fade fairly quickly. But as a matter of execution you know. Many presidents have faced foreign policy embarrassments overseas especially in their first years and that ended up being part of the records. And i think that's what we're looking at here which oh biden and the afghanistan withdrawal. Susan glasser is a staff writer with a new yorker.

"If you're not a traditional burmese buddhist what extent all of those other ethnic groups under pressure so honored ethnic communities most of them are christians and some buddhists wild but the military intensified the fighting against these ethnic communities lately and when they have this fighting against them basically basically target the entire population civilian and rape women. You know kill people and they practice of Arrest and extrajudicial killing has been like daily life experiences of the people in ethic communities in addition to limiting their access to -tarian aid if they become internally dispaced person or laura jeez in addition to the ability to access education health care and other leading. Who's there has been the active practice self obligatory arrest Closely and many forms of violence against the ethnic communities including sexual lennon's the sexual violence has been used as a weapon of the war against ethnic communities for decades. There are several women's organizations including shan women action network women lick off the they came out with a very substantial report on how the military has used these sexual violence against the women rape as a weapon of war for decades and there were no accountability for their practices thus the military continue to use rape as a weapon against the hindu population to terrorize to destroy entire populations so there has been thousands of women who have been raped during the clearance operations in two thousand sixteen and seventeen and they're living witnesses in refugee camps today. Part of the psychology of using rape as a weapon of war to enforce humiliation on the defeated side in this so for the case of rhodesia. It was to humiliate and to terrorize the entire populations. Because we were not actively fighting against the military and it was not a civil war unlike in many other ethnic communities and situations the multiples very clear that they want to humiliate row as a group so that they would never return to Once they are expelled from their land. And you know it's not just that rape to humiliate and terrorize. But they actually very aggressively conducted mutilations. They raped they kill the torture. And the and this practice has been done in front of the family members that whole village openly and in some cases y as they were raping female they were killing their husband and taking their children and putting them into the fire so that parents were more terrorized before they've been killed so it's been very aggressive very horrific form of violations against fellow humans so that level our barrick behavior and ruthlessness. You seem like a remarkably balanced normal person. How did you survive in. Prison is a very young girl. Must've been a time of constant here when we were arrested. Amin i was barely a teenager so it was extremely hot to understand why we were put in jail. I mean as a teenager. I suppose to be going to school and extremely difficult to understand in hot to cope with it for a couple of years but then i decided to no. I cannot just give up at be sad all the time and pry for the release. It's not going to happen. So i decided to just change my mind and stay strong and i feed myself in many many ways i try to spend my time including readings in talking to people and i realized what happened to us was not at fault. It's actually the military dictatorship who's supposed to be accountable for their act against innocent people like us. So i guess that notion empowered me and i was able to stay strong but when i was released i was really expecting. That will have democracy and we'll be able to contribute to building and democratic nations. But instead what i realized was enacted areas. That prosecution has actually intensified in many many incidences in in particular in the case of Is not only that the prosecution human rights violations has had intensified but it's actually rushed to a very adopt and horrific experiences self this genocide which remain unaddressed. Today i was very closely involved in trying to stop the genocide as as ended impunity for the military. We've been documenting what happens to the people very closely even learning and documenting this process. It's not easy because you know one incident astra one incident is. There's no good story at all and it's extremely difficult to mentally coop with as well. I was privileged to be healthy to have more freedom than many of those people who have been targeted for many forms of violations including sexual violence. Since i was released went back to school night was constantly lun into girl myself so i need to use my knowledge my experience and my ability to influence to help others. If we don't do that. Who else is going to help. Who will do this walk and we will be just witness in our fellow. Human being off communities have being killed are depressed often. Human dignity that i felt. It's the sense of duty and responsibility fly fellow communities regardless of my community or not. I cannot sit and watch to let this have. And i need to take actions. And that's how. I think feeling of privilege and enjoying freedom empowered me bother to take actions. The evolution of me on more may be about to begin. Just have a sense. That time is running out. We don't know how long it will be but we very committed to win this fight and to really change the country to bring freedom democracy equality and peace in my. We're going to follow your courageous jenny. And we're going to link to your organization women's peace network and i look forward as your journey continues.

"Some of our listeners will still remember the country of myanmar burma. That's the name they grew up with but it was changed by the burmese government. And it's now called me and mar so. Don't be too confused. Is that pretty large country just southeast of india and due south of china while i knew welcome. Thank you for joining. I want to start with your personal story because it's so powerful. It's such a model for other people. You talk just for a couple minutes about growing up in myanmar your father's role in government. And how you ended up with your family in prison sure. It's an honor to be here. So i was born in western part of Myanmar in kind state as a member of hinduja where majority of jolliffe resides in. So i was born. There grew in brooklyn state until like nine in. It wasn't early nineties there. Were you know repressions around my communities than i somehow witness some of those repressions which were not as severe as today then. We moved to young mainly due to my father's political activism. He was an elected parliamentarian. In one thousand nine hundred elections in he was chased by the police and military and those days and he was actually locked out for about a month and he was released later however there has been governments meetings and other activities ongoing in the capital city and young so my father decided to move from rookie. Young go so basically majority of my childhood i spent in yengo angolan. Who's an instrumental power of my life. And who i am today growing up with him being very close to him and see and you know what he does all the time and like learning politics sleight just being with him has been incredible experience for me. After thousand nine hundred elections. The military did not transfer the power to the wing in political parties including the national league for democracy led by the aung san suu itchy. That history is repeating today like today in those days. They locked up. Major political leaders and there were severe form of political repressions. My father was one of the leader. Among the eighteen political leaders come up as a coalition called committee representing people holloman led by the onset suci nobel laureate in the current leader who has been jailed recently the military so due to his political involvement with har- and opposition with this opposition group. He was targeted. At that time. It was in two thousand five. I was eighteen years old. He was arrested and then two months later the entire family was arrested. My mom my sister my brother and meet and after two months of close trial within the prison without having legal counsel or access to legal representations appeal we was sentenced to seven years in my father was sentenced to forty seven years. We had to spend almost seven years in prison and we were released in two thousand twelve with the political opening in at that time in two thousand eleven along with other six hundred twenty three political prisoner through the presidential. Amnesty occurs understand. Why the military would target your father. Why did they target. The whole family is a great question so they talk the whole family because the hated my father more than other politicians because of his identity be in a row hinge although other political activists wear targeted but the target against their populations has been there since early ninety s. We believe part of the reason behind what an anti of family in prison was due to our identity and one of the charge was the immigration act so basically they were saying that moving from raquin state too young goal within the country one state to another state it's violation of law but there has been no law that prevented but they were practising like local directive and all of which were confidential and they sent us jail so part of the charges was that may gration act and the other charge. Was that political act. Which in those days five day the national security act to the military focus on the hendra. What was there in the story relationship or the ideology ethnicity said something. Where on costa was the ambassador. Got it contract work with the church in trying to find ways to help real hindrance clearly was very deep austerity from the the an mardika. That's another great question. I think a lot of people try to understand when we look at the repressions than prosecutions and human rights violations in denmark we also need to understand psyche the ideology of the military institution itself. The burma's institution was born during the independence movement before nineteen ninety five in one thousand nine hundred forty two appeared our of strong burmese nationalism to fight against british colony. But then ever since we've got independence in nineteen forty eight the military institutions felt. They are entitled to the country than they should be seen as guardians of the nations. But then with this political change leads started to feel losing their power. We have an internal coup in one thousand nine hundred fifty eight under this parliamentary democracy and then we have actual coup in one thousand nine hundred sixty two by a general they win. Who was part of the independence movement so since one thousand nine hundred sixty to the military has become more aggressive and their ideology has shifted to. What's a more buddhist ideology from the solely like or anti colonial ideology so they have to trust long as a protector of not only nations but also buddhism and but also booms majority burman populations with this ideology. They created an image among the military individuals and institutions that the nation's belong to their buddhism and the nation's belong to the ethnically burman people group which is majority group indian show basically very systematically promoted buddhist nationalist ideology and with this ideology they.
"myanmar" Discussed on Today, Explained
"John you talked about over eight hundred people dying in the wake of these protests yet somehow people in myanmar are still optimistic. Why Because i think this is something where they feel like. There's nothing really to lose. Which is maybe doesn't sound very optimistic. But there is this idea of everybody is coming together to defeat a common enemy which is right now the myanmar military and this idea that they could achieve or create. Something that has never been created before in myanmar. And i do think there is the sense of like well else. Can we do. And so there really is no other option but to sort of embrace this very uncertain future and push forward and at the same time there are also some really remarkable and positive developments. I would say you know. Mars very ethnically diverse country but ethnic and religious minorities have often faced discrimination racism and sometimes downright brutality at the hands of the myanmar government and the myanmar military. And you're seeing a real reckoning with that in myanmar right now as it is also plotting its future and it's really kind of remarkable to see. Have we ever seen anything like this. Before where you have various ethnic groups coming together working towards a common cause in myanmar yet. We actually have. Which is what makes this also very interesting. So in the past democracy protests that are seen most notably in the late nineteen eighties and early nineties where students led a pro democracy movement. The military kinda followed a similar playbook where it began to crack down and many of these students and protestors fled to sort of the borderlands of and which are often controlled in some cases by ethnic armed organizations many of which had been fighting the myanmar government our military and those ethnic organizations and their civil arms took in those protesters and sort of gave them shelter and protection but also kind of helped train them and at the same time that that happened. When myanmar's were to became a quasi democracy a lot of those ethnic groups were not included in the conversation or the development of democracy. But we're seeing the same thing happened now where many of these protesters and these students and these professionals who are protesting against the military are now also feeling that they're unsafe that they're under attack from the military and so they're seeking haven in these areas many of which are controlled by these ethnic armed organizations. Where they're getting food and shelter and they're also in some cases learning how to fight. They're they're learning how to use weapons. They're preparing for possible warfare. And so you see this alliance which is born out of this joint opposition to the our military and it is somewhat born out of necessity but there's also again this hope for creating a more democratic and equal future for myanmar. Can you talk about some of these groups that are on the border regions of myanmar. That have basically been in conflict with the military for a long time and are now taking in some of these protesters. Yes oh for example in the caution state. There's been an insurgent movement that's been at war with the myanmar military on and off for decades of fighting for their independence chin or a very strong rebel group own hierarchy and their own army. They present quite formidable opposition to the ma'am authorities. There's also the karen people who've basically been at civil war since the creation of the country. We have fought against them for so many years. So we know that myanmar will not give us equality easily now only the karen but other ethnicities too so we have to fight for rights but if we cannot make peace in our time it will be up to the next generation and so those places to it's worth keeping in mind or under attack by the military. These are not exactly safe havens. They are being bombed and shelled and many people civilians are being displaced on some for example across the border in thailand. So these are very precarious places right. Now they're not exactly safe but they feel safer for people who are in opposition to the military because you have you know like minded people again who are all united for this common. Cause what is the main reason. These groups give for fighting for independence. Are they frustrated. With the amount of power the military has and is a slept pro democracy effort or is it something else. A lot of the ethnic armed organizations each have sort of specific goals or aims. Many of them are fighting for greater autonomy or independence on but they're also just fighting for their survival. You know some of these groups have been brutalized and have been discriminated against and so they're sort of standing up for their own interests in what is really happening or what has happened because of the the coup in myanmar is that a lot of the burmese majority who were removed from these armed struggles on. Who didn't even really understand them. Or maybe thought these ethnic groups were sort of out to advance their own interests now very much realize that these ethnic groups are part of military's pattern of of brutality. And so you know it's sort of this idea of like oh you know now. They're coming for me and so you're seeing this. Recognition of what many of these ethnic minorities and religious minorities have gone through in me and mar and that realization is kind of dawning on the broader population. Which is why you're seeing this unity. Hi this is. Nissan louis and activists and co founder of the free range a collision in network ruin the activists and friend of hinduja. I am based in jumpy.

I can't imagine she'd have any role indicates going forward unless there's a extrordinary reversal within myanmar In terms of the political situation but this points to the other big questions that the coup raises. I think which are will. Myanmar even continued to participate in the case So that's a big question in some ways the mr was. I wouldn't say praised exactly. But i think it was seen as a good thing that myanmar did show up for the provisional measures hearing is engaged in the case is there to defend itself. It's always a bad thing in my view when when a state decides not to appear at the ic j. or in other high profile interstate arbitrations so the most famous examples of that at the ic jr. the are relatively old now but the tehran hostage is case back in nineteen eighty And then the nicaragua case in the nineteen eighties where the. Us chose not to appear. After they lost at the jurisdictional phase and in both of those cases the those states ended up losing on the merits whether or not that's because they decided not to appear. His is a different question.

"myanmar" Discussed on KCRW
"Go Slash black freedom. It's 8 22. It's morning edition from NPR News. I'm Steve Inskeep, and I'm the wheel King. Good Morning, Me and Mars Military ruled that country for almost 50 years in 2015, a Democratic election brought on song Souci, who'd peacefully fought against military rule to power and then this week, the military took power back in a coup. And Souci has been detained. Aaron Connolly is an analyst at the International Institute for Strategic Studies. He's on the line with us from Singapore. Good morning, Aaron. Good morning. Well, were there any warning signs this coup was coming about a week ago, The military started to make threats that if the civilian government didn't take its issues, with November election for which it had provided no evidence More seriously than it would consider taking power. It seemed to step back from that threat on a couple of occasions, and then on Monday morning, it arrested key civilian leaders. But it was really only about a week ago that most people in Myanmar and most Myanmar specialists overseas started to believe that the military was serious about taking back power. What is the military claiming happened in this election? They claim that there were irregularities with voter lists in the election, particularly in ethnic areas, and that if the election voter lists were scrutinized more closely than that, they would have had a chance of winning more seats in the national legislature. But again they haven't provided any evidence for those claims. Okay, So you're skeptical of the claim that there was something wrong with the election. What's the relationship between Souci and the generals who now detain her? It's been a touchy relationship over time. Of course, they detained her for many years from 1990 until 2011 releasing her on a couple of occasions. But then she appeared to be trying to build a more solid relationship with them. After she took power in 2016, at least control over the civilian government military maintain control over the three key ministries, the Ministry of Defense Home Affairs Order affairs and also all the security forces. At times, she appeared to be trying to build a working relationship with them. But ultimately that foundered when they refused to respect her ambitions, particularly to become president, which they had outlawed under the Constitution that they wrote in 2008. Okay, so she lost the General's has she also lost the civilians? What, to ordinary people there. Think of her Well. She won the last election. Her party that nationally for democracy, won the last election in November in a landslide. She remains incredibly popular in Myanmar. And that's likely to continue. There's no change to that. What do you envision will happen over the next couple of days and weeks? Will there be any kind of push within the country or outside the country to release her to end the could give power back to people have been democratically elected? It's still really unclear. There was one statement that was released on one of her Facebook pages yesterday that suggested that before she was detained, she had called people out onto the streets. But then there were other members of her party. You said that that statement was inauthentic. There are some who would prefer to see street demonstrations against this. They believe that that might reverse the result of this coup. On the other hand, there are those who remember what happened in 1988 when people came out onto the streets following a military coup, then on hundreds, possibly thousands of people died in the violence. After the military sought to suppress those demonstrations. Myanmar was ruled by the military for decades. Is there a fear that the country could be headed back in that direction? Yeah, Absolutely. The military says that it's only going to take back power for one year and then it's going to hold elections and return power to a civilian government. But it might not necessarily adhere to that timeline. It believes that if it removes on since achieve from politics that it could begin to win elections again, But it's not really clear that that's the case and it's not clear that people will cooperate.

What are the implications outside of Myanmar in Southeast Asia more broadly well yesterday, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, which is the regional block in this region. I'm in Singapore issued a statement calling for return to what they said was normalcy and number of Southeast Asian diplomats have said to me on background that, but they're looking for his return to the status quo as of Sunday evening, That's a relatively strong statement for as Ian And the U. N Security Council is scheduled to hold a meeting on the situation later today. The UK is currently in the presidency of the Security Council and has tended to focus on me and Mara issues when it's held the presidency. So I would anticipate quite a bit of international pressure both from within the region and around the globe on the military to at the very least, truncate the period in which it intends to hold power and perhaps to shape the nature of the government that would follow after the military hands back power.

"So is Myanmar conducting a genocidal campaign against for him to Muslims a court ruling this morning in the Hague is the net is the next step toward answering that question the international court of justice heard a case brought by the African country of Gambia on behalf of an organization of Muslim majority countries that accuses Myanmar of committing genocide and let's turn to reporter Michael Sullivan who's been following the story for some time he joins us from Thailand hi Michael David so can you explain this court decision in the Hague to us and and what it means well first of all I think we need to make clear that this is in no way a final decision on the allegations of genocide that could take years but this was about provisional measures requested by Gambia basically a restraining order compelling me on Martin not to abuse the roving to remain in the on Mars were kind state and the court granted several of those measures today and said that the real hang out in the end mark are still in danger and should be a protected group so these measures will apply in theory to the couple hundred thousand Rohingya denied the most basic freedoms including freedom of movement many living what amounts to detention camps and also compelled Myanmar to preserve evidence of any alleged crimes committed during the two thousand seventeen accidents including rape murder and torture measures don't really help the roughly seven hundred and forty thousand row and go who fled the brutal Myanmar military crackdown in twenty seventeen and are now living in camps in Bangladesh and probably will be for quite sometime so this this ruling today comes just over a month after Myanmar's defective leader uncensored she went personally to the Hague to to defend our country and its actions I mean did did did that just not have any impact on on the court as they thought about what they believe is happening here it didn't seem to I mean she went and in fact I asked them to drop the case claiming that no genocide or genocidal acts had taken place she did admit that in her words a disproportionate military force may have been used against the roving bands of billions killed which basically said our government was investigating these claims and ask the court to allow that process to play out and in fact earlier this week the Myanmar government panel appointed to look into such allegations basically came to the same conclusion probable war crimes committed by the military but no genocide well I mean is name are likely to go further and comply with whatever provisional measures this court is is calling for given that Myanmar has his stone walled in the past when it's come to this yeah a good question I mean ended knowledge is the authority of the court and therefore is obliged to cooperate and the time frame is four months to comply if that doesn't happen the matter could be sent to the UN security council for further action but Myanmar has a friend there China which would probably block any effort to make Myanmar comply even if it wasn't satisfying the terms of the provisional measures that would so taking all this together I means is today's ruling just mostly symbolic or or is there more to it I think it's a little of both I mean you have to remember the international criminal court is also looking hard at several senior members of Myanmar's military for their role in what happened in twenty seventeen now you've got this case with the international court of justice in this proceeding and measures are being taken to address the plight of their hang up so that's progress yeah reporter Michael Sullivan thanks so much Michael.

"I'm Carol hills. Two Reuters journalists are released in Myanmar after spending more than five hundred days in jail for their reporting on the Rwanda crisis. This activist is familiar with the prison where they were held and he's not like the prison in Europe oriented state. It's also how the documentary surviving R Kelly encouraged many Ethiopian women to speak up about the abuse. They suffered from the older men in their lives. Water pick some stories that we got as bid people or they're on coal or someone who's twenty thirty four years older than them. Plus the enduring legacy of Argentina's Abe Perron on the one hundred anniversary of her birth. Those stories and more ahead on the world. I'm Carol hills. And this is the world thousands of prisoners were released from jail in Myanmar today. It's a custom around this time of year when the country celebrates its new year among the people released were to journalists for Reuters while loan and Chow so who were arrested in two thousand seventeen for breaking Myanmar's official secrets act I'm so happy for them. However, we also have to remember that from the first place this journalists should not be arrested, and they shouldn't spend more than a year inside the prison. That's Rohana activist way way new will hear more from her just ahead while loan and chose imprisonment drew attention to the ongoing persecution of Rohingya Muslims that began in two thousand seventeen the world's Patrick win explains. How the reporters got in trouble with Myanmar government day helped to uncover a massacre? Ten Rohana men were killed by soldiers and villagers and dumped into a grave on these two journalists help. To expose that it made the army look bad. And so then they were contacted by someone within security forces. Who said, hey, I've gotta show you something. They went out to meet that person, the person handed them a sheet of papers. And then within minutes, they were arrested for having secret documents in their possession and these two journalists Wallone, he's thirty three choice. Oh, ooh. Twenty nine. What is behind these releases the court said you're pardoned, but it didn't say you're innocent. And I think there's a really big difference there. I think what me and Mars government is looking for from. This is a big hug, you know, something to look like they're sticking up for human rights. There are dozens of other journalists and bloggers still in prison under baseless charges in also the government of Yanmar still thinks in general journalists should apologize for the way that they've covered the brutal ethnic purge of this Rohingya minority group one of the most persecuted groups in the world, they think that the way the journalists have covered this. Atrocity has been unfair. So I I don't necessarily see a big turnaround in the government's disposition towards journalist or the situation as a whole who are these six thousand five hundred twenty prisoners who are being released today. I mean, what do they represent their from all sorts of walks of life. This tends to happen. Every year every other year and Yanmar they'll do a mass pardoning of prisoners normally people who are in there for more garden variety crimes. So, you know, you'll have this mass outpouring of prisoners, and it makes the government look good, and they probably need to release the strain in their prisons. Anyway. Should we assume that unsung Succi is behind it? I mean in terms of the release of these two journalists, I don't know exactly what prompted these guys to make the list of the pardoned. I can't tell you that there's been enormous pressure. These two reporters recently got the Pulitzer prize even in the US State Department under President Trump, you don't think of them as pushing hard for the rights of journalists. But they have spoken up about these two journalists Mike Pence has brought this up to the government. Nikki Haley, the former US ambassador to the UN. She has pushed back on this. What is actually the sort of twisted catch twenty two?.
