Reuters reporters convictions appealed in Myanmar’s highest court

Lawyers for the two Reuters journalists sentenced to seven-year prison terms in Myanmar have filed an appeal with the country’s highest court seeking to overturn their convictions. Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo were arrested in December 2017 for violating Myanmar’s Official Secrets Act. The duo contend they were framed over their reporting on the security forces’ crackdown of the Muslim ethnic minority.
