Article 19 "Universal Declaration of Human Rights"

"Everyone has right to freedom of opinion and expression;
This right include freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers."

On 10th Nov, Monday, my friend, blogger Nay Phone Latt has sentenced to 20 years and six months imprisonment by a court in Rangoon’s Insein Prison.
Regarding with this, I still feel so upset till now and not comfortable to read some wrong information in some media mentioned his past actions both of his blog and real life.

Among them, regarding with The Committee to Protect Bloggers(CPB)'s gutting to learn about him, I drop comment as below:
Nice to know this committee to protect bloggers.

But I want to clarify that some point is wrong publishing.
1) He was convicted of contravening a public law act by posting a cartoon of the head of the Burmese military junta on his blog
Melody: No, it is not correct. Not on blog, may be in his email.

2) In September 2007 during the uprising, Nay Phone Latt’s blogs provided the world with information about what was going on in Burma
Melody: No, it is also not correct. He never do like that in his blog. He is only artist/author who did write poems, articles about his opinions and ideas without interference through his blog.

We just know him as ordinary youth but he has been to be NLD youth member once. And he never persuade any bloggers about politics. This electronic act is really really unfair treatment upon youth and all Myanmar people who are in IT field. This is my point of view without personal.
