5 Myanmar men fined for Rohingya calendar

AFP

Five Myanmar men have been fined under a restrictive printing law for publishing a calendar that described the country's persecuted Muslim Rohingya as a recognised ethnic minority, police said Tuesday, AFP from Yangon. The men were arrested over the weekend in Yangon and fined $800 each on Monday after pleading guilty to an offence that carries up to two years in prison. Myanmar's government does not recognise the term Rohingya and insists the minority group does not face official persecution. "They admitted and confessed very fast. So the court charged them one million kyat (around $800) each," Khin Maung Let, chief police officer at Pazundaung township, told the news agency.
