The AJF joins The Committee to Protect Journalists’ call for the immediate release of the AP’s Thein Zaw who, arrested in Yangon whilst covering the ongoing conflict in Myanmar, has now been in custody since Saturday 27th February, 2021.

The AJF seeks to work diplomatically with countries in the region to ensure the public’s right to know is upheld. As a journalist, and without evidence of wrongdoing, Zaw must be released and allowed to continue covering the protests.
