Burma arrests Australian newspaper publisher
Published on February 12, 2011
Rangoon – Burmese authorities have arrested the Australian publisher of the Myanmar Times, an English-language weekly, sources confirmed Saturday.
Ross Dunkley was arrested at his Rangoon home Thursday on charges of overstaying his visa and possession of marijuana, a Myanmar Times employee said.
Dunkley is a well-known media figure in South-East Asia, having founded the Myanmar Times after launching Vietnam’s first English-language weekly in the early 1990s, and also owns the Phnom Penh Post.
He is being held in Insein Jail, near the old capital Rangoon.//DPA
