"On March 22, Than Htike Aung, a news editor with the independent media organization Mizzima, was also handed a two-year prison sentence for violating Section 505(a). Mizzima is among numerous independent outlets targeted by the regime. Authorities revoked Mizzima’s broadcast license and then raided its offices in Yangon shortly after the coup.
Aung was arrested by military police in March 2021 as he was covering a court case in Nay Pyi Taw, Myanmar’s capital. Months later he was charged with violating Section 505(a) for sharing a letter on Facebook protesting the military council’s announcement that it had revoked Mizzima’s license along with those of other media outlets. He will serve his sentence in Yamethin Prison in Myanmar’s Mandalay region, according to Mizzima."
