Hkun Lat & Minzayar Oo are finally free!
Oct 17, 2017 — Dear Signatories,
The two Myanmar photographers Hkun Lat and Minzayar Oo are finally free and are travelling back home. Your signatures have demonstrated much needed support. Many thanks again!
Some of you might wonder why the petition was never delivered. Let me explain briefly: There was a time and moment when I and legal experts thought to deliver this petition to Bangladeshi authorities. After careful evaluation of all information available, we however decided to keep quiet on the advocacy front when it became clear that things are beginning to move, i.e. when both were about to be released on bail. We have since kept quiet in order to not sabotage crucial efforts behind the scene.
I hope this explains and many thanks again,
Keep fighting for people power!
