Another execution in Burma

May I borrow a text published in several blog cboxes (, :

Coporal Aung Naing from Sit Tway-based battalion has been sentenced to death after he pointed out at his battalion's-in-charge that it is not media such as BBC, DVB giving out false news but rather, they are informing the world about the true situation in Burma. Coporal Aung Naing was immediately arrested and sent to high martial court for execution. All his possessions have been confiscated and his family has been asked to return to their hometown.

Another interesting blog : John Pilger has been saying the same thing over the last ten years, with movies, articles, etc. It is impressive to see how an article wrote in 2000 (Burma in the balance) could have been written today, or a movie of 1996 (Burma - Land of Fear) show the same images as today. Very interesting; by the way, he won a large number of awards
(International Actual Award for Risk Journalism, Barcelona, Spain, 1996; Bronze Gold Special Jury Award, 'Film & Video Production division', WorldFest-Charleston, 1996; Award for Best Factual Programme, RTS Midland Centre Awards, Birmingham, 1996; Gold Apple in the category 'Politics: Social organisations in other lands', 1997 NEMN Apple Awards, Oakland, 1997; the updated version won a Gold Award in the 'Film & Video Production division', WorldFest-Houston, 1999)
