Burmese court sentences whistleblowers to death

A court in Rangoon, Burma, has sentenced two government employees to death for leaking information about official visits to North Korea and Russia. The Democratic Voice of Burma reports that Win Naing Kyaw and Thura Kyaw now face execution. The All Burma Monks Alliance (ABMA) called the death sentences “cruel” and “political” acts by the government that “will not solve the basic problems faced by the nation.”
