Burmese in the Facebooksphere

From the Irrawaddy:

Kachin aid worker Patrick Khum Jaa Lee, who was arrested over a Facebook post deemed to defame the Burma Army, was sentenced on Friday to six months in prison minus time served, just hours after a presidential amnesty freed dozens of others viewed as prisoners of conscience.

The sentence was handed down by Justice Kyi Sein at Rangoon’s Hlaing Township Court on Friday afternoon.

Khum Jaa Lee, 43, was arrested in October of last year and charged under Burma’s Telecommunications Law for allegedly sharing a photo of a man dressed in traditional Kachin attire stomping on an image of Burma Army chief Snr-Gen Min Aung Hlaing.
