YANGON: Fellow journalists on Tuesday criticised the jailing of a local BBC reporter, saying the sentence could damage the reputation of Myanmar’s new democratic government. Nay Myo Lin, a journalist for BBC’s Myanmar-language service, was on Monday sentenced to three months in prison with hard labour for allegedly striking a policeman while covering a student rally in March.
