UNESCO Renews Call for Burmese Journalist's Release


The head of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization is renewing his call for the government of Burma to release activist and journalist U Win Tin, who has been in prison for 18 years.

UNESCO Director-General Koichiro Matsuura said Friday that this is a sad anniversary marking U Win Tin's arrest in 1989.

He said U Win Tin is now an old man and his health has deteriorated. He urged Burmese authorities to show compassion and free him.

The 77-year-old journalist has served 18 years of a 20-year prison sentence on various charges related to his political activism.

The Burma Media Association says U Win Tin has repeatedly refused to sign a government document requiring him to give up political activities in exchange for his freedom.
