Press Statement

The United States is deeply concerned by the Burmese authorities' decision today to convict U.S. citizen Kyaw Zaw Lwin (aka Nyi Nyi Aung) on politically motivated charges. We consider these actions unjustified. We continue to urge the Burmese regime to release him and allow him to return home to the United States.
