Contempt of Court in Burma: Release the two lawyers illegally held

abolish contempt of court in Burma: defend the rights of lawyers


In November 2008 two Supreme Court lawyers in Burma, U Aung Thein and U Khin Maung Shein, were convicted to four months' imprisonment for contempt of court because they submitted a letter to the judge on behalf of their clients, that the clients "no longer had faith in the judicial process". This is a short video by the Asian Human Rights Commission regarding this case and the Supreme Court of Burma.
