The Australian reports today that Nay Phone Latt, arrested in January of this year in a round up of activists following the September 2007 protests against the Burmese military junta, has been jailed for 20 years on account of his blogging activities. This draconian sentence is a clear indication of the lengths the regime is prepared to go to in order to prevent Burmese bloggers from getting information to the outside world. Time to give to Amnesty International.
