69 political prisoners pardoned in Myanmar


Myanmar’s reformist President, Thein Sein, on Friday pardoned 69 political prisoners as part of a promise to free all such prisoners by the end of the year. Most of those freed are members of ethnic minorities, AP reported, citing Ye Aung, who is on the government’s political prisoner scrutiny committee. Critics say that people continue to be locked up for political offenses by the nominally civilian government.
