Citat

As Edward Gibbon put it in one of his most celebrated passages: "A victorious line of march had been prolonged from the Rock of Gibraltar to the banks of the Loire; the repetition of an equal space would have carried the Saracens to the confines of Poland and the Highlands of Scotland; the Rhine is not more impassable than the Nile, and the Arabian fleet might have sailed into the mouth of the Thames. Perhaps the interpretation of the Qur'an would now be taught in the schools of Oxford, and her pulpits might demonstrate to a circumcised people the truth of the Revelation of Mahomet."
"Although they say it is state secrete, it is not such an obvious case as far as we know. While walking towards democracy, such severe punishment to media people is too harsh. We don't like it. Regarding with media suppression, we cooperated each other. So, in accordance with the desire of media people, we are watching how they will respond to media people. We will cooperate with media people" said Jimmy from 88 Generation Peace and Open Society
"Such expressions are believed to damage the national security and interest according to the law. If no article had been written about these things, there wouldn't have been any offense. Such writing, according to the law, is automatically obvious that it damages the national security. Therefore, it is related with Section 3(1)(A)/9. According to the investigation results, they entered with the purpose to harm national security and interest. Being near there is related [with Section 3(1)(A)/9]. As U Tin San and Ko Lu Maw Naing also helped, they are related with Section 3(1)(A)/9. Therefore, I suggest the court that according to Section 3(1)(A) Sithu Soe, Yarzar Oo and Paing Thet Kyaw should be given relevant punishement" said the government legal officer
"The people who have been charged will be investigated through photo records. Since bail can made for this case, they will be released on bail after they have been arrested,” a senior police official from Yangon Regional Police Force told Eleven Media on Saturday night, on condition of anonymity."
