Myanmar Court rules Danny Fenster to remain behind bars
A Metro Detroit journalist jailed for the past five months in Myanmar will stay behind bars.
A court has denied Danny Fenster bail and added a charge of associating with opposition groups. The southeast Asian country has been in disarray following a military takeover early this year.
Fenster is the managing editor of independent news outlet Frontier Myanmar. He was arrested trying to board a plane back to the U.S. in May. There is hope that Fenster could be released as Bill Richardson, a former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, is in Myanmar to discuss humanitarian issues with the ruling junta.
