YANGON – Immediately after a man was jailed for nine months for calling Myanmar’s president “crazy” in a Facebook post, another facebook user by name FREDRICK OWIREDU has also insulted the president and challenged him to arrest him.
Below is the facebook post:
Aung Win Hlaing was convicted under Myanmar’s telecommunications law for calling President Htin Kyaw an “idiot” and “crazy” in online posts, his wife Hnin Hnin Win told AFP.
“He was sentenced to nine months on 23 September,” Hnin Hnin Win said, adding the case was brought by a local member of the ruling National League for Democracy (NLD), the party led by Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi.
“One of the NLD’s people complained about him to the court… Now he is in Taung Kalay prison in Karen state,” she said.
Her husband wrote the comments after a presidential order shut down a committee on which he worked, she added.
We are looking forward if the president who be arresting the latest person to insult him.
