Burma: Conviction of Kyaw Zaw Lwin

Press Statement
Philip J. Crowley
Assistant Secretary, Bureau of Public Affairs
Washington, DC
February 10, 2010


The United States is deeply concerned by the Burmese authorities' decision today to convict U.S. citizen Kyaw Zaw Lwin (aka Nyi Nyi Aung) on politically motivated charges. We consider these actions unjustified. We continue to urge the Burmese regime to release him and allow him to return home to the United States.
