  The family of General Dantai said that Dantai would be arrested while reporting for the BBC in front of the court. It is understood that the Mizma News Agency and four other Myanmar media were revoked by the Myanmar Propaganda Department on March 8. Therefore, Dantai would be reporting for the BBC at that time.

  In addition, reporters from the Associated Press and many other media were arrested while reporting on the protests and were charged with violating Article 505 of the Myanmar Criminal Law. Article 505 of the Burmese Criminal Law stipulates that if the intention to incite the public or certain groups of people to undermine the stability of the federal government or the country constitutes a crime, it will be sentenced to a maximum of two years’ imprisonment or a fine or both. (Headquarters reporter Wang Yuezhou)
