Naw Ohn Hla handed additional sentence 'with hard labour'
Incarcerated political activist Naw Ohn Hla has been handed an additional six-month sentence for allegedly disturbing religious
assembly eight years ago.
The charge relates to Naw Ohn Hla's 'Tuesday prayer sessions', a weekly silent protest held in 2007 calling for the release of Aung
San Suu Kyi who was then under house arrest by the ruling military junta.
Naw Ohn Hla is currently incarcerated for staging a demonstration outside the Chinese embassy against the Latpadaung copper mining
project. She and six others were protesting the death of Latpadaung villager Khin Win, who died of a gunshot wound to the head
during a confrontation with the police at the mining site.
