Filmmaker charged


A Myanmar judge yesterday charged filmmaker Min Htin Ko Ko Gyi for Facebook posts he made about the powerful military, meaning he will stand trial, Reuters reported.

The director, who runs a human rights film festival, was detained three months ago after a complaint from an army officer that listed 10 of his Facebook posts.

In the posts he criticised the military’s political role and Myanmar’s 2008 constitution, which was drawn up by the former ruling military and which civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi is attempting to amend.
