Via The Irrawaddy: Dunkley Accused of Assault
Dunkley’s arrest last week was not because he overstayed his visa, which is due to expire on Feb. 27, but was directly linked with the reported assault case, according to inside sources at the newspaper.
Ross Dunkley, the publisher of The Phnom Penh Post, has been arrested by Myanmar authorities in Yangon on suspicion of violating the country’s immigration laws.
In a statement on Saturday, David Armstrong, chairman of Post Media Ltd, said Dunkley, who is also CEO and editor-in-chief of the weekly Myanmar Times, was arrested on Thursday under Section 13(1) of Myanmar’s Immigration (Emergency Provisions) Act after returning from a business trip to Japan.
So was Ross Dunkley, the Phnom Penh Post publisher, was arrested under an immigration case or with the reported assault case?
