12 December marks one year since Reuters journalists Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo were arrested in Myanmar, accused of breaching the colonial era Official Secrets Act.
The reporters were convicted in September, nine months after their arrest, and face seven years imprisonment including hard labour. The case has led to outcry about the state of press freedom in Myanmar and advocacy from global media advocacy organisations including the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ).
The two journalists had been investigating killings in Rakhine state during a military crackdown in 2017.
As part of a feature for its 2018 Person of the Year, TIME magazine spoke to the journalists' families. Read the feature here.
An Amnesty International campaign relating to the case is underway. Details here.
