American journalist Danny Fenster was freed from prison in Myanmar on November 15, 2021, and is on his way home. Fenster had been sentenced only three days earlier to 11 years of hard labour by a Myanmar court that found him guilty of breaching immigration law, unlawful association and encouraging dissent. Officials from Myanmar’s ruling military junta said the journalist was “pardoned” before his release on “humanitarian grounds”, following negotiations with former US Ambassador to the UN Bill Richardson and two Japanese envoys.
