Japanese journalist Toru Kubota sentenced to another three years in prison in Burma

Burma’s Justice has sentenced this Wednesday to another three years in prison Toru Kubota, a Japanese journalist who was already sentenced last week to ten years in prison for sedition and violation of telecommunications laws.

Now, the journalist and documentary filmmaker has been found guilty of violating the immigration law, so the sentence provides for another three years in prison in addition to the previous sentence, according to reports in the daily ‘Asahi’.

The 26-year-old was arrested in Rangoon by Burmese junta forces last July when charges were brought against him for filming anti-junta protests after he entered the country without a visa.
