Fantastic news that Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo are free. Must not forget 300+ political prisoners in jail or facing trial. Aung San Suu Kyi has the power to free them and repeal repressive laws. Take action here. https://t.co/3DpjQMAhQA

Brilliant news that jailed @Reuters journalists Wa Lone & Kyaw Soe Oo have been released in Myanmar today
BUT… do not forget they should never have been jailed in the first place & that Suu Kyi’s gov’t could have stopped their prosecution at any time. They chose not to https://t.co/aVNNOp22AG

Finally, @Reuters journalists Wa Lone & Kyaw Soe Oo have been released.
They should have never been arrested, much less imprisoned.

Wa Lone to media outside jail: „I’m really happy and excited to see my family and my colleagues. I can’t wait to go to my newsroom.“
