Foreign governments and their hatred for journalists isn’t exactly a secret. Though the recent attacks on journalists and opposition leaders has garnered international eyeballs.

Just hours after a Belarusian blogger was yanked off of a Ryanair plane to be placed into a government torture chamber — a Myanmar based journalist has now met the same fate.

According to Frontier Myanmar, one of the country’s top independent news sites — its top editor Danny Fenster, 37, has been taken by the local regime and placed into a notorious prison. He is being held at Insein Prison a notorious place where “traitors” are usually sent.

Fenster is the fourth snatched by the now military ruler Myanmar since the coup earlier this year.

Locally a total of 80 have been arrested though many of them have not been legally charged. From what we understand, they’re being held regardless pending the charges and or trial (though the certainty of both remains unknown.)

His news site released the following statement online within minutes of the arrest. Per the site, he had been attempting to take a flight out of the country and into Myanmar.
