Myanmar: `Dissident monk to be charged’
Yangon: State media in Myanmar say a dissident monk who helped lead Myanmar`s 2007 anti-government uprising is facing fresh legal action.
The state-run New Light of Myanmar says Shin Gambira is facing charges of "squatting" illegally in a government-sealed monastery and breaking into two others.
The 33-year-old monk was one of the leaders of the so-called Saffron Revolution, a 2007 uprising led by Buddhist monks against the then-ruling military junta.
Gambira was detained then, shortly after a military crackdown on protesters. He had been released on January 13 as part of a mass prisoner release that was hailed as a sign of Myanmar`s new government`s willingness to make reforms.
