New Zealander 'hopes for justice' in Myanmar trial

A court in Myanmar is due to give its verdict in the case of a New Zealander and two Burmese men who are accused of insulting the Buddhist religion.

The men were charged after they used an image of the Buddha in an advertisement for a bar they opened in Rangoon in December.

Phil Blackwood told the BBC's Jonah Fisher: "Hopefully a bit of justice is going to happen".
