New Zealander 'disappointed' in Myanmar verdict
A New Zealander and two Burmese men have been found guilty of insulting religion in Myanmar over a poster promoting a drinks event depicting Buddha with headphones.
Philip Blackwood, who managed the VGastro Bar in Yangon, was arrested in December along with bar owner Tun Thurein and colleague Htut Ko Ko Lwin.
Phil Blackwood said as he was led out of court after the sentencing that he was "pretty disappointed" and that he had been given more than the maximum sentence.
