Fight for justice for Myanmar reporter Aung Naing

The BBC's Jonah Fisher reports from Mon State in Myanmar on the ongoing fight for justice for Burmese freelance journalist Aung Naing - better known as Par Gyi - who was shot dead in army custody in October 2014.

Last year his body was exhumed from a shallow grave. A post mortem found he had five gunshot wounds and may have been beaten before he died.

The army said he was working for a rebel army and that they shot him trying to escape.

Now it has emerged that a military court put two soldiers on trial for the murder and acquitted them in secret.
