Reporters without Borders Acknowledges Blogger Jotman for Burma Coverage

In blog competition, Reporters Without Borders gives special prize to Burmese blogger

Reporters Without Borders gave its “Special Prize” to Burmese blogger Jotman in the German public broadcaster Deutsche Welle’s international weblog competition, the “BOBs - Best of the Blogs,” awarded in Berlin yesterday.

“This is an English-language blog about current events in Burma and Thailand,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Located on the border between the two countries, Jotman is one of he most interesting sources on the Burmese crisis. He has, for example, an interview with the leader of the underground army formed by Burmese students. We are proud to award him this prize.”


Jotman has gone where no Thai or foreign reporter dares to go.

I am grateful for his courage and for his coverage. He deserves all the accolades that he receives.
