"Everyone in this town knows (Jotman)"

This weekend I had a brief chat with Zaw Nyein Latt, who chairs the Burma Political Prisoner's Union. I had not seen ZNL since I interview him (See Parts I and II) .

The first thing Zaw asked me was: "Do you know someone who won an award?"

I jotted six letters on a page in my notebook, and pushed it across the table.

"Of course I know the name," Zaw said in a matter-of-fact tone. "Everyone in this town knows him," he added.

This was news to me.

Zaw said the VOA interview had been much-talked-about.


  1. Nice call, Jotman : Greetings from Vienna , Austria ( BLog4Burma ) !

  2. Grüße zu Ihnen und danken Ihnen.
