Slingshot possession lands fisherman in jail

30 March 2012
A man in Irrawaddy Division’s Maubin township who petitioned President 
Thein Sein last year has been sentenced to one year in prison. 
Than Aye was seeking to allow local peasants to fish in waters leased 
by a businessman. He was sentenced after being charged with possessing 
a modified slingshot, which are capable of firing bicycle spokes and sharp objects.
