Bertil Lintner, reported on Myanmar since the 80s

I met with him last month during my fellowship.  It was the first time he was able to get into the Myanmar with an official visa.  Lintner was pretty excited about his first Myanmar book launch happening that day.    

It wasn't long ago that he was on the country's blacklist for his writing.

More about that day here:
