Comedian Zarganar Disappointed by News Agencies

Source: Dr Lun Swe

Zarganar on Saturday said that he felt let down by reporters who did not respect his requests to keep certain information from being published. He told a reporter from drlunswe.blogspot.com that certain off-the-record information he gave to reporters were published or broadcast, resulting in arrests of people whose names were mentioned. He also added that on one occasion, he had asked a news agency to keep the name of a monastery confidential, but the name was subsequently published, and this has in turn caused people to shy away from visiting the monastery, resulting in a loss of alms for the resident monks.

Zarganar, in recent days, has stopped granting interviews to most news agencies.
