Frenchman arrested for flying drone over Myanmar parliament

YANGON – A French tourist has been arrested for flying a drone near Myanmar’s parliament in the capital Naypyitaw, the French embassy and local police confirmed on Monday (Feb 11), under a law that could see him imprisoned for up to three years.

The man, named by police as 27-year-old Arthur Desclaux, tried to fly a drone over the government building, which is illegal in Myanmar.

Three journalists and their driver were jailed in 2017 for the same offence.
