Glamorous former doctor is jailed for six years in Myanmar

A former doctor has been imprisoned for six years in Myanmar for “undermining culture and dignity” with her OnlyFans photos.

Nang Mwe San, a model and former doctor, was charged two weeks ago, according to military authorities.

Ms San was found guilty of using the sites to distribute nude photos and videos for a fee under Section 33(A) of the country’s Electronic Transactions Act.

She is believed to be the first person in Myanmar to be imprisoned for being an OnlyFans model.

Since Ms. San lived in North Dagon Township in Yangon, where martial law is in effect, those accused of crimes are tried in military courts.

They are also denied rights such as a lawyer. The model’s trial took place at Insein Prison Court, the largest in Myanmar and where many political prisoners have recently been sent.

Ms San had been in contact with her mother in recent weeks, according to the BBC Myanmar Service.

But her mother had not known she was convicted until it was confirmed today by military media.

It comes after Ms San lost her medical license in 2019 for continuing to post racy photos of herself on Facebook despite warnings from the Myanmar Medical Council.

Ms San also posted photos of herself at an anti-military protest following the February 2021 coup.

Myanmar’s military coup in February 2021 caused widespread furor and as a result many protests took place.

The number of arrests since the coup has increased, with more than 15,600 detained, and includes lawmakers, activists, journalists and Ms Suu Kyi.

Authorities arrested another model, Thinzar Wint Kyaw, for protesting the coup and posting images on social media in August.

In October, she will be judged.

In addition, a freelance journalist working for the BBC saw her sentence increased by three years yesterday.

Journalist Htet Htet Kine was found guilty of making contact with a banned pro-democracy radio program and has already been sentenced to three years of hard labour.

She was convicted under new laws that criminalize comments that appear to spread “false news” about the military or instill fear.

Ms San had already made headlines when she had her medical license revoked in 2019 for continuing to post racy snaps on Facebook, despite warnings from the Myanmar Medical Council.  Pictured: Ms. San

The Political Prisoners Assistance Association watchdog group says more than 12,000 people remain in prison and that at least 2,322 political prisoners have been killed.

Elsewhere, former British ambassador to Myanmar Vicky Bowman and her husband were jailed for a year for breaking immigration laws.

But in Myanmar, their case is more likely to involve broader political concerns, as foreigners are rarely prosecuted in Myanmar for immigration offences.

Ms San, who became a doctor at the age of 22, quit practicing in 2017 to pursue her lifelong dream of being a model.  She said she was forced to face the council in January 2019, where she was told her photos went against Burmese tradition.  Pictured: One of the photos posted by Ms San

Ms San, who became a doctor at the age of 22, quit practicing in 2017 to pursue her lifelong dream of being a model.

She said she was forced to face the council in January 2019, where she was told her photos went against Burmese tradition.

Ms. San was forced to sign an agreement to remove the photos or risk losing her license.

After ignoring the order, his license was revoked on June 3, 2019.

“There’s so much sexism here,” Ms. San told The New York Times.

“They don’t want women in higher positions. And they judge women on what we wear. They don’t even want us to wear pants.

The model hit back at the decision in a pictured Facebook post, saying:

Ms San admitted she was ‘shocked’ and ‘sad’ by the decision, having worked hard to become a doctor.

“Did I dress in sexy outfits when I met my patients? Never,” she told Reuters.
