Unity 5 lawyer Robert Sann Aung
As an activist U Robert Sann Aung has seen many jails from the inside. His opposition to the former military regime landed him ten years in the “black house”. He began practising law in 1981 but his licence was revoked in 1993 and it was another nineteen years, until July 9, 2012, before he was allowed to practise again. U Robert Sann Aung has since appeared in more than 60 cases, most of which have been political, with the most prominent being the case against four journalists and the chief executive officer of Unity Journal.
