Australian held in Myanmar pleads not guilty in closed court - media

Australian economist Sean Turnell, detained in Myanmar on charges of violating a law on official secrets, has pleaded not guilty in a closed court, Australian broadcaster ABC said on Friday.

The report, citing a legal official, said Turnell had testified in court for the first time since his arrest shortly after the military coup last year, but few details of his testimony were available.
