Kamaryut Township Court in Yangon yesterday adjourned its trial of Australian businessman Ross Dunkley, co-founder of the Myanmar Times, who had submitted an application for bail.

The court said it would rule on the application during its next hearing, scheduled for March 17, according to a statement issued yesterday by David Armstrong, chairman of Post Media Ltd in Phnom Penh.

Ross Dunkley, also publisher of The Phnom Penh Post, was arrested on February 10 and charged with immigration and criminal offences.

He will remain in custody at Insein prison pending next week’s ruling on his bail application, Armstrong said.
