A Myanmar court on Friday freed dozens of jailed students, in the first wave of detainee releases after Aung San Suu Kyi pledged that the release of activists and political prisoners would be the first priority of her new government. 

"You 69 are all freed now without charges," said Chit Myat, township judge at the Tharrawaddy court, ending the prosecution of those students over an education protest that was crushed in a violent police crackdown in March 2015.
