Myanmar authorities have sentenced a model to six years in prison after she posted content on OnlyFans.
34-year-old Nang Mwe San, formerly a doctor, was found guilty of distributing nudes and receiving payment for them through the UK-based subscription service.
Authorities charged her for posting content “harming culture and dignity” under the Electronics Transactions Law, according to the BBC.
Nang Mwe San had previously attended anti-coup protests against Myanmar’s military junta.
In 2019, she had her medical license revoked by the country’s medical council after she posted photos of her modeling bikini and lingerie to her social media.
Nang Mwe San told the New York Times at the time that she was made to sign an agreement to delete her modeling images from Facebook, and when she didn’t, the council revoked her license.
The council said that she had violated the agreement and “traditional Myanmar culture,” citing a rule that gives it the power to revoke the license of anyone unable to carry out their duties “in accordance with the qualifications of a medical practitioner,” according to the New York Times.
Her latest trial happened in Insein Prison Court, where several political prisoners have been sent to since the military junta took power.
Nang Mwe San’s mother had been unaware of her daughters situation until the authorities announced her sentence on Wednesday Sep. 28.
Other models have been jailed for protesting the military coup such as Paing Takhon, one of Myanmar’s most popular celebrities.
However, she is believed to be the only model to be jailed under the pretense of posting nudes on OnlyFans.
The military seized power in a coup in February 2021 and declared a year-long state of emergency after accusing the country’s leader Aung San Suu Kyi and her party of fraud in Myanmar’s election in November.
Since then, more than 2,324 people have been killed and 15,683 people arrested, charged or sentenced as part of the military crackdown on protesters demonstrating against the coup, according to the Assistance Association for Political Prisoners (AAPP).
