Australians Christa Avery and Matthew O'Kane freed from house arrest in Myanmar - ABC News

An Australian couple has been freed from house arrest in Myanmar and allowed to leave the country without charge.

Business consultants Christa Avery and her husband Matthew O'Kane were refused permission to leave Myanmar last month when they were about to board a flight home.

The country has been in turmoil since a February military coup ousted elected leader Aung San Suu Kyi, with violence between anti-coup protesters and armed forces rising in recent weeks. 

"I am, of course, incredibly relieved to have been released and to be on my way home with my husband, Matt," Ms Avery said in a statement.

"Even though I knew that I had done nothing wrong, it was very stressful being held under house arrest for 2 weeks."

More to come.
