Is the American part of the junta political plan to hold Suu Kyi, 63, much longer since her 13-year house arrest will end on May 27? (read here...)
I saw the Nobel Peace laureate giving a speech in Rangoon (now Yangon) in 1989. Her National League for Democracy (NLD) party won a landslide election in 1990, only to be denied by the junta and she was arrested.
Apart from the United Nations, Asean should look into this matter and take a firm stand in dealing with the Yangon government. The people of Myanmar are in need of Suu Kyi, whom they regard as the only hope to bring about democracy to the country.
Being an Asean member, Myanmar has been the most 'sickening' member the Association has been dealing with.
