The junta's dirty trick on Suu Kyi

Aung San Suu Kyi is facing a 5-year jail term just because an American intruder sneaked into her lakeside home. She has never met him before.

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.

suu kyi is a true liberator. just like mandela, she has been jailed and put under house arrest so many times that she couldnt find time for herself and her family.

the world should find the best solution to deal with the junta and free suu kyi.

myanmar junta will not free suu kyi as they dont want democracy like malaysia.

i believe they will find a way to keep her out of the street or any political gathering.

myanmar is the only asean member that subscribe to junta dictatorship, which is against the norms of humanity

SACK MYANMAR FROM ASEAN!

memang betul sdr jai,

inilah helah junta myanmar untuk terus mengurung suu kyi dan menafikan hak beliau sebagai seorang pemimpin demokrasi yang diiktiraf masyarakat antarabangsa.

tak sampai lagi dua minggu tempoh tahanan di rumahnya akan berakhir, junta sudah pun membuat perancangan rapi bagi menghalang suu kyi bebas. saya sokong pendapat sdr bahawa rakyat amerika yang berenang ke rumahnya itu sudah diupah oleh junta untuk mewujudkan satu kes terhadap suu kyi.

inilah bahana yang akan terus dihadapi oleh pemimpin demokrasi ini di sana,.

saya cuma berharap PBB dan asean dapat berbuat sesuatu untuk memujuk junta membebaskan suu kyi dan menerima hakikat bahawa rakyat negara itu sebenarnya sudah lama mengidamkan demokrasi.

isu myanmar harus diatasi melalui kaedah diplomatik yang betul. walaupun sudah betahun-tahun ia diadakan dan tidakmenampakkan hasil, ia perlu diteruskan dalam semangat asean dan serantau

the influx of rohingya people in malaysia and thailand reflects the disability of the junta to address their domestic problems.

the junta too was unable to convince the international community that it will safeguard the interest of every factions in the country.

the world should come down hard on them

saya terpegun dgn kenyataan menteri luar kita yang baru, anifah aman di amerika semalam mengenai suu kyi dan myanmar.

beliau sepatutnya dah jadi menteri luar lama dahulu.

syabas anifah!
