Aung Sann Suu Kyi 'to be freed in November'
Posted by nyeinchen , Reader : 3016 , 16:16:47   | Category : Burma Politics  

By Conor Duffy from Bangkok

There are unconfirmed reports Burma's detained opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi will be released from house arrest in November.

Aung San Suu Kyi has spent much of the past two decades under house arrest after winning Burma's last elections in 1990.

She has come to be seen as a symbol of democracy in a country that has endured two decades of oppressive military rule.

Today there are reports the Burmese home minister has told a gathering of local officials that Ms Suu Kyi will be released in November.

That is one month after the country's first elections in 20 years, which are expected to be held in October.

Burma's military government has so far not confirmed Ms Suu Kyi's release.

Than Shwe has openly stated that he hates her and would rather see her rot in jail than be loose on the streets causing 'social unrest'.
The best we can hope for is that fatso has a major MI, a painful one and croaks!!

There are more moderate generals.

They will never kick her out of the country, that would harm them too much as she would then have a base for free speech. I honestly dont think she will ever be completely free whilst Than Shwe is alive, there will always be another trumped up charge in the making or the governments fear of civil unrest if she were free. Of course we also know that China is doing its bit here as well and whilst they are achieving such a strong foothold in Burma, they would prefer that things stay as they are.

And then kick her our of the country? Maybe the junta think that it depends on how much she is going to be cooperative with the post elettion regime which gave a kind of "legitimacy" to the military junta.

If it comes from the evil Burmese generals or their slaves, it's a lie. They know only lies and how to lie.
No sensible person would or could trust in such monsters, whose bloated family members have grown obese off the slave labour of the Burmese people.

She'll probably go from house arrest to Insein Prison knowing fatso Than Shwe!

I really can't see her being released as long as he runs the country - he hates her guts and would much rather have her executed if he had his way.
