Aung San Suu Kyi

The Prime Minister’s Official Spokesman told journalists that the Prime Minister had released a statement regarding Aung San Suu Kyi’s birthday. The Prime Minister said that he was "bitterly disappointed that today Aung San Suu Kyi would spend her 61st birthday under house arrest, cut off from her family and friends, having had her house arrest extended yet again on 27th May. This was utterly unacceptable and goes against everything the UN Secretary General, most of Burma’s neighbours, the EU and the wider international community have repeatedly called for".

The PMOS said that Ian McCartney had summoned the Burmese Ambassador on the 15th June to press for her immediate release, and the other 1000+ political prisoners. Aung San Suu Kyi had been detained in total for over ten years.
