Suu Kyi insist she is innocent

Fri 15 May 2009
Filed under: News, Inside Burma
Burma’s jailed pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi has insisted she is not guilty of violating the terms of her house arrest, her lawyer said.

He said Ms Suu Kyi was being held in a “guest room” at the top security Insein jail in Rangoon, but seemed physically well and was “mentally strong”.

Western governments were quick to condemn the new charges against Ms Suu Kyi and call for her immediate release.

She faces trial on Monday over an apparently uninvited visit by a US man.

“Suu Kyi said that she believes that she will be found ‘not guilty’ over her connection with the American intruder,” her lawyer Kyi Win told the Thailand-based independent Burmese publication, Irrawaddy.

Reports say Ms Suu Kyi was charged under the country’s Law Safeguarding the State from the Dangers of Subversive Elements.

The charges carry a maximum jail term of five years, which would stretch her detention past its supposed expiry date on 27 May and beyond the 2010 elections.

World leaders and human rights groups have denounced the move as a pretext for Burma’s military regime to silence its chief opponent ahead of next year’s election.

‘Uninvited guest’

The charges follow an incident in which an American man swam across a lake to her home and stayed there secretly for two days. His motives remain unclear.

Ms Suu Kyi’s lawyer said the American, John Yettaw, had not been invited and that she had tried to send him away.

He is expected to be tried on immigration and security offences, although the charges are yet to be confirmed by the government.

The Burmese authorities have described the American as a 53-year-old Vietnam war veteran and resident of the state of Missouri.

Ms Suu Kyi was detained after her party’s victory in a general election in 1990 and has been under house arrest for much of the past 19 years.

‘Tenuous pretext’

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon have demanded her immediate release.

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown earlier said that if “the 2010 elections are to have any semblance of credibility, she and all political prisoners must be freed to participate”.

Jose Ramos Horta, the East Timorese president and Nobel Peace Prize winner, said he would call on the International Criminal Court to investigate Burma’s military rulers if they did not Ms Suu Kyi.

Thailand’s prime minister also expressed concern on behalf of the Association of South East Asian Nations (Asean), one of the few groups that allow Burma as a member.

Singapore and Indonesia joined the condemnation of the arrest. There has been no comment so far from China - now Burma’s most important trading partner.

Ms Su Kyi’s party, the National League for Democracy (NLD), which won a landslide election victory in 1990 only to be denied power by the military, “strongly condemned” the charges, which come two weeks before her latest detention was due to expire.

LEAD: Obama extends U.S. sanctions on Myanmar

WASHINGTON, May 15 (AP) - (Kyodo)—(EDS: INCORPORATING STORY HEADLINED 'OBAMA MAINTAINS U.S. SANCTIONS ON MYANMAR)

President Barack Obama extended U.S. sanctions on Myanmar's military junta Friday as its new crackdown on pro-democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi triggered broadsides from around the world.

He revealed the extension in a letter to Congress, saying Myanmar's behavior continues to stand in the way of U.S. interests.

"The crisis between the United States and Burma...has not been resolved," Obama said, referring to the country by its previous name.

"These actions and policies are hostile to U.S. interests," he said. "For this reason, I have determined that it is necessary to...maintain in force the sanctions against Burma to respond to this threat."

The United States first imposed sanctions on Myanmar's military junta in 1997 and renewed them several times in view of its repression of democracy activists.

The extension of the sanctions came as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton urged the junta Thursday to immediately release Suu Kyi from detention after she was charged in court in connection with the entry of a man from the United States into her home last week.

Suu Kyi, a Nobel peace laureate, has been under house arrest for more than 12 of the past 20 years, with the junta repeatedly extending her detention.

She led her National League for Democracy party to victory in 1990 but the junta never allowed the election to stand.

"I am deeply troubled by the Burmese government's decision to charge Aung San Suu Kyi for a baseless crime," Clinton told reporters Thursday.

"We call on the Burmese authorities to release her immediately and unconditionally, along with her doctor and the more than 2,100 political prisoners currently being held," she said.

Two key U.S. lawmakers are also urging the junta to release Suu Kyi.

"Aung San Suu Kyi has devoted her life to the peaceful struggle for democracy and freedom for the Burmese people," said Howard Berman, chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and Ileana Ros- Lehtinen, the ranking member of the same committee.

"The military junta should immediately release her, allow greater political freedoms in the country, and respect the human rights of all of Burma's citizens," they said in a joint statement issued Thursday.

On Thursday, Myanmar authorities moved Suu Kyi from house arrest to prison and the junta charged her with violating the terms of her detention in an apparent effort to extend her detainment, which was to end May 27.

They charged Suu Kyi in connection with an incident last week in which a U.S. citizen is accused of swimming across a lake and sneaking into her house to visit her.

Aung San Suu Kyi: Myanmar's democracy face

(CNN) -- Aung San Suu Kyi, the Nobel Peace laureate now facing trial on charges of government subversion, has been the face of Myanmar's pro-democracy movement and the focus of a global campaign to free her.
Aung San Suu Kyi was first detained in 1989 after mass protests against the military government.

Aung San Suu Kyi was first detained in 1989 after mass protests against the military government.

The 63-year-old has been under house arrest for 13 of the past 19 years and is rarely allowed visitors, except her doctor. Her detention was scheduled to end May 27, until an American allegedly swam across a lake and sneaked into her house, violating the conditions of Suu Kyi's house arrest, according to the country's ruling military junta.

The American, John Yettaw, has been charged on two criminal counts: entering the country illegally and staying at a resident's home without government permission, according to a spokesman for Suu Kyi's political party.

Both charges carry a maximum sentence of five years in prison.

After Yettaw's visit, Suu Kyi was arrested and charged with government subversion. She faces up to five years in prison, if convicted. Video Watch a neighbor describe his impressions of Yettaw »

Suu Kyi was born on July 19, 1945, the daughter of Aung San, who fought for Burma's independence from Britain and became the first prime minister of Burma, and of Khin Kyi, a diplomat and later ambassador to India.

Aung San was assassinated in 1947, and Suu Kyi grew up in Myanmar and India before moving to England during the 1960s to study at Oxford University. Myanmar, also known as Burma, has been under military rule since 1962.

Suu Kyi did not return to Myanmar until 1988, when her mother had a stroke. While there on September 24, 1988, Suu Kyi co-founded the National League for Democracy amid mass anti-government demonstrations. She was placed under house arrest the following July on charges of trying to divide the military, charges she denied.

Her party won over 80 percent of the legislative seats in 1990, but she was disqualified from serving because of her house arrest, and the military junta ignored the results.

It was during her house arrest that she won the Nobel Peace Prize and the Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought in 1991, and the Marisa Bellisario Prize, in recognition of women who promote peace and solidarity, in 1992.

During that time, she gained admiration for sometimes speaking over the wall of her garden to her supporters.

In an interview she gave to CNN in 1996, a year after she was released from house arrest, she said, "I always felt free even when I was under house arrest. There's no question of me not feeling free now. And the more restrictive the authorities are, the more clear it is that they know how much support we have."

She was again placed under house arrest on September 22, 2000. The following December, then-U.S. President Bill Clinton awarded her the Presidential Medal of Freedom in absentia.

After a brief release in May 2002, she was placed under house arrest again -- her most recent -- the next year, and authorities have extended it regularly. The country's law allows for a detention of five years without charges being filed, and that period ended at the end of May 2008, according to her lawyer Jared Genser. The government nevertheless extended the house arrest by a year.

In October 2007, clashes sparked by a huge fuel price increase imposed by the military junta erupted between pro-democracy demonstrators and government security forces, killing as many as 110 people, including 40 Buddhist monks.

The junta said then that it had detained more than 2,900 people.

The government has scheduled elections for next year that they say will lead the nation toward democracy. Human-rights organizations have said the vote will merely extend military rule in the nation.

Top US senators warn Myanmar over Aung San Suu Kyi

Fri May 15, 10:53 am ET

Top US senators warn Myanmar over Aung San Suu Kyi AFP/File – US Senator John Kerry, seen here on May 05, 2009, and Republican Senator Richard Lugar, have urged Myanmar …

WASHINGTON (AFP) – Two top US senators urged Myanmar to free pro-democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi and urged "reform-minded" members of its ruling junta to step forward to help forge new ties with the United States.

"Now is the time for reform-minded leaders within the military junta to step forward and be heard," said Democratic Senator John Kerry and Republican Senator Richard Lugar, the top Senate Foreign Relations Committee members.

"Releasing Aung San Suu Kyi and other political prisoners would signal the start of a constructive dialogue with the United States," they said in a joint statement.

Myanmar's military rulers were facing intense international pressure to reverse course after the Nobel Peace laureate, 63, was imprisoned ahead of a new trial next week for breaching the terms of her house arrest.

"The Obama Administration and Congress are reviewing America?s policy toward Burma. At this critical time, some in the junta are trying to leverage the recent alleged unauthorized entry into Aung San Suu Kyi?s compound to extend her detention," said Kerry and Lugar.

The ruling military junta took Aung San Suu Kyi from her home on Thursday to Yangon's notorious Insein prison, where she was charged over a bizarre incident in which an American man swam to her lakeside residence.

There was no comment from Myanmar's secretive regime, which has kept the frail opposition leader in detention for most of the last 19 years and now looks set to do so past controversial elections that are due next year.

"This action sends precisely the wrong message to the citizens of Burma, the people of Southeast Asia, and all those in the global community who seek for the Burmese people the opportunity to live in a country where universal human rights are respected, not trampled," said Kerry and Lugar.

UN expert: Release Myanmar activist Aung San Suu Kyi

Geneva - The United Nations special expert for human rights in Myanmar called Thursday for the "unconditional release" of opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi. Tomas Ojea Quintana, the special rapporteur, said the detention of Suu Kyi was unlawful, both according to international law and Myanmar's own domestic legislation
.

The Nobel Peace Prize winner, 63, was charged earlier in the day with allowing an unauthorized US national to visit her Yangon home, where she has been under detention for the past six years.

The UN expert said the opposition leader could not be blamed for the intrusion into her home.

"Since her house is well guarded by security forces, the responsibility for preventing such intrusions, and alerting the authorities, lies with the security forces and not with Aung San Suu Kyi and her aides," Ojea Quintana said.

He also said that "all 2,156 prisoners of conscience currently detained by the authorities should be released before the 2010 elections.

US consul meets American detained in Myanmar

1 hr 48 mins ago

YANGON, Myanmar – Myanmar authorities allowed a U.S. diplomat to visit an American arrested last week for swimming across a lake to sneak into the home of detained democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi, according to a state television report Wednesday.

Myanmar state television showed a still photo of John William Yettaw meeting with consular chief Colin Furst. A U.S. diplomat confirmed the meeting, saying it lasted 30 minutes and that Yettaw appeared to be in good spirits and said he had been treated well.

The diplomat, who insisted on anonymity because he is not authorized to speak to the press, said that Yettaw had not yet been formally charged with any crime. He did not elaborate, calling the issue sensitive.

It was the first time a U.S. Embassy official had access to Yettaw since he was arrested May 6 after allegedly staying secretly for two days at Suu Kyi's house.

Wednesday's TV report said the meeting took place at the Aung Tha-byay police station in Yangon, which in the past has been used for detention and interrogation of suspected political dissidents.

Suu Kyi's supporters fear that Yettaw's reported stay could put her in legal jeopardy. Her personal doctor, one of the only people allowed to visit her on a regular basis, was detained last Thursday for no publicly announced reason.

She has been in detention for 13 of the last 19 years — including the past six — without trial for her nonviolent promotion of democracy despite international pressure for her release.

Myanmar's state-run newspapers reported last week that Yettaw, 53, of Falcon, Missouri, swam about 1 1/4 miles (2 kilometers) on the night of May 3 to the lakeside home of the 63-year-old Suu Kyi and left the same way on the night of May 5, before being arrested the next morning. The report said his motive was under investigation.

One of many strict rules Myanmar's military government imposes on citizens is that they must notify local officials about any overnight visitor who is not a family member. The law also states that foreigners are not allowed to spend the night at a local's home.

အမ်ိဳးယုတ္ ေတြ လုပ္ေနက်

ျမန္မာ့ဒီမုိကေရစီေခါင္းေဆာင္ ေဒၚေအာင္ဆန္းစုၾကည္ရဲ႕ ေနအိမ္၀င္းထဲကုိ ေရကူး
၀င္ေရာက္တဲ့ အေမရိကန္ ႏုိင္ငံသားတဦးကုိ ဖမ္းဆီးထားတယ္ဆိုတဲ့ သတင္းေတြ
ထြက္ေပၚေနခ်ိန္မွာပဲ ျမန္မာစစ္အစုိးရ အာဏာပုိင္ေတြက အေမရိကန္သတင္းေထာက္
၂ ဦးကုိလည္း ႏုိင္ငံက ႏွင္ထုတ္ခဲ့တယ္လုိ႔ သိရပါတယ္။ အေမရိကန္စင္တာက စီစဥ္တဲ့
စာနယ္ဇင္းသင္တန္းတခုကို ပုိ႔ခ်အၿပီး သူတုိ႔ ၂ ဦးကုိ မႏၲေလးၿမိဳ႕မွာ အာဏာပုိင္ေတြက
ထိန္းသိမ္းၿပီး ႏုိင္ငံက ထြက္ခြာခုိင္းခဲ့တာပါ။ အေၾကာင္းစုံကုိ ဆက္သြယ္စုံစမ္းထားတဲ့
ကုိေအာင္လြင္ဦးက တင္ျပေပးထားပါတယ္။

ျမန္မာႏုိင္ငံအလယ္ပုိင္း မႏၲေလးၿမိဳ႕မွာ ေဒသခံ သတင္းသမားတခ်ဳိ႕အတြက္ စာနယ္ဇင္း
သင္တန္း ေပးခဲ့ၾကတဲ့ အေမရိကန္ ဓာတ္ပုံသတင္းေထာက္ တဦးျဖစ္တဲ့ ဂ်ယ္ရီ
ရက္ဒ္ဖန္း (Jerry Redfern) နဲ႔ ဇနီးသည္ျဖစ္သူ ကာရန္း ကုတ္စ္ (Karen Coates) တုိ႔
၂ ဦးကုိ အာဏာပုိင္ေတြက ႏုိင္ငံတြင္းကေန ေမာင္းႏွင္ထုတ္ခဲ့တာပါ။ မႏၲေလးၿမိဳ႕မွာ
ဗုဒၶဟူးေန႔က သူတုိ႔ ၂ ဦးကုိ ထိန္းသိမ္းၿပီး ခ်က္ခ်င္းဆုိသလုိ ေနာက္တေန႔ပဲ ရန္ကုန္ၿမိဳ႕
ကတဆင့္ ႏုိင္ငံကေန ထြက္ခြာခုိင္းခဲ့တာလုိ႔ အခုအခါ ထုိင္းႏုိင္ငံ ဘန္ေကာက္ၿမိဳ႕ကုိ
ျပန္ေရာက္ေနတဲ့ သူတုိ႔ ၂ ဦးက ေၾကညာခ်က္တေစာင္ ထုတ္ျပန္ၿပီး ေျပာလုိက္ပါ
တယ္။ ဘာအေၾကာင္းေၾကာင့္ဆုိတာ အာဏာပုိင္ေတြဘက္က ရွင္းမျပေပမယ့္
သူတုိ႔ကုိ အစုိးရ႐ုံးစုိက္ရာ ေနျပည္ေတာ္က တုိက္႐ုိက္ၫႊန္ၾကားခ်က္အရ ဆုိၿပီးေတာ့
သာ ေျပာတယ္လုိ႔လည္း ဆုိပါတယ္။

တကယ္ေတာ့ မႏၲေလးၿမိဳ႕မွာ အေမရိကန္စင္တာက စီစဥ္တဲ့ စာနယ္ဇင္းသင္တန္း
ေပးေနခ်ိန္ အထူးရဲတပ္ဖဲြ႕က လာၿပီး အကဲခတ္တာေတြ ရွိခဲ့ေပမယ့္ အေစာပုိင္းမွာ
တစုံတရာ အေႏွာင့္အယွက္ေပးတာ မရွိခဲ့ဘူးလုိ႔လည္း ဆုိပါတယ္။ ဒါေပမယ့္လည္း
သင္တန္းအၿပီး ဗုဒၶဟူးေန႔ ညပုိင္းက်မွ ပစၥည္းေတြသိမ္းဖုိ႔ လူ၀င္မႈႀကီးၾကပ္ေရး
အရာရွိေတြက လာၿပီးၫႊန္ၾကားခဲ့တယ္၊ အဲဒီေနာက္ ရန္ကုန္ကုိ ရထားနဲ႔ ခ်က္ခ်င္း
ဆုိသလုိ ေခၚသြားၿပီး ေလယာဥ္ေပၚ တင္ေပးခဲ့တာလုိ႔လည္း သူတုိ႔က ေျပာပါတယ္။
သူတုိ႔ ၂ ဦးအေနနဲ႔ ၿပီးခဲ့တဲ့ ဇန္န၀ါရီလတုန္းကလည္း အလားတူ သင္တန္းေတြ ပုိ႔ခ်
ဘူးၿပီးေတာ့ ဒီတႀကိမ္မွာလည္း ျမန္မာစစ္အစုိးရရဲ႕ ဆင္ဆာအဖဲြ႕နဲ႔ အထူးရဲတပ္ဖဲြ႕တုိ႔
ကလည္း လက္ခံထားၿပီးသားလုိ႔ ဆုိပါတယ္။

သတင္းလုပ္ငန္းအတြက္ အခုလုိ ေရာက္လာေပမယ့္လုိ႔ စာနယ္ဇင္းလြတ္လပ္ခြင့္မရွိတဲ့
ႏုိင္ငံတႏုိင္ငံအျဖစ္ သတ္မွတ္ခံထားရတဲ့ ျမန္မာႏုိင္ငံ အေနနဲ႔ကေတာ့ စာနယ္ဇင္း
သမားေတြကုိ လက္ခံေလ့ သိပ္မရွိဘူးလုိ႔လည္း အခုအျဖစ္အပ်က္နဲ႔ ပတ္သက္လုိ႔
ျမန္မာႏုိင္ငံက စာနယ္ဇင္းသမားတဦးက မွတ္ခ်က္ေပးပါတယ္။

“ဘာျပႆနာျဖစ္လဲေတာ့ မသိရဘူး။ က်ေနာ္သိသေလာက္ ဒီဆရာလင္မယားကေတာ့
ေအးေအးေဆးေဆးပါပဲ။ သူတို႔တည္းတဲ့ မႏၱေလးစီးတီးဟုိတယ္ကို ည ၉ နာရီေလာက္
လာေခၚသြားၿပီး ညတြင္းခ်င္းပဲ ရထားနဲ႔ ရန္ကုန္ကိုလုိက္ပုိ႔တယ္။ အမွန္က သူတို႔က
ေနာက္တရက္မွျပန္ရမွာ။ အဲဒါကို လက္မခံဘဲ ေခၚသြားတာ။ ဒီမွာက ဂ်ာနယ္လစ္ေတြ
ဆို သိပ္ေပး၀င္တာမွ မဟုတ္တာ။”

ျမန္မာႏုိင္ငံက စာနယ္ဇင္းသမားတဦး ေျပာျပသြားတာ ျဖစ္ပါတယ္။

အခုအျဖစ္အပ်က္ဟာဆုိရင္ အေမရိကန္ ႏုိင္ငံသားတဦး ေဒၚေအာင္ဆန္းစုၾကည္
ေနအိမ္ကုိ ဥပေဒမဲ့ ၀င္ေရာက္ခဲ့လုိ႔ ဖမ္းဆီးစစ္ေဆးတာေတြ လုပ္ေနတယ္ဆုိၿပီး
ျမန္မာစစ္အစုိးရက ေျပာဆုိထားခ်ိန္နဲ႔လည္း တုိက္တုိက္ဆုိင္ဆုိင္ ျဖစ္ပြားခဲ့တာပါ။
ႏုိင္ငံက ျပန္လည္ထြက္ခြာလာၾကရတဲ့ သတင္းစာသမား ၂ ဦးကေတာ့ ေဒၚေအာင္ဆန္း
စုၾကည္ ေနအိမ္၀င္းထဲက ျဖစ္ရပ္ရဲ႕ အက်ဳိးဆက္ ျဖစ္ေကာင္းလည္း ျဖစ္လိမ့္မယ္လုိ႔
ဆုိေပမယ့္ တကယ့္အေၾကာင္းရင္းမွန္ကုိ သူတုိ႔အေနနဲ႔ ဘယ္လုိမွ သိခြင့္မရခဲ့ဘူးလုိ႔
လည္း ေျပာပါတယ္။ ဒါေပမယ့္လုိ႔ သူတုိ႔ ၂ ဦးရဲ႕ အျဖစ္အပ်က္နဲ႔ ပတ္သက္လုိ႔ေရာ
ဘာအေၾကာင္းေၾကာင့္ အခုလုိ ထြက္ခြာခုိင္းရတယ္ ဆုိတာမ်ဳိးေတြနဲ႔ ပတ္သက္လုိ႔ေရာ
အာဏာပုိင္ေတြဘက္က တစုံတရာ ေျပာတာဆုိတာမ်ဳိးေတာ့ မၾကားရပါဘူး။

Making fake story or Time for a fresh approach to Burma's military government

By Jonathan Manthorpe, Vancouver SunMay 11, 2009 2:04 AM

It was immediately noticeable in the stories from the official Burmese media last week that the American who swam to the lakeside villa of detained opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi spent "three nights" in the compound before attempting to swim back to his hotel.

If the story's true, the man named as John William Yeattaw also spent three days with Suu Kyi, but -- nudge, nudge, wink, wink -- that doesn't have the same implication.

And it is because of those implications from the military regime's mouthpieces -- that this was an amorous assignation rather than a political event or even a weird piece of American eccentricity -- that people in Rangoon and elsewhere in Burma have grave doubts about its truth.

There is a widespread belief in Rangoon that this story was manufactured to sully Suu Kyi's reputation and thus blunt criticism of the military regime, which has already announced it plans to renew her detention when the current six-year term ends later this month.

But Suu Kyi's popularity among Burmese people remains undimmed, though she has been detained in her crumbling and mould-stained house on University Avenue in Rangoon for most of the last 19 years.

The junta has been unstinting in its efforts over the years to manufacture or twist events to undermine the domestic support that saw her National League for Democracy (NLD) win 85 per cent of the parliamentary seats in 1990 elections.

The junta, now led by General Than Shwe, has always refused to acknowledge those results. It spent the last 12 years concocting a fraudulent "civilian" constitution adopted in a sham referendum last year. This envisages multi-party elections next year, but also ensures the military continues to control the presidency and all the important ministries, and retains the authority to dismiss the parliament at will.

So it is hardly surprising that most of the western world, and especially the United States and the European Union, continue to apply rigorous economic sanctions and other embargoes on contacts with the Burmese regime. Indeed, only 10 days ago the EU reaffirmed those sanctions.

But there is a growing acceptance that the moral high ground held by the West on the Burma issue is a road to nowhere. The generals have not budged one inch over the years in the face of sanctions that have kept most of Burma's 80 million people in abject poverty.

The generals themselves are largely untroubled by the constraints of sanctions. They have merely grown grossly rich on natural resources deals with China, which doesn't give a fig about other regimes' repression of their people any more than it does about its own.

And Than Shwe and his boys have been just as disdainful of the blandishments of the "constructive engagement" policies of Burma's neighbours in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations. With neither stick nor carrot moving the junta, it is clearly time for a new approach.

Last October the International Crisis Group led by former Australian foreign minister Gareth Evans criticized the West for tying aid to political reform in Burma after hurricane Nargis struck last year. The group followed that up with a report last month called "Missing the Boat on Myanmar" -- Myanmar is the name the junta uses for Burma.

In this report the group said "The EU should abandon a policy maintained by those with an eye on noble points rather than on new opportunities to promote change."

Even Suu Kyi, who used to be adamant that economic sanctions were essential is now much less dogmatic on the question.

The EU may not have got the message that sanctions are counter-productive, but the new administration in Washington has. In February, while on a visit to Indonesia, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said, "Clearly, the path we have taken in imposing sanctions hasn't influenced the Burmese junta."

It seems she has ordered a review and refashioning of American policy towards Burma. Clinton's main policy adviser on mainland Southeast Asia, Stephen Blake, has even visited the generals' new capital at Naypidaw, where he met foreign minister U Nyan Win.

The review may well conclude that, rather than sanctions, it may be wiser to smother the malevolent economic influence of China with trade and investment in Burma.

It may also decide that next year's elections, flawed as they are, are better than none, especially as the junta has said clearly it will allow United Nations monitors.

It may thus make sense to urge Suu Kyi and the NLD to drop their current boycott and instead show some faith in the popular support that won them the 1990 elections.

And it's worth remembering that the Burmese junta has modelled the new constitution on the old military-dominated system in Indonesia. But in 1998 Indonesia's military dictatorship collapsed under its own weight and evolved with surprisingly little violence into a proper democracy.

The Pa-O Villagers Hsi Hseng Township
May 8, 2009
On May 6, 2009, SPDC Light Infantry Battalion No 425 brutally killed
village headman and another about 20 years old young man of Saw Sar village, as well as tortured 80 villagers from Naung Tha Bang and Saw Sar village in Hsi Hseng Township, southern Shan State.
All the arrested 80 villagers were accused of in connection with resistance groups and inhumanly tied, beaten, kicked and hit by SPDC soldiers during the brutally interrogation. Most of villager covered with blood, some even unable to walk and bleeding from their mouth, and seriously wounded.

We, PYO believe that, the brutal action against innocent villagers, was in response to the joint ally of Pa-O National Liberation Army and Karen National Liberation Army clashed with Burma Army Patrolling near Banyen, about 50 miles south of Taunggyi, capital of Shan State on May 3, 2009.

Following the clashed, SPDC soldiers currently speed up military operation, and arresting villagers in Hsi Hseng township for porter, carrying arms and ammunition to front line. One local people said “No man sleeping at home and living in the village now. Every body runs away to the forest and hide, and a lot of people take refuge in the Buddhist temple”

The villagers are just civilians and simply working in farm for their livelihood in their daily lives, and not involve with any arm groups. They are now become the victims of conflict between arm groups.

Therefore, we, Pa-O Youth Organization (PYO) strongly condemned SPDC action killing the innocence civilians, and military operation against the ethnic people, and respect human right.

အေဟာင္းေပမယ့္ ဟုတ္လို ့တင္လိုက္တယ္ အျပင္းေျပေပါ့

Correspondents in Rangoon | May 10, 2008
Article from: The Australian
THE Burmese junta last night seized all the relief aid the UN World Food Program had flown into the country even as survivors of Cyclone Nargis waited for food, shelter and medicine.

The move by Burma's generals left the WFP with no choice but to suspend the aid operation, already staggering under the obstruction of the regime.

WFP spokesman Paul Risley said last night that all "the food aid and equipment that we managed to get in has been confiscated". The shipment included 38 tonnes of high-energy biscuits. Mr Risley said it was not clear why the material was seized, but he had earlier blasted the junta, saying its refusal to let in foreign aid workers was "unprecedented" in the history of humanitarian work.

While the junta dithered and appeared overwhelmed by the disaster - the worst in the country's recorded history - more than a million homeless people waited for food, shelter and medicine, many crammed in Buddhist monasteries or camped in the open.

The junta said yesterday it was grateful for international assistance, which has included 11 chartered planes loaded with aid supplies. But the best way to help was to send in material rather than personnel.

It said one UN relief flight from Qatar was sent back after landing in Rangoon on Thursday because it carried a search-and-rescue team and media who did not have permission to enter the country.

More than 62,000 people are known to have died or are missing from Nargis, which hit the country's Irrawaddy Delta last Saturday. Shari Villarosa, who heads the US embassy in Rangoon, said the number of dead could eventually exceed 100,000 because of illnesses. Health experts are now scrambling to prevent the spread of diseases such as malaria, with outbreaks already surfacing in areas hardest hit. Early estimates indicate 20 per cent of children in the most devastated areas are suffering from diarrhoea, and the situation could worsen, said Osamu Kunii, UNICEF's chief of health and nutrition in Burma.

The isolationist regime has refused to grant visas to foreign aid workers who could assess the extent of the disaster and manage the logistics. Mr Risley said earlier the organisation had submitted 10 visa applications around the world, including six in Bangkok, but none has been approved.

Even if the Government changes its mind, there is no hope of getting any visas in Bangkok until Monday because a Thai holiday yesterday shut the Burmese embassy, he said.

"The frustration caused by what appears to be a paperwork delay is unprecedented in modern humanitarian relief efforts," Mr Risley said.

But there was no sign the junta was relenting. "Myanmar has prioritised receiving emergency relief provisions and making strenuous effort delivering it with its own labour to the affected areas," a statement by the junta said. "(But) Myanmar is not ready to receive rescue and media teams from foreign countries."

Critical aid and experts are poised in neighbouring Thailand and elsewhere to rush into one of the world's poorest nations.

Burma has also snubbed a US offer to help. The US has ruled out conducting aerial food drops without the junta's permission, after calls for the international community to proceed with the relief effort regardless of Burma's position. But US Defence Secretary Robert Gates said Washington was "prepared to help ... and it would be a tragedy if these assets" were not used.

It is not clear how much aid will reach the Irrawaddy Delta where entire villages have been submerged with bodies floating in salty water and children ripped from their parents arms.

By rejecting US aid, the junta is refusing to take advantage of Washington's enormous ability to deliver aid quickly, which was evident during the 2004 tsunami.

Burma's Suu Kyi 'in poor health'

Ms Suu Kyi's latest detention is due to expire at the end of May

Burma's detained opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi is suffering from low blood pressure and dehydration and is barely eating, her party spokesman says.

Nyan Win said they were extremely worried about the 63-year-old Nobel Laureate's health.

A medical assistant has placed Ms Suu Kyi on an intravenous drip. Her own doctor was reportedly detained after visiting her earlier this week.

Ms Suu Kyi She has been under almost permanent house arrest since 1990.

It followed the victory of her National League for Democracy (NLD) in a general election in 1990. The junta has refused to allow the party to assume power.

Ms Suu Kyi's latest period of detention is due to expire at the end of May but the authorities have not yet said if it will be extended.

Break-in

"We are very concerned about her health and security conditions," Nyan Win of the NLD told the BBC.

He said Ms Suu Kyi had suffered a loss of appetite and had gone three to four days without eating.

As a result, her blood pressure had dropped and she was showing symptoms of dehydration.

Nyan Win said the party was closely monitoring the situation, and would decide next week whether to press for greater medical treatment for Ms Suu Kyi.

Nyan Win said it was not clear why physician Tin Myo Win had been arrested last Thursday.

He speculated that it could be linked to the arrest on Tuesday of a man carrying a US passport who swam across a lake to the property.

About 20 police are reported to have entered Ms Suu Kyi's house on Thursday morning.

It followed reports that an American, identified as John William Yeattaw, had managed to breach tight security to swim across Inya Lake and enter Ms Suu Kyi's house secretly on Sunday.

He was arrested after swimming back across the lake late on Tuesday.

Such an incident would be the first time someone has broken into Ms Suu Kyi's compound.
