Grim birthday for Suu Kyi

20/06/2018 Posted by admin

RANGOON – Burmese democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi has marked a grim 64th birthday in prison, as activists took to the internet and staged worldwide protests to call for her release and an end to her trial. Famous names, including British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, Beatles legend Paul McCartney and US actors George Clooney and Julia Roberts, offered support on a website while world leaders called for the ruling junta to free her. The military regime has kept the Nobel Laureate in detention for 13 of the past 19 years, and she is on trial at Rangoon’s Insein Prison over a bizarre incident in which an American man swam to her home.
