by Mizzima News

Chiang Mai – In a strange incident, that caught the Burmese police on the wrong foot, an American citizen, John William Yeattaw, swam to the residence of the country’s detained opposition leader Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, from the Innya Lake on May 3. The Noble Peace Laureate’s home is beside the Innya Lake on University Avenue.

The American stayed in Suu Kyi’s home for two days and was arrested on May 6 at 5 a.m. the junta’s mouthpiece New Light of Myanmar said on Thursday. Details of what the US citizen was doing in the Noble Laureate’s home, who is under house arrest, is still not clear.

The newspaper said John William swam across the lake alongside Aung San Suu Kyi’s home, clutching a five-litre water jar. He was identified as a person holding a US passport number (PP.No- 4397677222/28.4.200). He was arrested by security personnel when he came out of Aung San Suu Kyi’s residence.
