Press Release

We, Burmese Rohingya Association in Japan, strongly condemned the Burmese brutal regime’s new designated trial of National hero pro-democracy leader Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, The current regime doesn’t care about national reconciliation and thoroughly ignores the future of the country. The regime is pushing ahead with its “seven-step roadmap”, determined to silence all political opposition, citing the case of the imprisoned political detainees of the 88 Generation Students, including leaders Min Ko Naing and Ko Ko Gyi.

The fate of Suu Kyi was pre-determined, and she would be detained again and unable to influence the general election politics of 2010. The pro-democracy leader faces up to five years in prison term if found guilty on charges that the regime accuses of she violated the terms of her house arrest. It is not acceptable for all of us to charge Daw Suu, because she did nothing wrong. She is not guilty. Daw Suu has spent 13 of the past 19 years under house arrest; it was a big crime that the regime committed.

Now it is time for the SPDC to create the necessary conditions for a genuine dialogue with Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and all concerned parties and ethnic groups in order to achieve an inclusive national reconciliation with the support of the United Nations. She is the most prominent of the opposition leaders in Myanmar . She heads the NLD party that won the only credible elections in 1990 and the regime needs to come to stipulations with that, but has failed to do so.

The ruling junta is very unjust to accuse and make the charges stem from May 3 incident in which an American, John William Yettaw, 53, swam across a lake to her house, Suu Kyi's asked Yettaw to leave her home immediately, but Yettaw refused, first saying he didn't want to swim in daylight for fear of being captured, and later blaming leg cramps. the pro-democracy advocate Daw Suu knew nothing about the American's plan to visit her and that she tried in vain to get him to leave.

The accident was merely breach of security where the authorities watched over her house. The regime’s security officers failed to protect Daw Suu .The trial against her in the notorious Insein Jail is nothing but a design to justify another extension of her yearlong detention, which ends May 27, 2009. The United Nations and international jurors have had said that her house arrest is illegal even under Burmese law.

We also express our concern that her transfer from her home to notorious Insein jail will aggravate her health due to the harsh prison condition.

We urge upon the international community, the United Nations, EU, ASEAN and neighbouring India and China to put pressure on the SPDC:

• To provide proper medical care to Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and all inmates.
• To immediately release Daw Suu and all other political prisoners.
• To engage in genuine dialogue with the democratic forces and ethnic nationalities on the basis of all-inclusive democratic and political process.

Thank you,

Yours sincerely,
Nay Lynn
