KNO CALLS ON UN SECURITY COUNCIL TO SECURE THE RELEASE OF
DAW AUNG SAN SUU KYI
The Kachin National Organization today called on the United Nations (UN) Security Council to secure the release of Nobel Laureate Aung San Suu Kyi, currently held in Insein Prison. She was moved from her home, where she has spent 13 years under house arrest, to the infamous Insein Prison earlier on 14 May 2009, and put on trial for breaking the terms of her house arrest.
The UN Security Council should not just stand by and allow this inhumane act to be perpetrated by the military regime of Burma. Urgent actions are required as the decades-long crying voices and suffering of the people of Burma are loud enough to be heard.
The Military regime has no intention of bringing peace and stability while it enforces its 7 step roadmap towards further militarilization and by crushing all opposition and putting pressure on the ethnic
ceasefire groups to surrender without any political dialogue.
We again urge the UN Security Council to stand up for justice and to protest on behalf of the people of Burma by bringing General Than Shwe, a brutal dictator, to the International Criminal Court.
