Myanmar court agrees to hear Suu Kyi appeal
Here is a good news for peace lovers, The mynmar court accepted the appeal of pro democratic leader Aang San Suu Kyi. She is languising in jail in junta ruled Myanmat. Recently her jail term was extented by 18 months because an american visited her without junta's pemission.
Well, i am sure her appeal will not be granted, and some how the court will find some other reason to impose some extra months......extented till she dies.
Then world will say....sorry to her soul.
A court in junta-ruled Myanmar agreed on Friday to hear an appeal by opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi against her conviction that
extended her house arrest by another 18 months, her lawyer said.
The Nobel laureate was found guilty last month of breaching security laws following an internationally condemned trial that was sparked by an incident in which an American man swam uninvited to her lakeside mansion.
"The court agreed to hear the appeal. Both sides, the government and ourselves, have to give our arguments on September 18," her main lawyer Kyi Win said.
Her lawyers had lodged the appeal at Yangon divisional court on Thursday but the judges could have refused it.
The court also agreed to hear appeals by two female aides who live with Suu Kyi and had also been convicted, Kyi Win said.
"It is the right decision to accept the case. We appeal for the release of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi," said Nyan Win, the spokesman for Suu Kyi's National League for Democracy.
The original verdict sparked international outrage and the imposition of further sanctions against Myanmar's ruling generals, who have already kept Suu Kyi locked up for 14 of the past 20 years.
