[i]"Burmese pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi has been sentenced to an additional 18 months house arrest by a court in Rangoon.
Ms Suu Kyi, a Nobel peace laureate, was convicted of violating state security laws by allowing a US national into her lakeside home after he swam there.
She was jailed for three years with hard labour, but this was commuted to house arrest, an official said."[/i]
A bit of piling on if you ask me.
Political Prisoner in her own home.
[i]"Mr Yettaw, 54, swam to Ms Suu Kyi’s lakeside house in Rangoon uninvited, and stayed there for two nights in May. As a result, Ms Suu Kyi was placed under arrest and accused of breaching the terms of her house arrest.
Mr Yettaw is believed to have epilepsy, diabetes and post-traumatic stress disorder and has been treated at a Rangoon hospital.
Reports say he was discharged from hospital on Monday night after a week of treatment for epileptic seizures. "[/i]
