   Suu Kyi May be Released?


For the first time in more than 2 years, the {Myanmar} military junta allowed UN official Ibrahim Gambari to meet jailed opposition political leader and Nobel Laureate Aung San Suu Kyi for about an hour spiking hopes that she may be released soon.

Suu Kyi, who is 60, has been in house arrest in the last 3 years, her telephone line disconnected and only with her maid and doctor. She has been in similar state for most of the last 16 years under the military junta, which has ruled Myanmar for the most part since 1962. Suu Kyi led her political party National League for Democracy (NLD) in 1990 to an overwhelming victory that was denied by the military regime led by Gen. Than Shwe.

Last month, Shwe accused NLD of supporting “terrorists and destructive groups” and said that he had enough evidence to ban the organization.
