Suu Kyi 'to be freed in November'
Source: al jazeera/reuters



Myanmar's military government is reportedly planning to release opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi when her current term of house arrest ends in November.

According to Reuters news agency, three sources say the plan was mentioned at a meeting last week attended by Myanmar's home minister, Major General Maung Oo.

He reportedly also said that Tin Oo, vice-chairman of Aung San Suu Kyi's National League for Democracy (NLD) and a former defence minister, would be freed next month.

He has been held in jail or under house arrest for more than a decade.

I sure do hope it's correct...

5. Bullshit, they'll find another excuse to keep her under house arrest.
