Burma Briefing No. 6
Aung San Suu Kyi has now spent more than 15 years in detention, most of it under house arrest. According to Burmese law, she must be released from her current period of detention on Saturday 13th November.
World leaders regularly express support for Aung San Suu Kyi and the struggle for human rights and democracy in Burma. However, when it comes to acting on requests from Aung San Suu Kyi for practical international support, they have been less forthcoming.
This briefing provides recommendations for action from the international community, whether or not Aung San Suu Kyi is released on 13th November.
