Buffalohair:3 Year Sentence for Aung San Suu Kyi?
Than Shwe on May 12, 2009 by buffalohair
In a spirited turn of events the military junta is seeking 3 additional years of confinement for Daw Aung San Suu Kyi for accepting John Yethaw (Rangoon Swimmer) into her home last week. This reeks of set up and a total denial of Aung San Suu Kyi’s rights even as prescribed by Than Shwe. As usual Than Shwe is penciling in laws to suite his political needs in defiance of even his bogus laws. Apparently he does not realize he is only furthering the resolve of pro democracy groups and now, the general public.
Another turn of events from reliable intelligence sources within Burma is news John Yethaw may be forced to admit to lies the junta has prepared for him. Either by torture or by administering drugs it is expected John Yethaw will admit to untrue statements with regard to the intrusion of Aung San Suu Kyi’s home last week. This will raise another issue since John is an American citizen and maybe subject to cruel and unusual punishment. The military junta has shown total disregard for international laws as well as their own and will stoop to any level to obtain their objectives. Extortion and torture are standard operating procedure as well as crimes against humanity.
There is no question John Yethaw will admit to some of the most vile allegations the junta can muster. Ironically it was an unnamed member of the security force who verified that Aung San Suu Kui was not at all amused by the intrusion early in the investigation. It was the same individual who clearly noted that Aung San Suu Kyi stayed in the second floor while John was relegated to the first floor. The rumor mill from the junta has already spawned myths that this was not John’s first visitation. But by saying so makes the security force guarding Aung San Suu Kyi’s home look inept and bungling at best.
