Burmese Opposition Leader Charged with Violating House Arrest

(14 May 09 - RV) Burmese opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi was charged today with breaching the terms of her house arrest and faces up to five years in jail for llowing an American man to stay at her lakeside home.

The man broke into her house uninvited last week.

Burma Campaign UK Director, Mark Farmaner, told Charles Collins the ruling Junta is scared of the Nobel Prize winner.
