After 13 years under house arrest Nobel Laureate Suu Kyi, is currently being held in Yangon’s Insein prison on charges of violating the terms of her detention after an American swam uninvited to her lakeside home this month. Her current detention order expires on May 27.
Critics say the ruling generals want to silence her until after a multi-party election in the former Burma in 2010.

We spoke to the Chairperson of Burma Action Ireland, Gearoid Kilgallen who says this latest move comes as no surprise.
