    Burma Court sentences Aung San Suu Kyi to 3 years

    Burma Court sentences Aung San Suu Kyi to 3 years
    By Deutsche Presse Agentur


    Rangoon - A Burmese court Tuesday sentenced opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi to three years in prison and hard labour.

    The verdict however was immediately commuted to 18 months under house detention by the country's military supremo.

    A special court set up in Insein Prison found Suu Kyi, 64, guilty of breaking the terms of her detention by allowing a US national to swim into her lakeside compound-cum-prison on May 3.

    Burma's junta leader, Senior General Than Shwe, immediately reduced the court's three-year sentence in prison to one year and six months under house arrest.

    Which gets her nicely out of the way for the charade of next year's elections run and and orchestrated by the military.
