    thumbs up Suu Kyi expected to be released today: BBC report Suu Kyi released

    Burma 'certain' to release Suu Kyi
    Published: 12/11/2010 at 01:59 PM
    Online news: Asia

    Burma's ruling generals are certain to release detained opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi from house arrest in the next few days, officials said Friday in the wake of a controversial general election.

    "The authorities will release her. It is certain," a government official told AFP, speaking on condition of anonymity.

    Lawyers for the 65-year-old Nobel Peace Prize winner, who has spent much of the past two decades locked up, say her current term of house arrest started with her imprisonment on May 14 last year and so is due to end on Saturday.

    "She will be released for sure as planned," said another government official who also declined to be named. "We are just waiting for the time to release her."

    Suu Kyi's detention was extended by 18 months in August last year over a bizarre incident in which an American swam uninvited to her lakeside home, keeping her off the scene for the first election in 20 years.

    "We believe the authorities will release her but we haven't got any confirmation. They cannot extend her detention according to the law," said one of her lawyers, Nyan Win.

    "They should release her for the country," he added.

    One commentator on BBC World Service radio was suggesting last night it could possibly have the opposite effect...
